Dulles Glass and Mirror, Inc. is expanding, bringing in more than $7.5 million in capital investment and 136 jobs to Prince William County.
According to a release, the company will be expanding their corporate headquarters, as well as their research, manufacturing, and warehouse operations to 7610 Doane Drive in Manassas.
This move will “generate 40 net new jobs, with an average wage of $51,092, over a five-year period. Additionally, the company is retaining and transferring all 96 employees to the new company headquarters,” stated a release.
Dulles Glass and Mirror is the recipient of an Economic Development Opportunity Fund grant for $100,000, which was given to help offset the cost of moving the company to Prince William County.
“When you are known for the best quality and service it is important that we consider both customers and employees alike. Our workforce is the core of our operation and allows us to achieve our goal,” stated Dulles Glass and Mirror Vice President of Operations/CFO Dr. Bahram Nasehi in a release.
“Were delighted to welcome Dulles Glass and Mirror into Prince William County and continue to deliver a top-ranked business climate where the company can expand and grow, providing more jobs for our citizens. More and more companies are seeking out Prince William County as they outgrow their old facilities and require a highly-skilled workforce,” stated Prince William County Board of Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart in a release.
Governor Terry McAuliffe also weighed in on the move.
“It is always gratifying to see a Virginia-headquartered manufacturing company expand, further strengthening this critical sector. Glass and Mirror has thrived in the Commonwealth for 45 years, and it was a priority to keep 96 jobs in Virginia as the company looked to consolidate and bolster its operations to meet increased product demand. Prince William County offers a facility that will accommodate the company’s future growth, and a strong, skilled workforce that has contributed to Dulles Glass and Mirror’s success over the past four decades. We are proud of our programs that train workers for the 21st century as we diversify and build a new Virginia economy,” stated McAuliffe.
