Amthor International to create 30 jobs in Southern Virginia
Amthor International announced plans Tuesday to ramp up production at its Gretna plant and create 30 jobs, according to a statement on its website.
The Gretna-based company says it is the largest and most diverse manufacturer of truck-mounted tanks in the U.S. The family-owned firm already employs more than 100 people at the 86,000-square-foot plant.
Effective immediately, Amthor will be hiring welders, mechanics, and electricians. The expansion will allow the company to operate its two existing shifts at capacity.
The company grew from a 1928 blacksmith shop in Ellenville, N.Y., to two locations today.
