Hanover’s Perspective

SanMar Corporation Named as Community Impact Award Winner

SanMar Corporation’s investment in Hanover County, Virginia and Greater Richmond was recognized by Trade & Industry Development magazine as a project that will have a large community impact. Trade & Industry Development publishes the CiCi awards each year to highlight economic development projects with either large amounts of corporate investment or projects that will positively impact the community.

As a recipient in the 18th annual CiCi awards, SanMar Corporation, a supplier of wholesale accessories and apparel, ranks 12th in capital investment among 15 awarded projects from across the United States.

Announced in March of 2023, SanMar’s investment of at least $50 million to establish a 1.1 million-square-foot distribution operation will create up to 1,000 new jobs.  The Virginia Economic Development Partnership  and The Port of Virginia worked with Hanover County to secure the project for Virginia.  The Greater Richmond Partnership submitted SanMar’s distribution operations for this award.
