As the final step in a multi-year process, Omega Protein has officially moved its corporate headquarters to Reedville, from Houston, Texas.
As part of the move, additional employees have been added to the workforce, following a major renovation and reinvestment in the company’s Reedville facilities.
“Moving our headquarters to Reedville is part of our long-term commitment to Virginia and the region,” said chief executive officer Bret Scholtes. “We’re proud of our long history here, and this move ensures that we will be active members of the community for years to come. It is safe to say that we are happy to be home in Reedville.”
Essential to the relocation was the $1.3 million investment made by the company to refurbish a historic building on the property to serve as the new headquarters. Working with a local team of architects, designers and contractors, the company restored many of the original features of the building, originally built in the 1930s to serve as the headquarters of an earlier fishing operation, the J. Howard Smith Company.
