ESS Technologies, a packaging line design and equipment manufacturer, has declared a $1.6m investment to expand its operations in Montgomery County, Virginia, US.  

The project is intended to scale up capacity and streamline operations by consolidating the company’s existing facilities in Giles and Blacksburg into this larger Montgomery County site.  

The new 40,000ft² facility is set to increase the company’s production capacity and research and development (R&D) capabilities. 

According to the company, this movie will improve customer service in industries such as health and beauty, pharmaceuticals, and nutraceuticals. 

ESS Technologies general manager Dan Schmidt said: “This expansion underscores the collaborative partnership between ESS and the community including Virginia Tech, Radford College, and New River College. We are proud to continue growing our team with engineering and technical talent here in Montgomery County.” 

The expansion project is supported by the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, Montgomery County Economic Development, and Onward New River Valley.
