Cleanroom supply company to expand in Augusta
Hutchins & Hutchins plans to expand in Augusta County, Gov. McAuliffe announced Monday.
The small business assembles and distributes cleanroom supplies and equipment. It plans to invest $224,000 in expanding its warehouse, a project expected to create 15 jobs.
The company also custom packs and co-packs supplies for the aerospace, biotech, food, government, medical, optical, pharmaceutical and tissue-bank industries.
“With continued growth in the government, pharmaceutical fields, and the recent opening of HutchMed Medical Supply, a division of Hutchins & Hutchins, expansion is a must,” Rebecca Wiseman, president of Hutchins & Hutchins Inc., said in a statement. “With the experience and capabilities of our current staff, and with our anticipated new hires, our employee base will serve as a strong support for our continued growth.”
The company will receive support form the Virginia Jobs Investment Program, as well as matching funding from Augusta County.
