Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced a $2 million expansion of Wytheville-based Camrett Logistics to grow its capacity and provide green supply chain technology to its operations that include 11 warehouses in Virginia and West Virginia.

“With this expansion and modernization, Camrett will strengthen its operations and Virginia’s supply chain industry ecosystem, securing continued longevity for years to come,” Youngkin noted recently. “Homegrown Virginia businesses like Camrett Logistics keep the commonwealth’s economy on the move.”

Founded in 1995, the full-service third-party logistics company operates facilities totaling 1.8 million square feet in West Virginia and Virginia, in key locations, such as along the Interstate 81 corridor.

“Businesses rely on 3PL services like Camrett’s to not only expand their reach and customer base but also to keep products moving efficiently throughout the supply chain. We are thrilled that Camrett Logistics is doubling down on its long-term commitment to Virginia with this expansion,” state Commerce Secretary Caren Merrick said. “Camrett Logistics has stimulated economic growth in southwest Virginia for nearly three decades, and we are proud to support its continued success.”

Camrett will invest some $2 million to expand capacity in Pulaski County in Dublin, a town in the Shenandoah Valley. The project will include new construction, renovating existing space and buying new forklifts as well as electric trucks.

“Virginia successfully competed with North Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia for the project, which will create 58 new jobs,” the governor’s office stated.

Laura Walters, chair of the Pulaski County Board of Supervisors, said the expansion project will advance the county’s ability to develop a “climate-smart cluster of businesses” in a regional green technology hub for advanced manufacturing.

Camrett Logistics President Cameron Peel attributed the company’s growth to its employees, customers and partners.

“This long overdue expansion will help revitalize an iconic World War II facility into a multiuse warehouse and usher the company into its new era as green supply chain experts. With four electric trucks, two electric spotters, a brand-new electric forklift fleet and motion sensor-activated LED warehouse lights, we are focused on sustainability, and the future, for the generations to come,” Peel said.

Officials from the Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with those from Pulaski County and Dublin to secure financial assistance for the project, which will involve funds and services to support Camrett’s employee training through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program. Also, Youngkin approved a $230,000 grant for Pulaski County from the commonwealth’s Development Opportunity Fund, a “deal-closing” fund the governor can use to support a company’s site selection or expansion in Virginia.

Dublin Mayor Benny Skeens said, “This project has been part of an ongoing effort to partner with Pulaski County, VEDP and Camrett to support area business and bring good jobs to Dublin. We are very grateful for the efforts of Gov. Youngkin in bringing these jobs to the Town of Dublin, Pulaski County and Virginia.”

State Sen. Travis Hackworth welcomed the expansion and ability to work with the governor on the project.

“Camrett Logistics’ decision to expand in Pulaski County showcases the enduring strength of Virginia’s workforce and business environment and underscores the potential of our region,” Hackworth said.
