The $16.4 million expansion will create more than 100 new jobs for the greater Richmond area. As part of its “Made in America” commitment, Weidmüller will increase its engineering and production footprint in the U.S. by 24,000 sq ft, allowing the company to engineer and manufacture products closer to the customer.

Innovative electrical connectivity and software-driven automation continues to transform industrial production and smart manufacturing across the United States, including new clean energy industries that rely on increasingly sophisticated products and solutions. Drawing on more than 170 years in manufacturing, electrical connectivity and first-to-market innovation solutions like SNAP IN and u-remote, Weidmüller is positioned to be a leading supplier for Industry 4.0 and the future of engineering and manufacturing, right here in the U.S.

“Weidmüller is known as a pioneer of smart industrial connectivity and this pioneering spirit continues to blossom in Richmond,” said Bernd Schröder, President Weidmüller USA. “We look forward to manufacturing automation solutions with local engineering and production talent and together, shape the way to digitalization.”

The new building features solar panels generating 392,000 Kwh annually, high efficiency HVAC, recycled materials, and EV charging units (AC Smart).

Support for Weidmüller’s job creation will be provided through the Virginia Talent Accelerator Program, a workforce initiative created by VEDP in collaboration with the Virginia Community College System and other higher education partners, with funding support from the Governor’s administration and the Virginia General Assembly.
