ESKA USA, a renowned 140-year-old manufacturer based in the Netherlands, is thrilled to announce its expansion in Suffolk, Virginia. Seeking to expand its operations, ESKA USA will be moving existing machinery used to manufacture solid board used in packaging for cosmetics, perfume, other luxury goods, as well as hardcover books and game boards and anticipates a significant investment in machinery upon settling in Suffolk.

ESKA USA’s decision to relocate to Suffolk comes with a commitment to job creation and economic growth in the region. The company plans to start with the creation of 39 full-time jobs and expects to expand its workforce significantly in the very near future.

In anticipation of this move, Mayor Michael Duman expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “ESKA USA’s decision to relocate its operations to Suffolk is a testament to our city’s appeal as a destination for global businesses. We welcome ESKA USA and are excited about the economic opportunities and job prospects this move brings to our community.”

“ESKA USA’s move to Suffolk’s Coastal Logistics Center is representative of how The Port of Virginia’s $1.4 billion capital plan is serving as a catalyst for companies to accelerate their business operations within our region,” said Stephen A. Edwards, CEO and executive director of the Virginia Port Authority. “The growing availability of Class-A industrial space in our market is helping the region win companies, good jobs and encouraging the retention and expansion of existing companies like ESKA USA that require access to a modern, growing global logistics hub. The result is more business for the port and more jobs and economic investment for Virginia. We look forward to continuing our partnership with ESKA USA while helping it continue to leverage and utilize America’s most modern gateway.”

The machinery relocation and additional investment signify ESKA USA’s commitment to not only expanding its production capabilities but also contributing to the economic development of Suffolk. The move underscores the city’s attractiveness to international companies seeking growth opportunities and a supportive business environment.
