VIRTEX Expands Operations At Waynesboro, Virginia Plant
“This expansion requires many different skill sets to meet the company’s goals,” Walt Carter, General Manager at the Waynesboro location said. “New team members that have experience in IPC production soldering are in high demand, as well as electronics technicians. We look forward to continued growth in 2020 as well as into the future, consider joining our fast-paced exciting team.”
In 2004, the old GE facility was taken over by PPI-Time Zero, which is also an integrated electronic manufacturing services. In 2018, it was announced that PPI-Time Zero would merge with VIRTEX. The company currently occupies 90,000 square feet of space in a nearly 342,000 square foot facility.
Greg Hitchin, Director of Economic Development and Tourism, said, “manufacturing has been the hallmark of our community since the 1800’s and is one of the top sources of employment in the area. High tech firms like VIRTEX are continuing the tradition of outstanding manufacturing opportunities in Waynesboro.”
“We are pleased that VIRTEX has elected to bring this new product line to Waynesboro,” noted Mayor Bobby Henderson of Waynesboro. “It is especially satisfying to see the former GE facility rejuvenated with this new product line being produced by this state-of-the-art manufacturing firm.”
