Shandong Tranlin Paper Co. Establishes First U.S. Manufacturing Operation in Virginia


Company Announces $2 Billion Investment and 2,000 New Jobs


Shandong Tranlin Paper Co. announced plans to invest $2 billion and create 2,000 new jobs by 2020 to establish its first U.S. pulp and paper manufacturing operation, Tranlin Inc., in Chesterfield County, Va. This represents the largest Chinese economic development project in Virginia’s history and the largest Chinese greenfield economic development project in the U.S.

The project moved quickly over 11 months, which required teamwork across administrations, agencies and corporate partners. In the summer of 2013, Tranlin Chairman and CEO Jerry Peng reached out to then-Secretary of Commerce and Trade Jim Cheng, as both served on the board of UVA’s Darden School of Business. Although the company was initially looking at California, Secretary Cheng contacted VEDP to seize the opportunity and put together a team to market Virginia’s world-class business environment to the company.
