RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Auto parts retailer and distributor AutoZone will establish a new distribution and import facility in Virginia, creating over 350 new jobs. That’s according to a news release issued Friday by Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s office.
The company will invest $185.2 million to establish the 800,000-square-foot facility east of Richmond in New Kent County that will serve as its East Coast distribution hub.
The Memphis, Tennessee-headquartered company’s project is expected to create 352 full-time jobs, at an unspecified pay rate. Former Gov. Ralph Northam approved a $2.5 million grant to assist New Kent County with the project, which is also eligible for other incentives.
