Manufacturer expanding in Winchester
Continental announced Friday that it would expand its O’Sullivan Films production facility in Winchester, creating 61 new jobs.
Virginia competed against Mexico for the $10.3 million project, according to a news release from the governor.
O’Sullivan Films produces films and artificial leather products for the North American automotive industry. The company was purchased by Continental in 2016.
Gov. Ralph Northam approved a $188,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund for the project. The company also will receive benefits from the Virginia Enterprise Program and the Virginia Jobs Investment Program. It also is eligible for sales and use tax exemptions on manufacturing equipment.
