Lutron Electronics Establishes Ashland, Virginia, Operations
The $28.3 million project is expected to create 200 jobs in Hanover County.
“We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Hanover County community and further supporting our global customers with increased manufacturing capacity,” said Lutron President Ed Blair.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with Hanover County to secure the project for Virginia. Governor Youngkin approved a $250,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Hanover County with the project. Funding and services to support Lutron Electronics’ employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
“As Lutron Electronics expands its domestic and global reach, a Hanover County manufacturing location offers the strategic location, infrastructure, and workforce needed to accommodate continued growth,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “The Commonwealth of Virginia is proud to support the company’s expansion and strengthen our long-term corporate partnership.”
A family-owned company founded in 1961, Lutron Electronics manufactures lighting controls, automated shading solutions, and intelligent lighting fixtures for residential and commercial applications. Headquartered in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania, the company offers more than 15,000 energy-saving products, sold in 100+ countries.
