Sealand Contractors Relocates Mid-Atlantic Office, 150 Employees to Midland
Midland has landed another new project. Sealand Contractors Corp. is relocating their Mid-Atlantic Regional Office from Charlotte to Midland, NC. Originally formed in 1977, Sealand Contractors Corp. specializes in industrial construction, institutional facility construction, heavy highway construction, and municipal waste facility site work. In 1995, they opened their mid-Atlantic regional office in the NoDa neighborhood of Charlotte. They will be relocating within the Midland town limits on Highway 24/27 near the Mecklenburg County line.
Mayor John Crump states, “In December of 2016, the Purser family annexed a 24 acre tract on Highway 24/27 into the Midland town limits. The town applied industrial zoning to the tract and began working with the family to develop the tract. With 1,000 feet of highway frontage, industrial zoning, and excellent access to the Charlotte market we knew it would go fast. In a little over a year, the property was under contract and currently the site is under construction. We’ve had a lot of questions about who is locating there, and we are thrilled to announce Sealand is joining our community.”
Sealand will field 150 employees out of the Midland office, predominantly focused on heavy highway construction throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Their relocation follows several other new projects within the Town of Midland. CF Steel located off Old Camden Rd within the Midland corporate limits. They manufacture fully engineered pre-fabricated steel trusses for commercial and institutional projects. Formed in 2011, their most recent projects include manufacturing roof trusses for Indigo Hall an assisted living facility in Charleston SC and Meadow Lane Elementary a new school in Goldsboro NC. Their facility is now open and operating. PVG Trucking’s new office is planned on Highway 601 just east of Rob Wallace Park. They will build office and warehouse space, and employee 35 out of their Midland office. Recently, the town held a ribbon cutting for Champion Landscapes Inc., which also relocated their headquarters from Charlotte.
Town Manager Doug Paris states, “Within the last four years, the town’s property tax base has grown a combined 24% due to voluntary annexations and new development. We have the lowest property tax rate in Cabarrus and Mecklenburg counties, and excellent proximity to the Charlotte market. This makes Midland a very desirable place to locate your business.”
