Wilmik to expand Virginia Beach headquarters
Wilmik Inc., a business founded in 1983 in Virginia Beach, will more than double its size with an expansion and new location.
The company provides concrete construction ranging from footings to stamped and dyed slabs for commercial and residential projects.
Currently located at 1736 Virginia Beach Blvd., Wilmik has purchased a 1.09-acre site at 512 Central Drive in Virginia Beach, which will expand its corporate headquarters from 5,000 to 12,000 square feet.
In addition, the company will add 12 to 15 jobs with annual salaries ranging $41,600 to $62,400 per year excluding benefits.
The company currently employs 60 people.
“Wilmik had the opportunity to move to another city, and we are very pleased to keep this growing, family-owned business in Virginia Beach,” Warren D. Harris, Virginia Beach’s economic development director, said in a statement. “The location is in a Strategic Economic Growth Area, and this corporate headquarters location aligns with our goals and vision for future development.”
The Virginia Beach Development Authority has approved an economic development incentive program grant of $30,000 based on Wilmik Inc.’s capital investment of $2.13 million in real estate and business property. The grant funds will be used to offset real estate improvements and equipment purchases.
