Perrone Robotics Powers Innovation in Virginia

Emerging as a leading innovator in the autonomous vehicles industry, Perrone Robotics has continued to grow its Virginia operation despite competition from other states. A 2017 expansion of its research and development operation prompted the company to consider California, Michigan, and Pennsylvania for the project, with Virginia ultimately standing out due to its industry advantages, high-tech talent, and renowned livability. VEDP supported the project’s creation of 127 new jobs through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP).

VJIP has been tremendously impactful in helping us train and develop a whole new generational of operators, technicians, and brewers of the world’s greatest beers! VJIP assisted us in a very pivotal time in the history of our brewery. As a great deal of our team members transition into retirement, we are preparing a new generation to carry the mantle.
