“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.”
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. They recently completed a brand-new equipment shop in Suffolk, Virginia, as well as office expansions in both Richmond and Chesapeake. Northern Virginia and Raleigh, North Carolina, 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,” said Bob Wills, Branch Group’s Chief Financial Officer.
