New center consolidates four former company headquarters.
Richmond, Va.-based Mid-Atlantic Convenience Stores (MACS), one of the largest consortiums of ExxonMobil retailers in the U.S., has moved into its new Business Support Center in Richmond, Va.
The 22,000 square-foot Business Support Center consolidates four former headquarters locations into a single operations hub for the company. The facility features modern stone-and-glass architecture accented by vintage gas pumps, a reflection of the company’s strong heritage in the fuel business. In addition, the offices include training facilities, a full food-and-beverage zone, a test kitchen for development of new food concepts, a technology lab for pre-testing field-service systems, an exercise room, and an area for staff relaxation and comfort.
“We deliberately have brought together our diverse operations into a single Business Support Center to gain synergies and efficiencies between our people and systems,” said Jim Summers, president of Mid-Atlantic. “By naming this location the ‘Business Support Center,’ we have reinforced our key priority: to support our people in the ‘field.’ This is the focus of our energies every day.”
Summers continued, “Our new Business Support Center includes the best-in-class features for running our business and accommodating our future growth plans. Since we have located here, the energy of our team is truly palpable.”
The official Grand Opening of the new Business Support Center is forecasted for late March 2011, Summers stated.
MACS is comprised of approximately 300 company-owned and dealer retail locations throughout Maryland and Virginia, in addition to its wholesale fuel distribution network.
