Veloxint, a nanocrystalline metals company, plans to move its operations to Ohio County, officials announced Thursday.
During an event in Wheeling attended by Gov. Jim Justice and Rep. David McKinley, Brian Joseph, CEO of Touchstone Research Laboratory and Veloxint, said the move is expected to bring between 200 and 300 new positions to the area over the next four years.
The company’s move to Triadelphia will open positions that will include research engineers, laboratory technicians, metallurgists and machinists.
“Touchstone has had a great deal of success developing and commercializing businesses in West Virginia, and we are excited to have the support of the West Virginia Economic Development Authority and Department of Economic Development,” Joseph said. “We’ve found the people of West Virginia can do anything, and I am very confident Veloxint will be hugely successful here.”
