GILES COUNTY, Va. - A company is creating dozens of jobs in Giles County, Governor Terry McAuliffe announced Friday morning.

Interstate Group is investing $4.1 million to make its location in Glen Lyn its East Coast headquarters. It's a move that will create 83 new jobs, according to the company. 

The manufacturing facility is not hiring yet, but will soon. 

Michael Snow, CEO, says the average pay is $18 to $20 an hour with benefits. 

Giles County beat North Carolina for the spot. 

The location was formerly GE/Fairchild, which eliminated 60 jobs when it closed in 2016. 

The plan is to open in five to six months after some renovations.
