Made in Henrico: A Look Inside the County’s Manufacturing Sector, is a recent Henrico County Television program produced by Ryan Eubank. You can watch the video here. In the video you’ll learn that Henrico has more than a land of suburban homes and a large mall.
There is some serious manufacturing muscle in Henrico. Including but not limited to ChapStick lip balm, Chips Ahoy! cookies and Robitussin cough syrup.
Other Henrico companies produce items such as margarine, dog treats, dry shampoo, snack foods and beer.
“This is a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the people and technology responsible for those products,” said Eubank. “The idea for the program was brought to us by Felicia Ainsa at the Henrico EDA [Economic Development Authority]. We’ve delved into manufacturing briefly in a variety of other documentaries, but this is the first one solely focused on the topic.”
