DANVILLE, Va. (AP) - A tool manufacturing company owned by a Japanese conglomerate is opening a new operation in Danville and Pittsylvania County that will create 35 new jobs.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s office announced Thursday that KYOCERA SGS Precision Tool Inc. will invest $9.5 million for a new technology and strategic manufacturing hub.

The company makes solid carbide high-performance end mills, drills, and stainless steel medical tools.
