ALDI, Batavia, Ill., announced plans to invest $57 million to establish a division headquarters and 500,000-square-foot distribution facility in Dinwiddie County, Va. The new site will create 145 new jobs.

“We’re proud to locate our new division headquarters and distribution center in business-friendly Virginia. The access to qualified and capable employees and transportation options first attracted us to this location, but it was the integrity and positive attitude of the Dinwiddie County leaders that truly won us over,” says Jason Hart, chief executive officer. “Today, we have 32 ALDI stores in Virginia, and we plan to open up to 60 additional locations across the Commonwealth over the next five years, helping more people save time and money by offering them premium quality groceries at everyday low prices in easy-to-shop stores.”
