Porcher Industries’ subsidiary BGF Industries Inc. has announced its planned investment of $7 million USD to relocate its headquarters and research & development activities from Greensboro, NC to the City of Danville and Pittsylvania County, VA. In early 2019, the company will construct a 2,320 sqm purpose-built facility at Cyber Park, owned by the Danville-Pittsylvania County Regional Industrial Facility Authority. The move will create 65 new positions.
Porcher Industries has transformed from a regionally-organised group to a truly global company that meets the needs of the global market place in which it operates. The investment in brand new US headquarters and an advanced technology centre is a key component of this global growth, that will allow improved support and service to the company’s customers in this part of the world. The move follows BGF Industries’ acquisition of a 13,375 sqm manufacturing plant in Virginia last year, and reinforces Porcher Industries’ commitment to the US market.
