January 15, 2018 By    

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Amthor International, a manufacturer of tank trucks for the propane, refined fuel, portable restroom, vacuum and septic industries, will expand its tanker truck manufacturing operation in Pittsylvania County.

The expansion includes the construction of a 115,000-sq.-ft. production facility, creating 70 new jobs over three years and 90 new jobs over the next five years, according to the company. Along with the expansion, the company says it will designate the Pittsylvania facility as its corporate headquarters.

“As our business grows, we are committed to keeping our roots in Virginia and recognizing the success this community has brought for our company, our employees and our family,” says Brian Amthor, executive vice president of Amthor International. “We strive to extend our success to those around us. By doing so, we continue the circle of support for our town, our county and the commonwealth of Virginia. We are excited for the future as our company grows and look forward to the additional jobs and success we can pass on to our employees, dealers and customers.”

The company says it is dedicated to keeping more jobs in America and continuing the family owned and operated business model it has adapted for the last 90 years.

“Our expansion is a direct result of the dedication and hard work of our employees,” Amthor says. “We are proud to recognize their efforts and look to provide more jobs with our growth over the next five years.”

According to the company, the Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission is supporting this project with a grant from the Tobacco Region Opportunity Fund.

“Over more than two decades, Amthor International has built a strong reputation as a quality employer in Pittsylvania County, and this major expansion reinforces the company’s commitment to the region and to the commonwealth,” Todd Haymore, Tobacco Commission member, secretary of commerce and trade, says. “Amthor will continue to provide quality jobs as we enhance our tailored training programs to support this bustling industry.”
