CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A German-based chemical company will invest $15 million to create a business and innovation center in Chesterfield.
Evonik Industries says the move will create 50 jobs in the county over the next five years and renovate and refurbish a vacant building at the Chesterfield Airport Industrial Park.
Virginia won the bid over Indiana and New Jersey, Governor Terry McAuliffe said in a Thursday morning press conference. The Governor's Opportunity Fund provided a $500,000 check to the company as part of the development agreement.
