Spotsylvania EDA makes grants to four businesses

Spotsylvania’s Economic Development Authority recently awarded incentive grants totaling $44,500 to four companies in the county.

  • Aspetto Inc., which makes custom-made suits and shirts and recently launched a line involving inserting bullet-resistant material into formalwear, was awarded $12,000 to purchase machinery for its location off State Route 2, train workers and launch an online store.
  • Backyard America in the Bowman Center got $10,000 to set up a metal shop for welding, bending and finishing aluminum extrusions to be used in pergola kits.
  • Convert! Integrated Marketing, an online marketing and website development firm, got $10,000 toward signing a longer-term lease in the county.
  • Stevenson Ridge, an inn and special event space in the courthouse area, got $12,500 toward a planned business expansion.

Applications for the next round of EDA grants are due March 1.
