Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced today, May 3, 2023 that Delta Star, Inc., the largest, American-owned medium transformer manufacturer in the United States and the premier manufacturer of mobile transformers in North America, will invest $30.2 million to expand its manufacturing and headquarters operation in the City of Lynchburg, where it has been located for 60+ years,  The expansion will add nearly 100,000 square feet of manufacturing and corporate space and about 150 new jobs.

“Manufacturing is a major economic driver across the Commonwealth, and we are proud that this industry leader’s products are not only ‘Made in America’, they are also ‘Made in Virginia’. We congratulate Delta Star on decades of success in the Commonwealth,“Youngkin added.

Located at 3550 Mayflower Drive, in Lynchburg, the expansion involves 80,000 square feet of new additional manufacturing space to support Delta Star’s mobile and power transformer operations to meet the increased demand of this growing and vital sector of the economy. The project also includes a 14,000-square-foot corporate building to consolidate headquarters and office function requirements. Virginia successfully competed with California and Pennsylvania for the project, which will create 149 new jobs.

“Generations of Virginia families have benefitted from Delta Star’s long-term presence in the City of Lynchburg, and we are thrilled that tradition will continue with this major expansion,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “As U.S. manufacturing continues its resurgence, industry-leading companies choose the Commonwealth for its strategic location, business-friendly environment, and robust talent pipeline. We encourage interested applicants to visit and apply for one of the new, high-quality jobs available. ”

“We believe Delta Star’s core values give us the power to build a strong business, culture, and way of life. These values have been a guide for our behavior, creating an environment that places the needs of those we serve, as well as multiple generations of family members who have shared this road with us, at the center of all that we do,” said Jason Greene, Delta Star CEO.

Greene added, “The Commonwealth of Virginia offers a unique set of advantages such as transportation access, business-friendly attitude at both state and local levels, along with exceptionally well-executed and supported workforce development and recruitment programs.
