A Switzerland-based company is putting over $57 million into a new production facility in Chesterfield. Condair Group — which specializes in humidification, dehumidification, and evaporative cooling — wants to start production in early 2025.

The company announced its plans for the 400,000-sqft facility on June 18. It will increase the company’s North American presence, which includes sites in Racine, WI and Ottawa, Canada.

In the announcement, VA Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick said the facility will provide more than 180 new jobs. The Virginia Economic Development Partnership, Greater Richmond Partnership, and Chesterfield County collaborated to win the bid for the county.

Condair is one of several international companies to invest in Chesterfield. Construction continues on the $1 billion LEGO factory and Plenty’s indoor vertical farm will open this year.
