The new central location on Hamilton Street allows home repair company better access to customers across the region
Woodfin, a home services contractor providing heating, cooling, plumbing, and other services, celebrated the opening of their new headquarters near Scott’s Addition Tuesday morning.
Company officials (and Woodfin’s company mascot dog Roxy) were joined by Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones at the new facility at 1823 North Hamilton Street. For four decades, Woodfin’s headquarters were located in Mechanicsville. This new location, which replaces the original, will allow Woodfin a central hub from which to serve their customers throughout the greater Richmond area.
“We’re excited to move our headquarters to the City of Richmond and to be a part of the revitalization happening in this particular neighborhood,” said Jack Woodfin, second-generation CEO and president, Woodfin. “This new central location for our main facility will allow us to better serve our customers and continue to offer our dependability and expertise to our entire service area. We look forward to what the future holds for our employees and our customers.”
Woodfin took on this renovation project in the spring of 2015 and worked to restore and renovate the building, which was completed in about eight months. The building contains one of the city’s oldest freight elevators as well as steel parts from an old Richmond bridge.
“A big part of what we do as a company is restore homes with our customers; therefore, it was important to us and made sense to renovate and restore a building in Richmond as our headquarters,” said Justin Andress, president of Woodfin. “We look forward to bringing some new life into our freshly renovated home and to joining one of Richmond’s fastest growing neighborhoods.”
