Berryville Graphics, a German-owned company, plans to add 86 new jobs to their Clarke County facility. Governor McDonnell announced the new jobs after meeting with the CEO of Bertelsmann AG - a European media company.
Berryville Graphics will be the location of the consolidation of book printing operations for Bertelsmann. The company will institute $10.6 million dollars in renovations to the Berryville, VA, property. The Berryville Graphics facility was originally the Double Day Bookbinding operation.
Under the skillful leadership of Governor McDonnell, Virginia has started special programs to attract businesses to Virginia. The county and state both offered matching grants to help fund the company's recruitment, training and retraining activities.
Berryville Graphics produces approximately 120 million books each year in the Clarke County plant. The facility has been a great asset to the local economy for many years. The new jobs will be welcomed in a recovering economy. The mayor of Berryville also voiced his enthusiasm for the changes at Berryville Graphics. The company has been a great community partner for more than 25 years.
