The Prince William Board of County Supervisors recently announced Southland Concrete Corp. will invest $6 million and add 30 new jobs to Prince William County. The Southland Concrete corporate headquarters and yard is newly located at 12775 Randolph Ridge Lane, Manassas, Va. 20109.
Prince William County was selected above other regional jurisdictions due to the ease of access to transportation corridors and a readily available, highly skilled workforce. The company plans to use the existing building on-site for its headquarters and lease nearby land for a yard. The headquarters will employ 30 staff in addition to approximately 225 field employees.
“We are excited to be in our new headquarters facility in Prince William County. The County has been great to work with, it has many options with the zoning we need and outstanding amenities nearby, as well as, excellent transportation and a workforce that is second to none, in the area,” said Randy Green, Southland CEO and President.

Stewart, Chairman, Prince William Board of County Supervisors. “We are committed to supporting its future growth.”
