Weidmüller Group will invest $16.4 million to expand its existing operation in Richmond, Virginia. The U.S. expansion cements the company’s commitment to bring engineering and manufacturing closer to North American partners and customers. As part of its ‘Made in America’ commitment, Weidmüller will increase its engineering and production footprint in the U.S. by 24,000 square feet, allowing the company to engineer and manufacture products to meet growing North American customer demand and strengthen its supply chain. Virginia successfully competed with other states for the project, which will create more than 100 new jobs. Founded in 1850, the Weidmüller Group has operated in Chesterfield County, Virginia, for more than 50 years.
