3B Consulting Services Establishes Headquarters In Russell County, Virginia

A consulting and engineering service firm involved in environmental and construction work in the coalfield regions of Kentucky, West Virginia and Virginia, 3B Consulting Services will invest $2.5 million to establish its headquarters operation in Russell County, Virginia.

“3B Consulting Services was founded in Russell County, and we are pleased that with the support we have been given, we will be able to call Russell County home for a long time to come,” said Shelley Breeding, President, 3B Consulting Services. “On behalf of our employees, their families, and our many clients, we would like to thank the Governor, the Virginia Tobacco Commission, the Industrial Development Authority of Russell County, and the Town of Lebanon for their continued support of our growth and expansion.”

“3B Consulting Services is excited to expand our current footprint, allowing us to create additional jobs and continue our growth,” said Preston Breeding, Vice President, 3B Consulting Services. “We are pleased to receive such strong support from Governor McAuliffe, the Virginia Tobacco Commission, the Industrial Development Authority of Russell County, and the Town of Lebanon. The assistance offered by local officials has been reassuring as we continue to heavily invest in the creation of local jobs and growth of our economy.”

As an incentive, Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the Russell County Industrial Development Authority, the Virginia Coalfield Economic Development Authority, and the Town of Lebanon to secure the project for Virginia. Governor McAuliffe approved a $50,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Russell County with the project. The Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission approved $75,000 in Tobacco Region Opportunity Funds.

“Every day is a good day in Russell County, ‘the heart of Southwest Virginia,’ but a day like today is a great day in Russell County,” said Harry Rutherford, Chairman, Industrial Development Authority of Russell County. “When you can welcome an expansion of a homegrown business with new capital investment on a lot that has been vacant for over 25 years and new, high-paying jobs, it’s like a dream come true.”

Governor Terry McAuliffe said, “I am thrilled that 3BCS has chosen to locate its headquarters in Russell County. The company offers valuable services that are successfully revitalizing coalfield regions, and gaining these new, high-paying jobs in our great Commonwealth is a great boost for the local economy. We are working hard every day to win these types of projects, continuing our efforts to build a new Virginia economy.”

“We are delighted that 3BCS is both expanding and establishing its headquarters in Russell County,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Maurice Jones. “After years of operating in the county, 3B Consulting Services has seen firsthand the exceptional business climate and great workforce in the region. We congratulate the company and the county, and we look forward to a long-term, successful partnership.”
