Ireland-Based Anord Mardix Expands Manufacturing in Henrico County, Virginia

Anord Mardix (USA), Inc., an Ireland-based leading global producer of power distribution and protection equipment, will invest $907,500 to establish its second manufacturing facility in Henrico County, Virginia.

The investment will allow the company to augment production of power infrastructure components to its North American data center clients, supporting new and projected growth. “Since our initial expansion from Ireland into Virginia five years ago, Anord Mardix has been extremely pleased with the wealth of talented labor that is available in the Commonwealth,” said President of Anord Mardix Rob Sweaney. “It is through the efforts of these employees that we are able to once again expand into a second Virginia facility. We appreciate the support extended by Governor Northam’s office and look forward to even more growth in the near future.”

With one of the most comprehensive product ranges in the market, Anord Mardix (USA), Inc. manufactures and distributes low- and middle-voltage electrical switchgear and is the vendor of choice to the global data center and cloud computing.

“In 2014, Anord Mardix, Inc. chose Henrico County as the site of its first U.S. manufacturing facility, thanks to the skilled and robust local workforce and quality real estate,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Brian Ball. “The company’s decision to establish a second operation five years later is a testament to the region’s business climate and strong talent pipeline, which continues to attract and retain impressive corporate partners. We are proud that Anord Mardix is thriving in the U.S. market, and thank the company for its continued investment and job creation in Henrico County.”

“As a leading service provider in the global data center and cloud computing sectors, the decision by Anord Mardix, Inc. to expand in Henrico County reinforces the access to skilled talent and high quality of life that this region offers,” said Governor Ralph Northam. “High impact, high-growth businesses like Anord Mardix, Inc. strengthen Virginia’s economy by creating 21st-century jobs, stimulating supply-chain activity, and increasing exports, and we look forward to seeing this innovative manufacturer continue to succeed in the Commonwealth.”

Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the Henrico Economic Development Authority to secure the project for Virginia and will support Anord Mardix’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP).

“Just five years ago, the Henrico EDA and the Greater Richmond Partnership successfully recruited Anord from Ireland to start a new U.S. operation in Eastern Henrico; today we celebrate Anord Mardix, a result of the 2018 merger with Mardix, on their continued expansion here,” said Chairman of the Henrico County Board of Supervisors Tyrone Nelson. “Anord Mardix’s success supports Henrico’s growing data center cluster as they supply critical power infrastructure to data centers and mission-critical facilities across the globe. This U.S. headquarters and manufacturing expansion demonstrate how Henrico truly is a great place to grow your business.”
