RICHMOND, VA -The Corsi Group will open a cabinet manufacturing plant in Virginia, creating 110 new jobs. The manufacturer of custom and semi-custom cabinetry said it will invest approximately $5 million in its first East Coast manufacturing operation.
The news was announced April 29.
Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe approved a $100,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to assist Charlotte County, VA, with the project. The Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission also approved $375,000 in Tobacco Region Opportunity Funds.
“The addition of more than 100 new jobs is significant news for Charlotte County as it continues to rebound economically. As The Corsi Group expands its footprint and establishes its first East Coast manufacturing operation in Virginia, we celebrate a new corporate partner in a region that offers a robust, skilled workforce and improved cost competitiveness to the company’s expanding customer base,” Gov. McAuliffe said.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Charlotte County and Virginia’s Growth Alliance to help secure the project for Virginia. The state competed against Kentucky for the project.
The Charlotte County plant will be The Corsi Group's third U.S. manufacturing facility. Founded in 1973, The Corsi Group is headquartered in Indianapolis, IN. Products are sold under the Corsi and Greenfield brands.
“We are confident in our choice of Charlotte County as our best for quality labor, a business-friendly governmental environment, and area supporting companies with whom we will work,” said Pat Corsi, founder, chairman and CEO of The Corsi Group. “We plan to continue our past practices of community involvement to add local value beyond the jobs we will be creating.”
