On Tuesday, December 8, Mayor Jones along with Woodfin officials celebrated the opening of the new Woodfin headquarters at 1823 North Hamilton Street in Richmond. This new location, that replaces their old headquarters which served them for four decades in Mechanicsville, gives Woodfin a central hub to serve their customers throughout the greater Richmond area.
“I am thrilled Woodfin decided to relocate their headquarters to the city of Richmond. Locally rooted businesses like Woodfin play a critical role in the revitalization taking place along this important corridor of the city,” said Mayor Jones.
Woodfin is a family-owned business rooted in Richmond for two generations and a firm supporter of the growth that is taking place in the city. The renovation project started in the spring of 2015 and took about eight months to complete. Woodfin is the latest Richmond-based company to join the city’s revitalization efforts in and around the Scott’s Addition neighborhood.
“Scott’s Addition is experiencing an influx of new residential, commercial, and light industrial development, with some being done privately and others utilizing City assistance,” continued Mayor Jones. “The area is definitely on the radar of entities looking to produce unique mixed use developments and I am excited to see the growth that is happening here.”
