San-J International Inc.

San-J is known for its soy sauces bringing flavor to dishes across the globe. In order to accommodate the growing need for more sauce, they needed to expand.


Draper Aden performed a feasibility study, site plan evaluation, and programming assistance for the proposed expansion at the San-J facility on Sprouse Drive in Henrico County. When the project was approved in 2015, we continued to work on the 5.7-acre expansion and new building. The 43,000 SF expansion allows San-J to double its soy sauce production, while the new 15,000 SF building provides an intake space for raw materials. The entire project included construction of the expansion and new building, parking lots, new roads, utilities, and all related site infrastructure. This expansion nearly doubled the size of its facility, which supports 55 employees, and created 18 new jobs.
