PVB Fabrications, Inc. (PVB), primarily a multi-disciplined general contractor and provider of quality welding and fabrication services for the commercial, utility, government, heavy industrial and mining sectors, announces plans to expand its headquarters in Marana.
PVB has purchased 10 acres at 8037 and 8041 W. Tangerine Road, 85658 and is planning the construction of a new corporate headquarters to consolidate operations into one location. The new facilities will include a 15KSF administrative office building plus three separate 30KSF fabrication/production facilities.
PVB is currently located at 911 W. Grant Road, 85705 and employs 375 people. The full expansion over five years will add an additional 169 jobs primarily in operations, project management, quality control, engineering, business development and finance.
Phase one of the new headquarters is scheduled to be complete by December 2020. The total capital investment over the next five years will be approximately $17M, resulting in a total economic impact of $48M.
Partners in the project include the Arizona Commerce Authority, the Town of Marana, the Pima Community College and the Small Business Development Center, PICOR, Randel Jacob Design Group, PLLC, Stewart Title, Eric Nadler, Esq. and Arizona First Properties.
“PVB’s new headquarters is a logical and necessary step in our business growth strategy. It provides the opportunity to further expand our operations and will increase our ability to serve current and future clients,” said Peter Van Bogaert, president, PVB.
“In addition to business attraction, economic development is about helping local companies like PVB expand,” said Joe Snell, president & CEO of Sun Corridor Inc. “Headquarter expansions such as this have a tremendous ripple effect across the entire economy. Their success is the entire region’s success.”
“We are thrilled to welcome PVB to north Marana,” said Mayor Ed Honea, Town of Marana. “Their employees’ diverse skills enable them to cross multiple disciplines and sectors that include quality welding and metal fabrications to electrical and instrumentation services. PVB’s projects span the entire southwest, we’re excited to have another quality business in the town and look forward to seeing them grow.”
“Retaining expanding businesses is a key economic growth strategy for our region, as is fostering and supporting high-wage manufacturing jobs. Congratulations to PVB on its planned move to a new facility. We wish them continued success and stand ready to provide them any assistance they may require to fill these new positions,” said Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry.
