New jobs   Homestead will invest $2,450,000

Homestead Building Systems will invest $2,450,000 to expand its production operation and create 60 new jobs in Orange County, Va.

This expansion will allow Homestead Building Systems to better serve the demands of the homebuilding market with its custom-engineered lumber products.

As part of this project, Homestead Building Systems will increase their annual purchases of Virginia forestry products by more than thirty percent over the next three years.

Demand for Homestead Building Systems’ quality engineered lumber products has continued to grow significantly since their 1996 opening in Bristow, Virginia.

The company made its first major expansion in 2013, with the addition of its second operation in Orange.

Today, Homestead Building Systems continues to serve the homebuilding industry as a custom manufacturer of wall panels and roof and open web floor trusses, and it also offers loose lumber and comprehensive carpentry services.

The Commonwealth is partnering with Orange County and Homestead Building Systems on this project through the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development (AFID) Fund, which is administered by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS).

Governor Ralph Northam approved a $78,000 grant from the AFID Fund, which Orange County will match with local funds. This is the first AFID award to Orange County.
