Press Glass expansion in Henry County to create 335 new jobs

HENRY COUNTY, VA – Governor Glenn Youngkin visited Henry County Wednesday afternoon to announce that Press Glass Inc. will invest $155.2 million to expand at the Commonwealth Crossing Business Centre.

The company will construct a 360,000-square-foot addition to its existing facility to expand its U.S. presence and manufacture glass for the commercial construction industry.

The project will create 335 new jobs.

“With this expansion, Press Glass will make the largest single capital investment by a business in Henry County’s history,” said Governor Glenn Youngkin. “The addition of 335 new jobs, more than doubling the company’s head count, helps this region continue its economic rebound and demonstrates the resurgence of manufacturing that is happening across the Commonwealth.”

Headquartered in Konopiska, Poland, Press Glass was founded in 1991 and has 15 factories in Europe and the U.S.

“Our clients have trusted us and recognized the high quality of Press Glass products, so the expansion of the factory in Ridgeway is a natural step to increase the availability of our offerings and strengthen our position in the American market,” said Maciej Migalski, President, Press Glass Inc. “After the expansion, the Ridgeway plant will be one of the largest and most automated facilities processing architectural glass in the USA. At the same time, we will create new, valuable job opportunities.We express our gratitude to the local leadership for their invaluable support.”

As the largest independent flat glass processing operation in Europe, the company processes glass for fabricators of windows and doors, facades and interior glass constructions.

The company opened its Henry County facility in 2020 and employs more than 300 individuals. The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the Martinsville-Henry County Economic Development Corporation to secure the project for Virginia.

Governor Youngkin approved a $2 million grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Henry County with the project.

Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
