Will Galax Virginia Printing Company Break Tobacco Commission Losing Streak?

Compiled by Lewis Loflin

The taxpayers are again handing out big money with promises of more jobs. The Tobacco Commission has a very poor record on these deals, let's hope this one works out. I will let the record stand as we monitor this issue. I wish Carolina Profile Design the best.

RICHMOND 'Carolina Profile Design Corp., a lithographic commercial printing company, will invest $3 million to expand in Grayson County, creating 55 jobs. The company will add a metal machining process to its existing operations. Virginia successfully competed with Illinois, North Carolina and Pennsylvania for the project.

"Carolina Profile Design has been a corporate staple in Grayson County since 1990,' Governor Kaine said. "This expansion will enable the company to manufacture high-end metal parts for machinery and after-market products that are in demand around the world. In a region that has been hit by economic the downturn and offers an available workforce, 55 new jobs are significant.'

Carolina Profiles began in 1990 as a machine shop with considerable capability in designing plastic recycling equipment. The company now operates both a sophisticated machine design and production shop and some specialized commercial printing.

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Grayson County and Virginia's aCorridor to secure the project for Virginia. Governor Kaine approved a $100,000 grant from the Governor's Opportunity Fund to assist Grayson County with the project. The Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission approved $150,000 in Tobacco Region Opportunity Funds for the project. The Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide training assistance through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
