Second Expansion in Nine Months

Commonwealth Laminating & Coating, Inc. (CLC), a manufacturing company with a strong emphasis on solar-control window films and precision, high-performance coatings, will invest $5.45 million to expand its operation in Henry County. This project will create 60 news jobs, and represents CLC's second major expansion in less than one year. CLC is purchasing the shell building in the Patriot Centre Industrial Park.   The facility will be used immediately as a national distribution center for its high-demand products. The property also secures available space for future manufacturing growth.

CLC combines a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, proprietary and highly technical processes, efficient global distribution capabilities, and a flexible work force to produce a broad range of high-quality products. All CLC products are made at the Henry County facility on the industry's newest, and most advanced manufacturing equipment. Additionally, CLC's technical and responsive team is focused on developing cutting-edge and innovative technology to meet the evolving needs of the industry.

"The new Martinsville site will provide essential warehouse and office space, establish a world-wide master distribution center and create a world-class facility for anticipated future factory expansions," said Steve Phillips, CEO of CLC. "The support we have received from both Martinsville-Henry County and the State of Virginia continues to make Southern Virginia an excellent environment for a growing manufacturing company that competes on the world stage."
