August 2, 2022 (Roanoke, VA) — The Branch Group recently relocated its main headquarters to 3635 Peters Creek Road, expanding its presence in the Roanoke Valley. The company celebrated this important event with a ribbon cutting ceremony on August 2, 2022.
“We are excited to continue to grow our presence in the Roanoke community where hundreds of our employee-owners call home,” said Donald Graul, Chief Executive Officer of Branch Group. “Making this move to bring all of our business units under a single roof supports our long-term vertical integration strategy to provide a full suite of construction services to our customers while also providing an exceptional work environment for our employees and partners.”
The new office facility was not the only item being celebrated by the company. The firm has recognized growth in each of its business units serving as validation of the strategies it employed last year. This growth helps offer the people of the communities surrounding Branch Group’s Virginia and North Carolina markets access to more than 200 new jobs. Branch Group will not only recruit experienced professionals, but also train and develop new personnel into the construction sector. The firm is coming off its most prodigious month relative to adding new personnel to its ranks and expects the trend to continue.
Branch Group is not done with its facility expansion efforts and is making additional investments both in the Roanoke Valley as well in other markets. The company recently purchased a larger fabrication facility in a Roanoke industrial park that will modernize and replace its nearby existing location. The firm recently completed a brand-new equipment shop in Suffolk, VA as well as office expansions in both Richmond and Chesapeake. Northern Virginia and Raleigh (NC) are next in the company’s plan to expand and consolidate existing facilities.
“Our growth demonstrates the trust and reputation Branch Group has attained with our customers and markets and substantiates the strategy we laid out last year. Furthermore, we could have not achieved our substantial growth without strong owner and trade partner relationships, exceptional project quality and safety performance and most importantly the diligence of our team of more than 850 employee owners,” noted Bob Wills, Branch Group’s Chief Financial Officer.
