RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A medical device maker plans to expand its operations in Virginia and create 57 new jobs.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Thursday that Thermo Fisher Scientific will spend $9.5 million expanding its clinical diagnostic operation in Frederick County.

McAuliffe said Virginia beat out California for the project. The governor approved a $110,000 grant for the company, which will also receive state aide through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.

The company currently employs more than 300 people at the Frederick County site.
