MW Manufacturers Inc. is investing $4.7 million to expand in Virginia.
The window and door manufacturer will expand extrusion capacity through its Lineal Technologies division, according to a news release from Gov. Mark Warner's office.
MW officials were unable to comment before deadline.
The expansion to an existing, 100,000-square-foot site in Rocky Mount, Va., means the addition of 60 employees during the next 30 months. Its original facility in Roanoke was located on a flood plain and the company was unable to find a suitable existing facility for expansion, according to the governor's office.
MW received several incentives from Virginia, which competed against New Jersey for the project. MW received a $150,000 grant from the Governor's Opportunity Fund and $150,000 from the Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission. The latter incentive was in the form of Tobacco Region Opportunity Funds.
MW has been in business since 1939. It operates fabrication and distribution facilities in Hammonton, N.J., and Tupelo, Miss. According to Plastics News archives, the Roanoke site is its only extrusion facility. In 1999, the company acquired the New Jersey site through a merger with Patriot Manufacturing, which was MW's first foray into the replacement window market.
