$7 million investment by subsidiary BGF
In early 2019, the company will construct a 2,320 m² purpose-built facility at Cyber Park, Danville. The move will create 65 new positions. BGF Industries currently employs over 750 people across 6 sites.
The new facility will work collaboratively with the France-based R&D center to build on the 200 patents already held by Porcher, and support global customers and projects. The move follows BGF Industries’ acquisition of a 13,375 m² manufacturing plant in Virginia last year, and reinforces Porcher Industries’ commitment to the US market.
