Hopkins | Lacy is proud to announce our acquisition of a new 55,000-plus-square-foot fabrication facility in our hometown of Roanoke, Virginia. This expansion will allow for approximately 20,000 more feet of space for production, assembly, staging, new equipment, and improved logistics and coordination. Our current fabrication operations will be moved to our new facility by October this year, which will house our Fabrication, Service and Special Projects divisions.
