M.C. Dean Completes Phase 3 Expansion at Modular Mission Critical Campus

M.C. Dean opened the doors to its newest 168,000-sq.-ft. building on its Modular Mission Critical manufacturing campus in Caroline County, VA, during a ribbon cutting ceremony with Gov. Glenn Youngkin. With a total campus investment of $83 million to date, this building marks the completion of the company's five-year $63 million Phase 3 expansion, more than doubling the original commitment to the county and adding more than 500 skilled jobs to the region.

"For nearly 75 years, M.C. Dean has been a steadfast driver of economic development in Virginia," said Youngkin. "Their continued technical development and expansion in the state mirrors our own commitment to developing rural zones of economic opportunity and the continued growth of our skilled labor force."

The new facility is located at 12505 Innovation Drive, Ruther Glen, VA. The industrial center-known as the Caroline County Center for Innovation and Industry-serves as the home to Modular Mission Critical, M.C. Dean's manufacturing facility for customizable, fully integrated, tested and secure modular products for power, communications, security, life safety, mechanical and automation systems. The expansion increases the company's manufacturing space to more than 500,000 sq. ft., enabling increased production capability for customers in the data center, healthcare, manufacturing, transportation and federal markets.

"Modular delivery is faster, higher quality and safer, at equal or lower cost," said Bill Dean, CEO of M.C. Dean. "Our ongoing investment in our Modular Mission Critical manufacturing center enhances our ability to meet increasingly complex client demands while bolstering regional job creation and growth in Virginia's technology corridor."

The event also included remarks from Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick, and Board of Supervisors Chairman Floyd Thomas, with other regional dignitaries present.

"M.C. Dean's expansion in Caroline County has been significant. Our partnership has been extremely productive and the work they deliver is driving innovation in the construction industry at large," said Floyd Thomas, Chairman of the Caroline County Board of Supervisors. "They are now a leading employer in our county and their presence shows that this area can successfully support high-tech industries and jobs."

M.C. Dean has made numerous rounds of investment at this location over the past 20 years with the support of Caroline County and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership. Today, the 585-acre site is a cornerstone of the firm's strategic growth and a model for economic development in partnership with Caroline County.

The company is hiring 70 additional employees at the site in the coming months, including facilities maintenance roles, electricians, technicians, security and production workers. For more information on current job opportunities, visit
