Firm Announces $65.3 Million Investment In New Printing Facility
October 29, 2019

Cartograf, a leading provider of packaging solutions across a wide range of industrial sectors, has announced that the firm will invest $65.3 million to establish its first folding and micro-corrugated package printing facility in the United States. The 100-acre site will be located in the Meadowville Technology Park in Chesterfield County.

Based in Mexico City, Cartograf provides packaging solutions to customers in over 40 industrial sectors worldwide, including food and beverage, personal hygiene, confectionary, and home products. Since its founding in 1986, the company has worked to remain number one in folding and micro-corrugated printed packaging through the use of top-tier applied technology and modern facilities with high production capacity. Cartograf will establish its first folding and package printing facility in the United States to meet growing demand for its products in the northeast and Canadian markets.

“For the past 30 years, Cartograf has partnered with worldwide brands across a diverse group of industries and our products are part of people’s everyday lives through a large array of packaging solutions,” said President of Cartograf Juan Jose Páramo Riestra. “Cartograf’s main facilities are located in Aguascalientes, Mexico, and as a result of constant organic growth and a substantial market share increase, the company is proud to announce its first overseas expansion, consisting of a new manufacturing facility located in the Meadowville Technology Park in Chesterfield, Virginia. This would not have been possible without the cooperation and support from Chesterfield County, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and The Keith Corporation. Cartograf looks forward to this new venture and contributing to the growth of the surrounding community.”

“Securing Cartograf’s first operation in the United States is a significant win for Virginia and is a strong testament to the outstanding global connectivity that we offer manufacturers of all sizes,” said Governor Northam in response to the announcement. “By locating in the greater Richmond region, Cartograf will have access to major markets and the Port of Virginia, which will support the company’s continued growth for years to come. We thank the company for choosing to locate in Chesterfield County, and we are honored to welcome Cartograf to our Commonwealth.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Chesterfield County, the Port of Virginia, and Greater Richmond Partnership to secure the project for Virginia. Governor Northam approved a $750,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Chesterfield County with the project. Cartograf is also eligible to receive benefits from the Port of Virginia Economic and Infrastructure Development Zone Grant Program. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the state-funded Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
