RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Gov. Northam announced Vytal Studios will be establishing its corporate headquarters in Richmond, which will bring 155 jobs to the city.

Vytal Studios, created in 2018, is a technology-based education and training content developer and producer.

The company will be relocating its headquarters from Austin, Texas to Richmond costing $6.8 million.

The company will renovate the facility at 1802 Semmes Avenue to include studio space for filming content and office space for development and post-production functions.

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the City of Richmond and the Greater Richmond Partnership to secure the project for Virginia.

Governor Northam approved a $500,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist the City of Richmond with the project.

Virginia successfully competed with Florida and North Carolina for the project.
