Scott Finney of Ware Neck, president of the company, said the new plant, Rappahannock Concrete’s sixth, is located on 58th Street in the Copeland Industrial Park, Hampton. The plant expands the company’s Peninsula service, as it complements a branch plant already in operation in Newport News, Finney said.
Eight employees work at the new plant, said Cara Randolph of Deltaville, Rappahannock Concrete’s secretary/treasurer. Randolph, who is Finney’s sister, said the company has a total of 60 employees.
Six mixer trucks have been assigned to the Hampton plant, Finney said. Rappahannock Concrete has a total of 65 vehicles, of which 32 are mixer trucks, Randolph said.
Dave Guerrero has been named Peninsula District manager, and is in charge of the Hampton and Newport News plants. Guerrero, who resides in Newport News, previously was a dispatcher at Rappahannock Concrete’s New Kent plant.
Also, Ken Hainley of Gloucester Point was named assistant plant manager of the Hampton facility. Robert White of Chesapeake was named assistant manager of the Newport News plant.
