A. Duie Pyle Plans Manassas-Richmond-Roanoke, Virginia, Cross Dock Service Centers
The company’s Manassas facility located at 10461 Colonel Court will have 30 doors and create 30 new jobs; in addition, the Richmond operation located at 3609 East Belt Boulevard will have 50 doors and create 25 new jobs; and, the Roanoke facility at 3348 Salem Turnpike Northwest will have 16 doors and create 20 new jobs, according to the Greater Richmond Partnership (GRP).
“With a long history of providing our customers throughout the Northeast with premier transportation and logistics services, expanding our footprint with three new facilities across the Commonwealth of Virginia has positioned us to directly reach key metropolitan areas along the Eastern Seaboard,” said Peter Latta, Chairman and CEO of A. Duie Pyle.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with the City of Manassas, the City of Richmond, the City of Roanoke, the Greater Richmond Partnership, and the Roanoke Regional Partnership to secure the project for Virginia.
“A. Duie Pyle’s new facilities will be a substantial addition to Virginia’s diverse logistics sector and bring valuable jobs and an economic boost to three cities,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “Securing a project that spans several regions of the Commonwealth says a great deal about our strategic location, competitive operating costs and top-notch workforce, and we look forward to partnering with Pyle.”
The company is eligible to receive state benefits from the Virginia Enterprise Zone Program, administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development, for the City of Richmond location.
“The Greater Richmond Partnership welcomes A. Duie Pyle to the robust supply chain and logistics community in the region,” said Jennifer Wakefield, President and CEO of the Greater Richmond Partnership. “As a community that prides itself on ESG factors, we’re thrilled to welcome such a leader in sustainable supply chain practices.”
A. Duie Pyle, a family-owned and operated business for more than 97 years, provides a range of integrated transportation and distribution services supported by 24 LTL service centers and 14 warehouses strategically located throughout the Northeast region.
“I am excited to welcome A. Duie Pyle to the Roanoke Region,” said John Hull, Executive Director of the Roanoke Regional Partnership. “With a strategic location on the Interstate 81 corridor, the Roanoke Region is primed for investment from companies seeking a location with strong market access. Investment from A. Duie Pyle is both a testament and a complement to the region’s logistical advantages.”
