Hubbell Lighting to add 100 jobs in Christiansburg project
Hubbell Lighting will invest more than $6 million to expand and consolidate its manufacturing and assembly operations in Christiansburg.
The project is expected to create 100 new jobs.
Hubbell, based in Greenville, S.C., is one of the largest lighting fixture manufacturers in North America. The company provides a full range of indoor and outdoor lighting products serving the commercial, industrial, and residential markets.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe approved a $100,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to assist Montgomery County with the project. The company will receive benefits from the Port of Virginia Economic and Infrastructure Development Zone Grant Program and will also be eligible for Sales and Use Tax exemptions on manufacturing equipment.
Additional funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
