Business in brief


The Greater Richmond Partnership has announced that Kels USA Corporation has chosen Henrico County for the location of its expansion to the United States. The electrical contact material company has started business with a small sales office with plans to expand to manufacturing their products locally in the next 2-4 years. The Partnership first met with Kels during a marketing mission to Hannover Messe, the world’s largest industrial trade fair. Subsequent meetings and visits followed, including three visits to the Richmond Region and three to the Kels headquarters in Brazil during marketing missions. Before choosing Henrico, the company considered locations in Illinois, North Carolina, Massachusetts and Georgia. Kels cited their main reason to expand to the U.S. is for market entry and proximity to the current customers to provide better service. Kels, founded in 1976, manufactures metal-based products for the electro-electronics, automotive and appliance industries. Kels also plays a great role in refrigeration, tooling and metallurgical industries supplying brazing alloys. By 2019, the company estimates that it will be successful enough to expand its facility to a 100-person manufacturing center. > Read more.
