PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY - Governor Mark R. Warner today joined company officials to celebrate the opening of the new Comcast Cable Communications, Inc. facility in Prince William County. The 100,000-square-foot facility, located in the Innovation@Prince William business park, will serve as a Comcast Technology Support Center. The $21.5 million capital investment will create 200 new jobs and preserve 75 existing Virginia jobs.
“I’m pleased that Comcast has chosen to expand its presence and activities in the Commonwealth of Virginia,” said Governor Warner. “The company and its employees are valuable corporate citizens and I look forward to their continued growth and prosperity in Virginia.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership and the Prince William County Department of Economic Development assisted Comcast Cable with its decision. The Virginia Department of Business Assistance is providing workforce training services.
Headquartered in Philadelphia, Comcast Cable is a division of Comcast Corporation (www.comcast.com), a developer, manager and operator of broadband cable networks and provider of programming content. Comcast Cable is the third largest cable company in the United States. The company provides basic cable, digital cable and high-speed Internet services. Comcast Cable’s approximately 18,000 cable division employees serve more than 8.4 million customers in six geographic regions.
Comcast Cable serves more than 1.5 million customers in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Comcast, whose Mid-Atlantic Division offices are located in White Marsh, Maryland, employs more than 4,000 people in the Mid-Atlantic Division.
“After an extensive multi-state search, Comcast selected Prince William County for multiple reasons,” said Jaye Gamble, Regional Vice President, Comcast's Washington Metro/Virginia Region. “We were most impressed with the commitment from the county and the state to this project. The commitment to reduce costs and provide rapid review and approval of the tenant improvement plans reflects the county’s favorable business environment. Additionally, the participation by the state, in particular Governor Warner, to address tax issues and provide training support is another indication of Virginia’s competitive advantage.”
“The Prince William Board of County Supervisors is delighted that Comcast has chosen the County to be the home of their new Technical Support Center. Comcast is a great company and already a valuable corporate citizen of Prince William County. This announcement expands their presence in the County and solidifies our already strong partnership,” said Chairman of the Board of County Supervisors Sean T. Connaughton. “This announcement is further confirmation that Prince William County has become a location of choice for new and expanding businesses.”
