After approval was given this week by the Georgetown City Council, Champion Site Prep is set to begin construction this year on a new headquarters for its more than 200 employees near I-35 and CR 143.
After a temporary relocation to Jarrell, Champion Site Prep plans to invest more than $17 million in an 18-acre headquarters facility.
The company performs site development and excavation services for schools, commercial retail, office buildings, hospitals, subdivisions, and commercial site development.
“We are excited to see Champion Site Prep return to Georgetown, and continue to grow in our community. We always appreciate when one of our major employers chooses to grow here,” Mayor Dale Ross said. “The City works hard to partner with our businesses to continue to create a world class business environment that makes Georgetown a great place to work.”
Along with the new location, the company plans to create 75 new jobs during the next five years with an average annual salary of $65,000.
“We are excited to soon be building our new headquarters for Champion Site Prep, and are happy we are able to build in Georgetown. Georgetown’s growth and supportive business climate make it a perfect place for companies like ours to grow,” said Trey Taparauskas, Champion Site Prep president and CEO. “We could have put the building anywhere in Williamson County, but Georgetown is our home. We appreciate the efforts made by City leaders and staff to help us find a location in Georgetown, and we look forward to a long partnership with the City as we continue to grow.”
The Georgetown City Council approved an agreement to reimburse the company $500,000 for infrastructure improvements.
