Gov. O'Malley visited VT Industries in Hagerstown on April 23 to tour the company's state-of-the-art manufacturing plant and celebrate Maryland manufacturing. In 2010, VT announced it would close its Fine Laminate Countertop plant in Shelbyville, Ind., and move operations to Hagerstown.

The company hired more than 50 local workers and invested approximately $11 million in the former Kongsberg Automotive plant.
