SRP Companies Announces $1.16 M Warehouse Investment in Virginia Beach

[ October 30, 2019   //   ]

SRP Companies, a leading supplier to more than 60,000 retailers nationwide, will invest $1.16 million to relocate a substantial portion of its warehouse operations from Philadelphia, Utah, and Oklahoma to the City of Virginia Beach.

“SRP Companies’ decision to move its operations to Virginia is a significant win for the distribution industry in Hampton Roads and the entire Commonwealth,” said Governor Northam. “With access to major population centers and the Port of Virginia as an international gateway, leading companies like SRP continue to recognize the advantages of locating in our Commonwealth. We are confident that SRP’s new Virginia Beach facility will help the company grow on the East Coast.”

Since its founding as a regional distributor of sunglasses in 1969, SRP Companies has grown into an international leader providing in-store merchandising solutions to a wide variety of retail partners and their consumers. SRP Companies, a subsidiary of parent company Soloray, are consolidating and expanding their storage, warehousing, and distribution services, currently located in Pennsylvania, Utah, California, and Ohio.

“We are proud that a global company like SRP Companies will invest over $1 million investment to relocate its warehouse operations to Virginia Beach,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Brian Ball. “This project is a win-win for the company, Virginia Beach, and the Commonwealth, and reinforces Virginia’s position as a global distribution and logistics hub. We look forward to a strong corporate partnership with SRP, and thank the company for its significant investment in the Commonwealth.”

“We are very excited to be expanding our warehouse and distribution operations into Virginia Beach in 2020,” said Darrin Eisele, CEO of SRP Companies. “We are excited to be in such high-quality facilities close to the Port of Virginia. This enables us to improve the efficiency of our import activities and better serve our customers. Virginia Beach provides an excellent work environment for our employees and operations.”
