Jobs and Pride Continue to Grow in Martinsville, Virginia

GSI recently announced the expansion of the Martinsville fulfillment facility in Henry County, Virginia. The partnership with Henry County began in 2007 when we acquired the facility.

Both Henry County and GSI are excited about this continued relationship and the bright future it holds as the expansion will bring more than 60 jobs to the community. During an event held at the Henry County Administration Building, Jim Cheng, Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade, expressed his appreciation for GSI’s ongoing support in Henry County and presented Mike Bomba, GSI vice president of fulfillment, with a check for $75,000 from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to support the company’s recruitment and training activities. As a further sign of appreciation, Cheng also gave Bomba a state of Virginia flag to proudly fly outside the new facility.

GSI will handle fulfillment, freight and warehouse management for Hanover Direct from the Martinsville facility.
