Ross Industries Expands Fauquier County, Virginia, Operations
The company will construct a new 24,000-square-foot building adjacent to its existing structure.
“We are excited to expand our facility, a testament to our longstanding commitment to Fauquier County, our home for over five decades,” said Jamie Usrey, President and CEO of Ross Industries. “We feel deeply rooted in this community. We have employees who have been dedicated to Ross for more than 45 years, including multiple generations of families who made Ross their career. This expansion, coupled with our partnership with several local technical education organizations for our fast-track machinist program, leadership, and management programs exemplify our ongoing promise to the people and the future of Fauquier County.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with Fauquier County to secure the project for Virginia and will support Ross Industries’ job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities.
As a business incentive supporting economic development, VJIP reduces the human resource costs of new and expanding companies. VJIP is state-funded, demonstrating Virginia’s commitment to enhancing job opportunities for citizens.
“The success of long-term corporate partners like Ross Industries is a prime example of what can be accomplished in the Commonwealth,” noted Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “Our thriving food and beverage processing industry relies on food production machinery manufacturers like Ross, and these synergies have created a robust ecosystem of industry partners and suppliers in Virginia.”
Ross Industries is a manufacturer of food processing and packaging systems that help food producers streamline manufacturing capability and improve quality, productivity, and food safety.
