The Clay Florida EDC would like to extend our congratulations to Vac-Con Inc.  for its recent announcement to expand its current plant and operations.

Vac-Con Inc., located in Green Cove Springs, FL is a manufacturer of truck-mounted vacuum equipment and is the county's 2nd largest private employer. The expansion project will include a $10 million dollar capital investment and construction on a 65,000-sq-ft plant expansion that will add to its existing 100,000 square foot space. The company also plans to add about 30 jobs to a 300-person workforce. The jobs will have an above average wage for Clay County and would include skilled labor, welders, electricians, painters and engineers. On June 5, 2015 a ground blasting ceremony was held to commemorate the announcement, and was attended by local government officials and business leaders.

In it's over 30 year history in Clay County, Vac-Con has directed approximately 90% of the $1.5 billions of generated revenue back into the local economy. The decision to expand their facilities in Clay County illustrates the company's commitment to the region. In an interview with the Jacksonville Business Journal, Tom Jody who serves as the company's marketing manager stated “It's a hard-to-beat location. There's a lot of great opportunities there. Of course the weather, but Jaxport, logistics, lots of different things that are beneficial to manufacturing. And the availability of a skilled workforce.”

Congratulations Vac-Con Inc. on your continued success!
