RICHMOND, Va. -- Moore, a direct-marketing company, announced Tuesday it would open Richmond Print Group in Henrico County.

Richmond Print Group would operate in the facility, at 8000 Villa Park Drive, where Colortree Group abruptly shuttered last June.

Two hundred forty people lost their jobs when Colortree Group closed.

Richmond Print Group is expected to create 239 jobs when it opens.

“With the investment we are making in Richmond Print Group, we will bring next-generation technology to our clients,” Gretchen Littlefield, CEO of Moore, said. “We appreciate everyone at the Virginia Economic Development Partnership for their help in making this project possible to advance economic growth for the state and this vibrant community we are joining.”

Based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Moore employs 2,500 people nationwide.

"Moore’s new investment will allow the company to purchase and install the modern equipment needed to remove the outsourcing of its envelope production and increase the productivity of its direct mail operation," a spokesperson for Virginia Governor Ralph Northam said.
