Growth of Williams Lea Group’s Wheeling Operations Center accelerates
The Williams Lea Group announces continued and aggressive expansion plans for their Wheeling operations center. A ribbon cutting ceremony today officially opened an additional 11,250 of square footage at the historic Stone Center building on Main Street in Wheeling, bringing their total space to just under 50,000 square feet. With this expansion comes a variety of new opportunities for employment.
The recent expansion is driven by a projected 30% growth in new client activity for just this year and builds on another 30% growth over the preceding 18 months. With over 300 employees currently supporting its blue chip client base, a Tag creative studio and Williams Lea Group corporate services, the Group is expecting to fill another 100 new positions in the near term.
“Williams Lea has honored their commitment to the city of Wheeling, with their investment in jobs and infrastructure,” said Andy McKenzie, Mayor, City Of Wheeling. “They provide good jobs, with good pay and good benefits. They’ve been a wonderful addition to Downtown Wheeling and the entire Ohio Valley.”
