Site Plan for New Warehouse in Dublin VA

Virginia Logistics Center

In February, 2020, The Patton Logistics Group announced a $15 million investment to establish a 250,000 sq. ft. logistics and warehousing operation in Pulaski County, Virginia. “We couldn’t be more excited about our new facility in Pulaski County’s New River Valley Commerce Park,” said Steve Patton, President, The Patton Logistics Group. “It’s a good example of how strategically integrating our strengths can help us serve our clients logistics needs” 

In November, 2020 The Patton Logistics Group announced an additional $7 million investment in Pulaski County, Virginia.  “We are only 50% complete with phase 1 of our building construction and have already determined that the demand for our services in Southwest Virginia will be greater than initially planned. Therefore, we have decided to expand our project and add an additional 80,000 sq. ft. in phase 2 that will be completed in Q4 of 2021”, said Steve Patton.

Located with strategic access to Interstates 81 and 77, the Virginia Logistics Center will enable us to offer daily service to major population centers in Charlotte, North Carolina, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Baltimore, Maryland and Richmond, VA. More than 50 new jobs will be created as result of this initiative in Virginia. That's in addition to the 100 Virginia-based drivers we hired in recent years who are domiciled at our Roanoke, VA regional operations center.

“The new Virginia Logistics Center is a big deal because it allows us to grow smartly and strategically, but this certainly isn’t the last you’ll hear about new facilities in Southwest Virginia,” Patton said. “Everyone at this company is always looking ahead, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store in the future.”
