RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is announcing 15 new jobs in Augusta County made possible in part by state aid.

The governor said Monday that Hutchins & Hutchins, a company that assembles and distributes cleanroom supplies, is planning to invest $224,000 to expand a distribution facility.

The state will provide an undisclosed amount of aid through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program. Augusta County will match the state funds.

Virginia’s distribution industry employs nearly 80,000.
