JK Moving & Storage Expands Sterling, VA Corporate Headquarters
27-acre expansion to include a third warehouse and additional office facility.
January 5, 2005—Sterling, VA—With construction already underway, JK Moving & Storage today formally announced plans to expand their corporate headquarters through the addition of a third warehouse and office facility on their 27-acre campus in Sterling. The new 88,000-square-foot warehouse, which broke ground in November, is targeted for completion in May 2005. When finished, the facility will expand JK's capacity across all five of the company's core capabilities, fueled in large part by the influx of 75 to 120 new full-time positions the company expects to fill. One of fastest-growing companies in the Washington metropolitan area and the fifth-largest independent mover in the nation.
"When finished, this third office will house our entire commercial division," says executive vice president Steve Kuhn, who heads that operation. "This includes our entire office moving, asset management and records management groups, which will effectively allow both the commercial team and our residential operation to expand considerably." The move, Steve Kuhn says, is expected to result in 75-to-120 new full- time positions spanning administrative support, sales, warehousing and accounting as well as movers and drivers. "In addition, we have also purchased more than $3 million worth of inventory, primarily trucks, tractors and trailers, all of it locally," he said.
The expansion is part of JK's recent growth spurt which includes the company's October purchase of Gaithersburg, MD-based Thomas AAA Moving and Storage, a move which has added roughly 100 new jobs to the local economy while allowing JK to establish a physical presence in suburban Maryland. "We've always done business in Montgomery County, but now, we have a base of operation that allows us to better serve our customers in that region," said company president Chuck Kuhn, Steve's brother. "The expansion of our Sterling facility will allow us to further maximize those services for all our clientele—corporate, residential and government—even more so."
"These are extremely exciting times for us here at JK."
