Berryville Graphics Sinks $10.6M into Project
BERRYVILLE, VA—Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell announced that Berryville Graphics (BVG), an affiliate of Bertelsmann AG, will invest $10.6 million to consolidate its book printing operations at its manufacturing facility and headquarters here. The project will create 84 new jobs and save 81 jobs for Virginia. Virginia successfully competed against Kentucky for the project.
BVG's offerings range from digital composition and print-on-demand to full prepress and printing capabilities. It manufactures a wide range of hardcover and softcover book products, cranking out nearly 120 million books annually at its manufacturing facility here.
“The book industry has faced many challenges over recent years, forcing us to review existing capacity and, ultimately, reduce the number of physical locations,” said Dave Liess, president and CEO of Berryville Graphics and Coral Graphic Services. “While this was not an easy decision, the excitement and partnership shown by both the State of Virginia and Clarke County has reinforced our belief that Berryville is the right place to invest.”
