RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Graphic art company Green Applications is planning to open a facility in Orange County, creating more than 320 jobs.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Friday that the company plans to invest $9.75 million to establish its first Virginia operation in Gordonsville.

Officials say the company will design, screen print, produce and distribute graphic art on heat transfers and apparel.

Green Applications is a division of Green Distribution, one of the largest printers and distributors of textile merchandise and heat applied graphics on the East Coast. It was founded in 2009 in Secaucus, N.J.

McAuliffe approved a $540,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund for the project.
