RICHMOND, VA – Anord Mardix, a leading provider of critical power infrastructure to the global data center industry, will invest $907,500 to establish its second U.S. operation in Henrico County in Greater Richmond, Virginia. The new facility will create more than 50 jobs.
“Just five years ago, the Henrico EDA and the Greater Richmond Partnership successfully recruited Anord from Ireland to start a new U.S. operation in Eastern Henrico; today we celebrate Anord Mardix, a result of the 2018 merger with Mardix, on their continued expansion here,” said Chairman of the Henrico County Board of Supervisors Tyrone Nelson. “Anord Mardix’s success supports Henrico’s growing data center cluster as they supply critical power infrastructure to data centers and mission-critical facilities across the globe. This U.S. headquarters and manufacturing expansion demonstrate how Henrico truly is a great place to grow your business.”
On a marketing mission to Ireland in August 2017, representatives from the Greater Richmond Partnership and Henrico Economic Development Authority met with from Kevin Finegan, CEO of Anord Mardix, as part of their continued interest and support of the company.
With one of the most comprehensive product ranges in the market, Anord Mardix (USA), Inc. manufactures and distributes low- and middle-voltage electrical switchgear and is the vendor of choice to the global data center and cloud computing industries. Products are integrated with Anord Mardix power management systems, allowing for unique service capability and customization.
