Canon Virginia, Inc.
In January 2015, Governor Terry McAuliffe jointly announced with Canon plans to invest another $100 million to add more printer cartridge production lines and increase its toner manufacturing operation to enable the company to meet increased demand for its print cartridge line. In addition to Canon’s financial investment, 60 new positions will be created as part of the expansion project. Newport News is Canon’s U.S. manufacturing headquarters, serving as the manufacturing, engineering, recycling and technical support center for all the Americas. This builds upon a $623.5 million announced expansion in 2008 and another $27 million announcement in 2013.
