LEBANON TOWNSHIP — A Ravenswood-area business is relocating to Meigs County.

A-1 Truck and Trailer Service will open its doors in Meigs County in November along Route 33 in the far east end of Meigs County. The business will open a 12,000-square-foot facilioty just down from the Hot Spot gas station near Portland.

Company President Scott Whitman is pleased to be in Meigs County, he stated in a news release from the Meigs County Economic Development Office.

“Everyone has been so helpful and the reception we’ve received has been great,” Whitman said. “We’re looking forward to opening and continuing to grow in Meigs County.”

A-1 provides service, parts and repairs for commercial vehicles and has been in business in West Virginia for years. This multi-million dollar investment along busy Route 33 will serve as the flagship location for the business.

“It’s been a pleasure to work with Mr. Whitman and we appreciate his investment and the new jobs he will create in Meigs County,” said Meigs County Economic Development Director Perry Varnadoe. “It has been a true team effort on the local and state level to bring this project to the county.”

The project has been in the planning stages for over a year with assistance from the Meigs County Commissioners, Engineer Gene Triplett, JobsOhio, the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Jobs and Commerce Division and the Lebanon Township trustees.

“We’ve used many Meigs County businesses during the construction process and will continue to do so as we grow in the community,” Whitman said. “We’re thrilled to be in Meigs County.”
