Genesis Products Inc. Expanding into Virginia

It’s just the kind of news people in Charlotte County, Va., hoped to hear: 150 new jobs are  coming to Keysville, a city of 1,000 located 50 miles west of Richmond.

RV supplier Genesis Products Inc. will invest $2.5 million to expand the former Appomattox River Manufacturing operation in Charlotte County, according to a press release from Gov. Bob McDonnell’s office.

The project will save 52 jobs and create 150 new jobs. The Elkhart, Ind.-based company manufactures doors, cabinet parts, moldings and wood panels for pre-fabricated homes and recreational vehicles. It also makes products for the kitchen cabinet and furniture manufacturing industry.

Virginia successfully competed against Georgia and Mississippi for the project.
