Fairfax County, Virginia – Gov. Terry McAuliffe today announced that Nomadic Display, a worldwide leader in trade show displays, will create 30 new jobs and invested $940,000 in connection with its headquarters relocation within Fairfax County.

“Fairfax County is truly an exemplary case study on how to keep jobs here in the state. The people are the key, and we rely on their knowledge and experience to provide superior products and customer service. We chose to expand here in Virginia because the highly-skilled workforce provides limitless opportunities for growth and success.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership is supporting Nomadic Display’s job creation and retraining activities through the state-funded Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
