Belmont Aggregates, a trucking company that specializes in hauling aggregate, has moved its Powhatan Point headquarters to a more centralized location in Bridgeport, Ohio to address the company’s need to grow as a result of increased business activity, The Times Leader reports.
“On any given day, we have about 40-60 trucks on the road,” Nicole Fletcher, area accounts manager, tells the news agency. “We have been in business over 20 years. We moved because we wanted to be able to have the room to grow and be close to our customer base. We really do service the tri-state area, but we wanted to be in the heart of everything. Powhatan was kind of a long haul. We’re more centralized now, and we service the tri-state area within about 100 miles of Wheeling, W.Va. or so … it gives us the room to grow.
“We’re very busy, which is one of the reasons for having to move to a new location,” Fletcher continues. “We’re growing. Our fleet is increasing. We’re getting more work. Right now we’re kind of on the cusp of all of the building and things like that, so that is where the rock comes in, and now that we’re getting toward fall and winter, we will really be getting busy with the cinders.”
Fletcher says the business is known for 24-hour service. “That’s something that is very appealing for companies and individuals,” Fletcher tells the news agency. “We are known to really take care of our customers and bend over backwards for them. We’re really excited to bring that legacy into Bridgeport and continue to grow and take care of our customers.”
