Commercial Metals Company Plans $12 Million Manufacturing Expansion In King George County, Virginia
Commercial Metals Company and its subsidiaries manufacture, recycle and market steel and metal products, related materials and services through a network including steel minimills, steel fabrication and processing plants, construction-related product warehouses, metal recycling facilities and marketing and distribution offices in the United States and in strategic international markets.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with King George County and the Fredericksburg Regional Alliance to secure the project for Virginia. The company is eligible for rail access funding from the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
Governor Terry McAuliffe said, “My top priority as Governor is to create a new Virginia economy, and Commercial Metals Company’s investment in the Fredericksburg region is another step forward in this goal. Virginia is proud to retain a valued employer and corporate partner like CMC, and King George County’s manufacturing site with rail service meets the company’s current growth needs and provides capacity for future expansion.”
“Commercial Metals Company is a great asset to the Fredericksburg region and the Commonwealth,” said Maurice Jones, Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade. “Advanced manufacturing is an increasingly important sector for catalyzing economic growth and job creation in Virginia. We look forward to CMC’s future in King George County.”
“Considering the highly competitive nature of economic development, it is exciting to be able to add a Fortune 500 Company of CMC’s caliber to King George County,” said Linwood Thomas, King George County Economic Development Director. “This project will also help to bring additional infrastructure to the King George Industrial Park, making it a destination for manufacturing corporations nationally and internationally looking to grow and expand between Washington, D.C. and Richmond, Virginia, strategically located on the eastern seaboard.
