A. Duie Pyle opened a new regional distribution center today in Manassas.
The logistics firm held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its service center at 10461 Colonel Court, just off Godwin Drive. Peter A. Latta, whose great-grandfather Alexander Duie Pyle founded the trucking firm nearly 100 years ago, joined Manassas Mayor Michele Davis Younger to open the new business.
“If my great grandfather were here today, there would be so much he wouldn’t recognize, but the one thing he would recognize would be the cornerstone, our core values, and culture, which we’ve been able to perpetuate since the very beginning,” said Latta. “Our north star core value — do under others as you would have them do unto you.”
The company also opened locations in Richmond and Roanoke to expand into Virginia. The company, founded in West Chester, Penn. now hauls freight between Canada and North Carolina borders and into Ohio.
A. Duie Pyle will hire 30 people, including managers, drivers, dockworkers, and clerical workers, to operate its Manassas freight center.
In addition to hauling consumer goods, the company also rents four million square feet of warehousing space to companies without their sites.
The words “Pyle People Deliver” are stenciled on the walls inside the Manassas logistics center. City Council members Mark Wolfe, Tom Osina, and City Manager Patrick Pate also attended the ribbon cutting.
Afterward, the company served greek pita and other food during a buffet-style lunch to show appreciation to those who attended the event.
