RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A fiber-optic cable manufacturer is planning to expand its Culpeper operations, creating 30 jobs.
Gov. Bob McDonnell said Wednesday that TE Connectivity Ltd. will invest more than $15 million in the expansion.
The TE Connectivity plant designs and manufactures undersea fiber optic telecommunication cables, electro-optical-mechanical cables and steel wire.
The company has had operations in Culpeper since the 1930s. TE Connectivity has nearly 90,000 employees in more than 50 countries.
McDonnell approved a $100,000 grant from the Governor's Opportunity Fund for the project.
