Manufacturer to open new facility

The Front Royal-Warren County Economic Development Authority announced Thursday that a new manufacturing facility will open on Strasburg Road later this year.

After a yearlong process, Dulles Industries, a construction foundation drilling equipment manufacture, will be moving into the former North American Housing plant in Warren County.

The move is expected to create five high skilled manufacturing positions this year, eventually expanding to 25 positions over the next two to three years. The facility employs 16 full time and two part-time personnel.

The EDA purchased the property and is leasing it back to Dulles for about five years, when the company will purchase the buildings from the EDA.
