Our history

In 1994, founder Jim Barrett saw a need in the Shenandoah Valley to serve the fast-growing market of customized closets in both new home and remodeling construction. He started a small business by obtaining a distributorship with what is now Organized Living®, a Bloomington, Indiana manufacturer of high quality closet and garage storage products.  As the business grew, new products and services were added and it was incorporated as Virginia Installations, Inc. in 1997.  In 2002, Jim purchased the company’s current offices and warehouse – a former feed mill built in the late 1800’s located in the historic district of Elkton, Virginia.

In 2011 after returning from his military service in Iraq, Jim’s son, Joe Barrett, rejoined Virginia Installations where he had been working since his teenage years.  He again took off a year during 2016-2017 to serve his Country on a military deployment to Qatar.  While still active in the National Guard Joe is back full time and sees a busy and promising future as the Company transitions to the next generation.

In 2016, Jim’s son-in-law, Ron Moore joined Virginia Installations, Inc. and is actively involved management, overseeing production, installations and customer service.
