The Hampton Roads Economic Development Alliance is pleased to announce SANJO Corte Fino has selected the City of Virginia Beach as the location for their North American headquarters.
In a press conference yesterday, Governor Terry McAuliffe announced that SANJO will invest $17.5 million to establish its North American headquarters in Virginia Beach, which will create 85 new jobs for the region. Working successfully with Virginia Beach Economic Development and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, the Alliance was able to assist in the location of this family-owned manufacturer, based in Barcelona, Spain. SANJO will supply specialty, fineblanking metal components to STIHL Inc., also headquartered in Virginia Beach, as well as several tier-one automotive suppliers.
