BELO, W. Va. – The Mingo County Redevelopment Authority has announced a new tenant at the Belo Industrial Park.
Executive Director Leasha Johnson stated that JP Technical Services, which is a full scale service company, specializing in equipment maintenance, cleaning, and transporting, with crane and equipment rental, has moved to Mingo County.
“Because of a shift in its coal mining customer base from central West Virginia to southern West Virginia and Eastern Kentucky, JP Technical is relocating its headquarters from the Summersville area to Mingo County at the Belo Industrial Park,” Johnson said.
“The new tenant will occupy both the former TMK building on U.S. 119 North and the five acre site just off of State Route 65,” Johnson added.
JP Technical operates a fleet of approximately 60 vehicles and rental equipment and currently employs approximately 30 people.
“Most of those individuals will commute to Mingo County, which means they’ll be spending money in our local grocery stores, restaurants and service stations, and if all goes well, there’s potential for new jobs to be created in the future,” Johnson said.
JP Technical will be making some capital improvements to the office building and erecting a 50 feet by 50 feet working facility on the five acre tract.
“We’re excited that JP Technical chose Mingo County as its new home, and we look forward to a mutually rewarding relationship,” Johnson concluded.
