MAJOR PROJECT BREAKS GROUND IN DINWIDDIE COUNTY
Will Bring 145 New Jobs
Richmond, VA – ALDI broke ground today on their new regional headquarters and distribution center in Dinwiddie County. The 500,000 square foot facility will result in 145 new jobs and capital investment of $57 million dollars.
The Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission awarded a $680,000 Tobacco Region Opportunity Fund grant for the project. The project builds on the Tobacco Commission’s objective of developing a diverse economy in Southern and Southwest Virginia by attracting successful companies to the region, such as ALDI, and assisting others in expanding their current operations.
Tobacco Commission Chairman, Delegate Terry Kilgore said, “This is an important project for Dinwiddie County and Southern Virginia as well as a great investment for the Tobacco Commission. Job creation is one of our primary goals and this project certainly delivers.”
Harrison Moody, Chairman of the Dinwiddie County Board of Supervisors added, “This project has been a long time in the making and we are happy to be breaking ground. ALDI has a strong reputation for providing quality employment opportunities and we welcome them to our community.”
ALDI currently operates over 1,500 stores in the U.S. with plans to expand to nearly 2,000 stores and employs over 24,000 people while continuing to grow.
