ModularMEP™ Manufacturing and Systems Integration Facility Expansion Announced
March 25, 2019

M.C. Dean, Inc., a leading electrical design-build and systems integration firm for mission-critical organizations, has announced that the firm will invest $25.1 million to incorporate a new product line at its fabrication and distribution facility in Caroline County, Virginia.

Headquartered in Tysons, Virginia, M.C. Dean employs more than 3,500 professionals who engineer and deploy automated, secure and resilient power and technology systems; and deliver the management platforms essential for long-term system sustainability. M.C. Dean began development of its prefabrication facility in Caroline County, Virginia in 2003 and opened the site in 2006. Today, the facility serves as the home for ModularMEP™, M.C. Dean’s product line of large-scale, fully-integrated, modularized power, electronic security and telecom systems and rooms that are engineered, integrated, tested and pre-commissioned at the center before being transported to project and construction sites across the United States.

The expansion, which opens this summer, will double the company’s manufacturing capacity to support high-growth, mission-critical customers such as data centers, airports, and healthcare facilities. The site of the expansion was renamed the Caroline County Center for Innovation and Industry and adds more than 220 new acres of ready-to-develop land to support future expansion.

“The Center for Innovation and Industry is a strategic investment to grow our modular production and manufacturing capabilities to meet customer demands for speed to market, improved quality, and more reliable pricing,” said Bill Dean, CEO of M.C. Dean. “We believe that modular delivery is the future of the construction industry, and we’re pleased with our decision to double down on that investment here in our home state of Virginia.”

According to a statement released by Governor Ralph S. Northam’s office, “With over 1,500 employees and a 70-year history in Virginia, M.C. Dean is a valued employer that continues to demonstrate tremendous confidence in the Commonwealth’s business climate and skilled workforce,” said Governor Northam. “The company’s major expansion in Caroline County will help strengthen both the regional economy and Virginia’s growing advanced manufacturing sector, and we thank M.C. Dean for its long-term partnership and reinvestment in the Commonwealth.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Caroline County to secure the project for Virginia. Governor Northam approved a $500,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Caroline County with the project. The Governor also approved a $250,000 performance-based grant from the Virginia Investment (VIP) program, an incentive that encourages capital investment by existing Virginia companies. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP).
