State Treasurer Riley Moore today welcomed Irving, Texas-based Commercial Metals Company and its half-billion-dollar investment to Berkeley County.
“This is fantastic news for West Virginia and our Eastern Panhandle communities and is further evidence that business leaders around the country recognize our state is a tremendous place to invest,” Treasurer Moore said. “As a member of the state’s Economic Development Authority, I was proud to cast my vote this morning in support of this project to bring more jobs and investment to our state.
“Commercial Metals’ investment to create at least 230 great-paying jobs in Berkeley County will be a significant boost to our already growing Eastern Panhandle economy and attract even more economic activity to the area,” Treasurer Moore said. “Every day, more and more people and job creators are choosing West Virginia to live, invest and grow their families and businesses – this is a testament to the principled, conservative leadership we’ve instilled across this state in recent years.
“Commercial Metals’ announcement is the latest evidence that our legislative reforms and the sound financial management of our state in recent years have made us the perfect place for businesses to choose to invest.”
