CEEUS Establishes Hanover County, Virginia, Warehouse-Distribution Operations

CEEUS, Inc., a member-owned electrical distributor that serves cooperatives, municipalities, and investor-owned utilities, plans to establish warehouse and distribution operations in Hanover County, Virginia. The $37 million project is expected to create 30 jobs.

The new 187,000-square-foot facility will support customers in Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware.

“With almost 50 years in the electric utility industry, we are confident we have the experience and distribution knowledge to build strong supply lines for the electric utility and broadband markets in Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware while developing supportive relationships in our new community of Hanover County,” said Chad Capps, President and CEO of CEEUS, Inc. “We are excited to establish in Virginia what we have built in South Carolina.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with Hanover County and the Greater Richmond Partnership to secure the project for Virginia.

“Hanover County’s convenient location directly off Interstate 95 will serve CEEUS well as the company establishes its first Virginia operation supplying electric utilities here and in neighboring states,” noted Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “It is always an honor to welcome a new corporate partner to the Commonwealth, reinforcing that Virginia is the best place to start, relocate, or grow a business.”

“We’re excited that CEEUS will be able to expand its supply chain to Greater Richmond and bolster the region’s growing power grid,” added Jennifer Wakefield, President and CEO of the Greater Richmond Partnership (GRP). “With access to the Richmond Region’s extensive transportation network, CEEUS has the opportunity in assisting power reliability in the Mid-Atlantic and beyond.”

CEEUS is a corporation owned by the electric cooperatives of South Carolina, serving as a central material supplier for the electric cooperatives, assisting them to purchase cost-effective equipment and supplies. The company also supplies Personal Protective Equipment testing and tool repair, ensuring electric coops are operating under all OSHA safety standards and requirements.
