Laminate Technologies (LamTech), a manufacturer of customized laminated panels and fabricated components, recently announced that they will invest $2 million to establish an operation in Henry County, creating 30 new jobs. The company is a supplier to many area kitchen cabinet manufacturers, and the Martinsville-Henry County location is strategically located to better serve its markets.

"After a careful evaluation of various sites in North Carolina and Virginia and numerous visits to both regions, it became clear that Virginia was the clear choice," said Fred Zoeller (shown above on the right), President & CEO of LamTech. "The people in the Economic Development Department and the overall attitude from those whom we visited within the state department were all great and very helpful. The choice was overwhelming that Martinsville-Henry County and the Commonwealth of Virginia would be the home for our 4th operation."
