VPL is growing rapidly, resulting in a higher number of new employees than was initially projected. The company needed to expand its headquarters quickly to meet the rising demand from customers.
VPL is investing more than $2.5 million to expand its headquarters in Columbus and invest in talent. Talent has been a large asset to VLP’s operations since 2011 when it was founded, and it plans to hire from Ohio’s highly skilled workforce as it grows.
Ohio’s education institutions use a mix of classroom and hands-on training, in addition to innovation labs, in order to create well-rounded employees. Additionally, a mix of education, healthcare, technology and logistics strengths make Ohio an ideal location for companies like VPL.
Ohio has excellent location and infrastructure assets, including the fourth largest interstate system in the U.S., and companies in Ohio can access 60 percent of the U.S. and Canadian populations within a one-day’s drive.
“We’re excited to announce this important step forward for our growing operations. Since launching, VPL has benefited from the rich pool of talent in the Columbus Region and we’re looking forward to furthering our success with this latest expansion.”
