“We are thrilled that Alfa Laval has been a part of our Henrico business community for 30 years and continues to find success here, with a reliable workforce and easy market access,” said Tyrone Nelson. “This new production line allows them to customize orders and ship next day to respond to customer needs.”
“There’s a reason why more than 90 international firms have chosen our county,” explains Anthony J. Romanello, Henrico Economic Development Authority Executive Director. “We’re proud to be a AAA-bonded locality, and we’re committed to the success of companies that operate here. We have the lowest effective machinery and tools tax rate in Central Virginia – $0.30 per $100 of assessed value – which certainly helps firms like Alfa Laval remain competitive.”
“Great businesses are the cornerstone of a great economy,” Romanello adds. “Alfa Laval’s contribution to the Greater Richmond Region’s and Henrico’s economic vitality has meant a stronger, more robust community for our companies and our citizens. We wish them many more years of success.”
