Allfirst to expand in Suffolk
Allfirst LLC plans to expand its Suffolk headquarters, creating 27 new jobs over the next three years.
The industrial general contractor and metal fabricator plans to spend $130,000 on the expansion, purchasing new machinery and tools. It will retrain its 62 existing employees in addition to creating new jobs, Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Tuesday.
Allfirst provides design and build services to national corporate clients, including manufacturers, paper mills, chemical plants, converters, food processors, oil terminals and power generators. The company has been located in Suffolk since its founding in 2000 and serves companies in Hampton Roads, Richmond, Roanoke, Maryland, and Northeastern North Carolina.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support Allfirst’s retraining and new job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP). VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change to support employee training activities.
