HANOVER COUNTY, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – When the plant where they used to work was slated for closure in 2010, Geoff Baldwin, William Berry and Rick Ganzert decided to get the band back together.
Three years later, their plan has turned into one of the fastest-growing businesses in Richmond.
Baldwin, Berry and Ganzert worked at the 18-acre industrial plant off of Verdon Road in Hanover County when it was operated by Fiber-Lam in the 1990s. Almost 20 years later, Berry Plastics, then-owner of the plant, announced plans to close the facility in January 2010 and put it on the market.
