Congressman Bob Goodlatte released the following statement welcoming the announcement today that Daikin McQuay will invest $9.2 million to expand its operations in Augusta County, adding 50 new jobs:
"Today's announcement is welcome news for the Commonwealth," said Congressman Goodlatte. "In a time where we often only hear of bad news on the job front, I am encouraged by McQuay's continued investment and growth in the Sixth District. Not only do manufacturers like McQuay play an important role in our economy nationally, they also drive the economy locally. We must ensure that we are a nation where manufacturing will continue to thrive. I applaud the efforts of McQuay to expand in Verona and commend Augusta County officials for their work to ensure the expansion happened. I look forward to visiting the new facility."
