Jan. 4, 2017 – iMPREG Group, a provider of liner systems for trenchless pipe rehabilitation, will open a warehouse facility in Henrico County, Va. A second phase, which would include manufacturing, is expected to increase the workforce to 60 employees with a $5.4-million expansion.
“We are much closer to our North American customers right now and would provide best services and expertise to meet the expectations of our clients as a supplier for innovative lining solutions used for sewerage infrastructure like conduits and pipes,” said Dr. Jürgen Alexander, global new business development director, who also described the location as an “excellent place” to serve customers from Canada and U.S.
“We are pleased that iMPREG selected Henrico County for its first U.S. distribution site,” added Tyrone E. Nelson, chairman of the Henrico County board of supervisors. “Their location at the Byrd Corporate Park near the Richmond International Airport will allow them to provide their products expeditiously to their new customers on the East Coast and throughout the United States. We wish them great success, and we welcome them to the international corporate community in Henrico.”
This will be the fifth location for the firm, with three facilities in Germany and one in China.
