TemperPack expands to Henrico
TemperPack has moved to a larger manufacturing facility in Henrico County as part of a $10.4 million investment that is expected to create 141 new jobs.
The company manufactures sustainable thermal insulation for the shipment of perishable goods.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership is supporting the expansion through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP). The company is eligible under the program to receive $700 per new job, for a total of up to $98,700.
The company previously manufactured out of a smaller facility in Richmond. The new facility is located in Eastern Henrico near the Richmond International Raceway on Carolina Avenue. The company has been manufacturing out of its new facility for several weeks.
The new facility also will house the production of the company’s new proprietary material, ClimaCell, which is the first certified fully curbside recyclable box liner for perishable shipments.
TemperPack has a research and development facility in the Manchester section of Richmond and a second manufacturing facility in Las Vegas.
