Clarke Precision Machine, Inc. Announces Expansion in Wythe County, VA

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam has announced that Clarke Precision Machine, Inc., a full-service manufacturer of precision metal and non-metal tooling, will invest $750,000 to purchase new machinery and expand its manufacturing facility in Wythe County. The project will create 12 new jobs and position the company to handle future potential contracts in automotive, construction materials, industrial mixing and other industries.

"Clarke Precision Machine is a valued contributor to our resurging manufacturing industry and continues to build on a long legacy of success in Wythe County," said Governor Northam. "Supporting the expansion of Virginia's existing businesses and helping them meet critical workforce needs is key to building strong regional economies, and that is why we will continue to assist growing companies in developing world-class talent. We thank Clarke Precision Machine for reinvesting in its operation, and look forward to the company's continued growth in our Commonwealth."

The company was founded in 1964 in Wytheville, VA, as Williams Manufacturing. Clarke Precision Machine acquired the company in 2015 and continued to operate as an engineered solution provider to consumers requiring custom machined products. Clarke Precision Machine is a build-to-order welding, machining and fabrication shop supporting companies throughout southwest Virginia and the surrounding regions.

"Clarke Precision Machine is happy to continue to invest in our hometown of Wytheville," said Matthew Clarke, President of Clarke Precision Machine. "Wythe County is one of the best places to operate a business, in my experience. Our manufacturing community is collaborative, the employees are loyal, and there's a genuine spirit of support. There's been a great rebound in manufacturing after several years of stagnation, and our business has been on a significant growth curve since 2015. We aim to meet the needs of our customers while exceeding expectations for quality and customer service. Our experience in working with economic development authorities, including VEDP and the Joint IDA of Wythe County, has been quite positive. We appreciate the pro-business environment fostered by the Wythe County Board of Supervisors and the Wytheville Town Council, as well."
