Capital One Investing $150M+ in Chesterfield Data Center

Virginia-based Capital One Financial Corporation (NYSE: COF) will invest more than $150 million to establish a new data center in Chesterfield County. This Virginia data center is part of Capital One’s core IT infrastructure that incorporates new technologies to better meet customer needs. Capital One recently completed the acquisitions of ING Direct and HSBC’s US credit card portfolio. The project will create at least 50 new jobs.  Virginia successfully competed against North Carolina and Texas for the project.

Speaking about today’s announcement, Governor McDonnell said, “Virginia has been home to Capital One for more than two decades, and the company continues to grow its foundation. As our 9th largest private sector employer, Capital One is a major corporate partner to the Commonwealth. We are proud that the company will make this tremendous investment to enhance its IT infrastructure and establish a new data center in Chesterfield County.

“Cutting-edge information technology is now a priority for all companies in the domestic and global marketplace,” said Jim Cheng, Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade. “Capital One’s new data center in Chesterfield County will give the company a competitive edge as it continues to expand. Winning this project was a priority, and we are thrilled to gain an investment of this magnitude and 50 new jobs.”

“This project is another great example of how the IT industry helps fuel Virginia's economic engine, and we warmly welcome Capital One to Chesterfield County," said Jim Duffey, Virginia Secretary of Technology.

Founded and headquartered in McLean, Virginia, Capital One is the country's 6th largest bank based on deposits, and with the acquisition of ING Direct, is now the largest direct bank in the country. Capital One employs over 14,000 associates in Virginia. Capital One Bank has approximately 1,000 retail branches, including 88 in the Commonwealth.

“In today’s environment, information technology is a competitive advantage,” said Rob Alexander, Chief Information Officer of Capital One Financial Corporation. “With the new Chesterfield data center as a key element of the company’s simplified and automated infrastructure, we are proud to continue our strong relationship with Virginia and expand our workforce here.”

“Capital One is a national giant in both banking and technology,” said Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors Chairman Daniel Gecker. “The location of their state-of- the-art data center in Chesterfield County will result in a great partnership for years to come. On behalf of the Board of Supervisors, I am pleased to welcome Capital One’s new and continued investment.”

"Capital One is an outstanding company and an outstanding corporate citizen,” said Jay Stegmaier, County Administrator for Chesterfield County. “The opportunities that they provide enhance the economy as well as our entire regional community."

Chesterfield County and the Chesterfield Economic Development Authority worked with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership and the Greater Richmond Partnership to secure the project for Chesterfield. Through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program, the Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide funding and services to support the company’s recruitment, training and retraining activities.  “Dominion Power was a valuable ally and team member during this entire project” said Will Davis, Chesterfield County’s Director of Economic Development. “Their economic development department was critical to our success.”

Congressman Randy Forbes (R-VA) added, “I am excited Capital One has chosen to expand its operations in the Fourth Congressional district and bring more jobs to the people of Virginia. Capital One is the largest bank headquartered in Virginia and we are proud they are making this information technology investment domestically at home in the Commonwealth.”

Capital One was recently recognized by FORTUNE Magazine as one the 100 Best Companies to Work For, and named one of the “Top 50 Organizations for Diversity” by Diversity Business magazine. In 2011, Fortune lauded Capital One as a “Best Company for Leaders,” and Working Mother called Capital One, one of the “100 Best Companies for Working Mothers” as well as “Best Companies for Hourly Workers.”

The expansion will enable the addition of two new lines, a packaging automation system, water waste systems and related plant improvements. The factory expansion will increase the Chesterfield plant’s production capacity by 50 percent and is in response to the continued increased demand for Sabra hummus.

Collegiate School Aquatics Center Opens to Public


Grand Opening Celebration Marks Arrival of World-Class Aquatics Facility in Chesterfield County Virginia

Over four years ago, a group of local residents had a dream to bring world-class swimming and increased water safety to the greater Richmond area and today, that dream became a reality with the official opening of the Greater Richmond Aquatics Partnership’s state-of-the-art facility, the Collegiate School Aquatics Center, with the expectation to host an estimated 400,000+ number of visitors annually.

The Greater Richmond Aquatics Partnership (GRAP) is the unprecedented collaboration of five long-standing and impactful area organizations that include Collegiate School, Poseidon Swimming, Trinity Episcopal School, Richmond Kickers and the Sports Backers.

“Dozens of community leaders, parents and area residents have collaboratively worked together to elevate swimming as a life-long, participatory sport in Richmond and I am pleased to be associated with the many men and women who have worked tirelessly to bring this facility to our community,” said Bobby Ukrop, President of the Greater Richmond Aquatics Partnership. “All of us who worked on this endeavor know the possibilities that it brings to our area – especially serving the needs of the thousands of area children who do not have access to swim lessons and water safety programs.”

Located in Ukrop Park in northern Chesterfield County, the 54,000+ square foot facility boasts three pools including the 50 meter, eight lane Myrtha Pool from the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials in Omaha, a therapy pool with two underwater treadmills and diagnostic video equipment, and a 25-yard, warm water pool for lessons. An expansive 7,000 square foot mezzanine grandstand can hold up to 700 spectators. The fully accessible facility boasts a community room, ample parking and locker facilities. In the future, a 5,000 square foot space is planned for physical therapy and rehabilitation services.

“We are so fortunate to have such a well-constructed center with state-of-the-art equipment, but the heart of the facility is the community-wide focus on water safety, health and fitness, sports tourism and competitive swimming,” said Adam Kennedy, Executive Director, Greater Richmond Aquatics Partnership.  “The Collegiate School Aquatics Center is open to area residents of all ages and will primarily be available for community use with less than 20% of the pool being used for competitive swimming.”

Among the attendees to the ceremony will be a former Virginia resident very familiar with the Myrtha Pool at the new Collegiate School Aquatics Center, Katie Hoff. The former Olympian, who competed in the 2004 and 2008 Summer Olympic Games, swam in the pool at the 2008 Olympic Trials in Omaha before earning bronze medals in Beijing. A world record holder, Hoff now resides and trains in Florida.

The Aquatics Center will provide an economic boost to the region with 40 new jobs now and additional ones once the physical therapy facility opens. With the ability to host significant swim competitions; all sanctioned by Virginia and USA Swimming, GRAP anticipates the facility will bring over $2 million to the area annually through sports tourism. It is estimated that the Collegiate School Aquatics Center cost over $14 million to build and will host its first competitive meet on April 20 with Poseidon’s Fresh Start Invitational. To learn more about the water safety and swim instruction programs available to community, please contact Adam Kennedy at 804-334-7669.

Collegiate School, a member of the Greater Richmond Aquatics Partnership (GRAP), announced today that it will lend its name to the new state-of-the-art aquatics center. It will be officially named the “Collegiate School Aquatics Center”.

Located in Chesterfield County, the aquatics center is the latest addition to Ukrop Park, which is the Richmond Kickers Club’s 46-acre sports complex. The new facility will also be the home of Poseidon Swimming.

“We are thrilled to join with our partners in leading the effort to bring a world-class aquatics center to Richmond and Chesterfield County,” said Collegiate Head of School Keith Evans. “Our investment will provide our swimmers with a home pool while giving us a chance to help GRAP reach its goal of teaching every second-grader to swim by 2020.”

Aquatics Center Features
  • Located in Ukrop Park at the intersection of Chippenham Parkway and Ironbridge Road, Dale District, Chesterfield County
  • 54,000+ square foot facility
  • Three pools
  • 50 meter, eight lane, competition pool (the pool used at the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials in Omaha, NE where some of the country’s best swimmers set many national records)
  • Therapy pool, complete with two underwater treadmills and diagnostic video equipment
  • 25-yard, warm water pool will be available for lessons

We look forward to working with the school to further grow its presence in Chesterfield County.

Collegiate currently holds its swim practices in the evening at St. Catherine’s School. With the opening of the Collegiate School Aquatics Center, the school will shift its practices to afternoons starting next November. “The aquatics center is only 18 minutes from our main campus yet gives us an opportunity to have an expanded presence in the Greater Richmond Metropolitan area. We have terrific partners to work with and have enjoyed the support of Chesterfield County’s leadership from day one,” said Evans.

The Collegiate School Aquatics Center has become a reality due to the collaboration of five of our area’s finest education and sports organizations: Collegiate School, Trinity Episcopal School, Poseidon Swimming, Richmond Kickers Youth Soccer Club, Sports Backers and the many community leaders who formed the Greater Richmond Aquatics Partnership (GRAP).

“This new center will have a catalytic impact by providing a community-wide focus on swimming and water safety,” said Bobby Ukrop, Chairman of the Board, Greater Richmond Aquatics Partnership.

Honeywell to Invest $27.5 million in Chesterfield County

Company will create 50 new jobs.

Governor Bob McDonnell announced today that Honeywell, a Fortune 100 manufacturing and technology company, will invest $27.5 million to add to its Advanced Fibers and Composites (AF&C) operation in Chesterfield County. AF&C manufactures the lightest, strongest polyethylene fiber available anywhere in the world, which is used for ballistic protection with the U.S. military and law enforcement agencies and in certain industrial applications. The project will create 50 new jobs. Virginia successfully competed against North Carolina and South Carolina.

Speaking about today’s announcement, Governor McDonnell said, "As home to 17 facilities employing approximately 1,800 Virginians, the Commonwealth values Honeywell as a major corporate partner. An investment of this magnitude to manufacture life-saving technology at its operation in Chesterfield County is significant for the region and for Virginia. Honeywell’s AF&C unit supplies the materials that helps keep U.S. soldiers and law enforcement personnel safe by enabling stronger, lighter bullet resistant vests and other armor, and we appreciate the company’s commitment to our country and continued investment in the Commonwealth."

"Honeywell began operations in Virginia as early as 1928, and it is gratifying that the company continues to thrive more than 80 years later," said Jim Cheng, Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade. "Approximately 300 are employed by Honeywell in Chesterfield County, and we are pleased that with this investment 50 new jobs will be added."

Honeywell ballistic materials have been trusted to protect military and police forces around the world for more than two decades. They are used in a variety of applications where lightweight strength is critical, including bullet-resistant vests, breast plates, helmets, combat vehicles and military aircraft. The fiber is also used in a wide variety of industrial and recreational applications, including rope and lifting slings, mooring lines, fishing line, sail cloth and security netting.

"Honeywell’s Advanced Fibers and Composites business, based in Chesterfield County, is already a premier supplier of life-saving materials for bullet-resistant vests and helmets as well as for industrial applications. This investment will allow us to better serve our customers with next-generation materials," said Andreas Kramvis, President and CEO of Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies. "We are grateful for the support of the Commonwealth of Virginia and Chesterfield County, and look forward to continuing our longstanding partnership."

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Chesterfield County, the Greater Richmond Partnership and Virginia’s Gateway Region to secure the project for Virginia. Governor McDonnell approved a $300,000 performance-based grant from the Virginia Investment Partnership (VIP) program, an incentive available to existing Virginia companies. Through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program, the Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide funding and services to support the company’s recruitment and training activities.

"We are so pleased when one of our long-standing existing businesses expands," said Dan Gecker, Chairman of the Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors. "It demonstrates that they have found Chesterfield County to be a profitable business environment, and we sincerely appreciate their commitment to Chesterfield County and look forward to their continued growth. Honeywell is producing quality leading edge products and it is especially rewarding that their technology is saving lives. We congratulate Honeywell on their success."

- Two-year program provides resources to support international business -

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) today announced the acceptance of two Central Virginia companies into its two-year Virginia Leaders in Export Trade (VALET) program. Launched in January 2002, the program assists exporters in the Commonwealth that have firmly established domestic operations and are committed to international exporting as an expansion strategy.

The new companies accepted into the program include Hermle North America of Amherst County and Integrated Global Services of Chesterfield County.

Currently, the VALET program has 50 companies as participants. New participants in the program have access to $15,000 in reimbursement funds from the Commonwealth.

Because of the program’s proven success and because jobs are created when Virginia companies sell more into global markets, it is important that we continue to assist Virginia companies through the program. We are happy to welcome these companies to VALET and look forward to working with them over the course of the next two years.”
