STAFFORD, Virginia –– Patricio Enterprises, Inc. (PE) announced the grand opening of its new headquarters location at 525 Corporate Drive, Stafford, Virginia at the Quantico Corporate Center will be held on May 11, 2012.

The 30,000-square-foot, three story building features multiple conference, work and collaboration spaces. The building and land are owned by Patricio Group, LLC. PE’s headquarters occupies half of the space available in the building.
