STERLING, Va. (January 29, 2020) – JK Moving Services, the nation’s largest independently owned and operated moving company, has purchased 135 acres in Manassas that adjoins property recently bought for data center development. The land, acquired from Gainesville Associates, allows the Sterling-based company to further extend its operations, clientele, and employee base in Prince William County. In addition, the acreage will be used for commercial, industrial and data center development.
“With our business growing, we need to expand our footprint in Northern Virginia,” said Chuck Kuhn, CEO and Founder of JK Moving. “Securing a property in Manassas complements our existing Woodbridge location, and helps us in terms of better serving our area customers and hiring additional staff members.”
JK expects to add 300 new employees in the Manassas location, including administrative, sales, driver and warehouse positions, which could be good for the Prince William County job market. The company currently employs nearly 1,100 people located throughout the world, with the majority based in the DC metro area, including Loudoun, Prince William and Montgomery counties. Planned completion of JK’s new 100,000 square foot building will be in the fourth quarter of 2021 and hiring will begin shortly before that date. A second 100,000 square foot building also is planned.
Founded on the values of care and respect, JK is committed to attracting and retaining the very best employees and provides its team members with ongoing career development and a path for advancement. The company offers a formal Wellness Program; competitive compensation; a generous safe harbor 401(k) and company-paid profit-sharing program; tuition reimbursement; paid time off; an Employee Assistance Program; comprehensive medical, dental vision, and ancillary benefit coverages; bonus incentives; and employee volunteer opportunities—including the JK Community Farm, which is supported by JK Moving and grows and donates fresh produce and protein to the area’s food insecure.
