Dynax America breaks ground on $33 million expansion in Botetourt County
Officials of Dynax America Corp. and Botetourt County broke ground Wednesday on an expansion that will nearly double the size of the company’s facility in EastPark in Botetourt County.
The 144,000-square-foot expansion is part of a $32.6 million project announced in October that will add 75 jobs at an average wage of $40,683.
Dynax America Corp., which located in Botetourt County in 1995, has expanded several times and now has 580 employees, making it the county’s largest private employer. The company manufactures transmission parts.
“Dynax America Corp. has enjoyed great success in Botetourt County, President Tatsuo Kuroda said in a statement. “The support of the state and the county has been important. But our employees have played the most important role in the company’s success.”
Donald Scothorn, chairman of the county’s Board of Supervisors, said the Dynax expansion “is the best endorsement of Botetourt County as a premier business location.”
Branch and Associates will serve as the general contractor for the expansion. The project is expected to be complete by December.
