RICHMOND, VA - Laminate Technologies (LamTech), manufacturer of custom laminated panels and fabricated components, will invest more than $2 million to open a manufacturing facility in Henry County, VA. The investment is expected to create at least 30 new jobs.

"After a careful evaluation of various sites in North Carolina and Virginia, and numerous visits to both regions, it became clear that Virginia was the clear choice," said Fred Zoeller, President & CEO, Laminate Technologies. "The people in the Economic Development Department and the overall attitude from those whom we visited within the state department were all great and very helpful. The overall support that we received from the people of Martinsville - Henry County, along with their continued cooperation in helping us locate an essential rail siding, is fantastic."

LamTech, founded in 1985, is one of the country's largest privately held custom laminators. With plants currently in OH, TX and TN, the new VA manufacturing facility will be the company's fourth location.
