Ross Industries Inc., manufacturer of commercial food production machinery, will invest $7.5 million to enlarge its current facility in Fauquier County, VA.

The company plans to construct a new 24,000-sq.-ft building adjacent to its existing building in order to increase product assembly capacity. Ross also will invest in next-generation robotic fabrication and manufacturing technologies. The new expansion will create 24 new jobs. 

“We are excited to expand our facility, a testament to our longstanding commitment to Fauquier County, our home for over five decades,” said Jamie Usrey, president and CEO of Ross Industries. 

“We feel deeply rooted in this community. We have employees who have been dedicated to Ross for more than 45 years, including multiple generations of families who made Ross their career. This expansion, coupled with our partnership with several local technical education organizations for our fast-track machinist program, leadership, and management programs exemplify our ongoing promise to the people and the future of Fauquier County," Usrey added.

Governor Glenn Youngkin added, “Ross Industries’ decision to reinvest in Fauquier County secures its important community presence for another 50 years to come and demonstrates how Virginia is capturing growth in the rebounding manufacturing sector. Robotic technology is the future of the industry, and I’m proud that the Commonwealth is part of that trajectory.”
