Arkay Packaging to expand Botetourt County operations
New York-based Arkay Packaging Corp., a major folding carton manufacturer, plans to spend $11 million to upgrade equipment and expand its Botetourt County operations, a projected that is expected to create 50 jobs.
Founded in 1922 Arkay provides packaging for cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies. The company has a 140,000-square-foot plant in Botetourt, which it opened in 1996.
The company also has a location in Hauppage, N.Y.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Botetourt County to secure the project. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
