Company Will Invest $1.35 Million To Establish Frst U.S. Manufacturing Facility
October 14, 2020

Danish company Rose Holm, a leading manufacturer of threaded bolts for the food and beverage, wind power, and heat exchange industries in Northern Europe, has announced the company will invest $1.35 million to establish its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Henrico County, Virginia. According to the announcement, the new operation will give the company close proximity to a major customer and further its wind energy efforts.

Established by Erik Rose Holm in 1953, Rose Holm is a privately-owned Danish metal company that specializes in high-quality fastening products with a special focus on supplying the global wind energy sector. Combining decades of know-how, logistics, and ongoing investments in the latest advanced manufacturing technology, Rose Holm’s two Danish production plants now manufacture fastener solutions year-round.

“We believe that the North American market will expand when it comes to the demand for quality solutions within the highly engineered fastener products portfolio,” said Factory Manager Matthew Barnes. “We consider close cooperation with regional partners vital for the growth of Rose Holm, and thus chose Virginia, specifically the Greater Richmond region, for its proximity to a long-time and significant customer that calls Henrico County home. Rose Holm aims to play a significant role as a key component supplier in offshore wind energy generation, and the impressive access to a strong and diverse workforce also made Virginia shine as an excellent place to launch our U.S. operations and service our customers in the wind and plate heat exchanger industries.”

“Virginia is all in for clean energy, and we welcome Rose Holm’s decision to locate its first U.S. operation in our Commonwealth,” said Governor Ralph S. Northam in response to the announcement. “Our Clean Energy Virginia initiative is driving new investment and new jobs in renewable energy, and now it is bringing a new manufacturing facility to Henrico County. We look forward to a strong partnership with Rose Holm as we work to make Virginia a hub for the East Coast offshore wind supply chain and service industries.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VDEP) worked with Henrico County, the Greater Richmond Partnership, and the Port of Virginia to secure the project for the Commonwealth.
