Former Maryland manufacturer Countertop Solutions is purchasing equipment and relocating to its new facility at Falling Waters Industrial Park in Martinsburg.
Countertop Solutions fabricates and installs natural stone, quartz and solid surface countertops for commercial and residential customers.
Countertop Solutions broke ground for its new manufacturing plant in November 2015. The company will consolidate its showroom, sales and manufacturing facilities from Maryland to the three-acre site in Berkeley County. The company will transfer 18 jobs from Maryland and expects to create five new positions in West Virginia.
The manufacturer’s equipment purchase and relocation is being aided by an investment of $207,000, funded by Natural Capital Investment Fund through the West Virginia Capital Access Program, known as WVCAP. The Natural Capital Investment Fund finances and advises small to mid-sized enterprises across a nine-state region.
The West Virginia Jobs Investment Trust administers the federally funded WVCAP program to help the state’s small business get the credit they need to grow. The West Virginia Jobs Investment Trust is the state’s venture capital fund created to develop the state’s economy by making investmentfunds available to eligible businesses.
