The expansion project will generate 40 net new jobs, with an average wage of $51,092, over a five-year period. The company is retaining and transferring all 96 employees to its new company headquarters, which will be located in Manassas.
“When you are known for the best quality and service it is important that we consider both customers and employees alike. Our workforce is the core of our operation and allows us to achieve our goal,” said Dr. Bahram Nasehi, Vice President of Operations/CFO, Dulles Glass and Mirror, Inc.
Dulles Glass and Mirror will receive an Economic Development Opportunity Fund (EDOF) grant in the amount of $100,000 to offset existing building renovations and new equipment purchase costs and assist the company in the location of its corporate headquarters, research and development, manufacturing, and warehousing operations.
“It is always gratifying to see a Virginia-headquartered manufacturing company expand, further strengthening this critical sector,” said Governor Terry McAuliffe. “Dulles Glass and Mirror has thrived in the Commonwealth for 45 years, and it was a priority to keep 96 jobs in Virginia as the company looked to consolidate and bolster its operations to meet increased product demand. Prince William County offers a facility that will accommodate the company’s future growth, and a strong, skilled workforce that has contributed to Dulles Glass and Mirror’s success over the past four decades. We are proud of our programs that train workers for the 21st century as we diversify and build a new Virginia economy.”
