OTTAWA - Industrial Millwright Services, LLC is expanding their company and constructing a new building in the Ottawa Industrial Park across from the county jail. In addition to the new building the company will create six jobs.

Owners Duane and Lisa Greear started their company in 2003 and have outgrown their current space. Lisa credits their hard working employees as part of their businesses success.

"We have top notch employees and they are very skilled at what they do. All of our clients are satisfied and give good recommendations to others," she said.

Owner Duane was the only employee when the company first began in 2003 and has worked hard to make it what it is today. "The company is client based and depending on the project, they might need more or less people, the company employs 15 to 20 people," Lisa commented.

Currently the company is operated out of the Greears' home located in Ottawa; the new building will begin construction next month and should be completed by the end of the year. The Ottawa Village Planning Commission approved the preliminary cite plan at their April 19 meeting for the Greears' to begin construction.

Lisa explained it has been difficult with the trucks coming in and having to do all the work from their home and the advantages the new building will have for their business. "The new building will have a 10 ton crane inside and a steel truck drive through, where the trucks can just pull into the building," she said.
