Hollingsworth & Vose Expands Floyd County, Virginia, Manufacturing Plant

Hollingsworth & Vose, a global manufacturer of advanced materials used in filtration, battery, and industrial applications, will expand its operation in Floyd County, Virginia. The $40.2 million project is expected to create 25 jobs.

The company will add over 28,000-square-feet to its facility at 365 Christiansburg Pike Northeast to accommodate new production equipment to meet increased demand.

“We’ve been a part of the Floyd, Virginia community since 1976. This facility is essential to serving both our global and domestic customers,” said Josh Ayer, CEO of H&V. “We chose Virginia for this expansion because of its positive business environment and strong support from the Commonwealth of Virginia and Floyd County.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with Floyd County to secure the project for Virginia. Governor Youngkin approved a $558,700 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Floyd County with the project.

“Hollingsworth & Vose has played a role in the success of Virginia’s advanced materials industry over the past 46 years, and we are thrilled to support this important corporate partner’s expansion in Floyd County,” noted Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “The company’s continued investment is a strong testament to the New River Valley’s strategic location and business-friendly environment, and we thank H&V for creating high-quality jobs in Floyd County.”

East Walpole, Massachusetts-based Hollingsworth & Vose Company is a global manufacturer of nonwoven materials and engineered papers used in filtration, energy, and industrial applications.
