JTI Leaf Services expanding in Danville

The 110,000-square-foot expansion will accommodate additional storage for unprocessed and processed tobacco.

The expansion is a way to be more efficient and secure and retain the 300 full-time and seasonal jobs that already exist at JTI, Steve Daniels, president and CEO of the Danville plant, said.

The company has invested $70 million in the Dan River Region since 2009, Gooden said.
