Asheville Construction Picking Up
For anyone living in or even just visiting Asheville, one thing is readily noticeable: there is a lot of construction happening. Driving on the Expressway downtown, tower cranes dot the skyline helping build a few high-rise hotels, a new multi-use development in a historic section of the city, and a new County Department of Health and Human Services Building. On the residential side, a recent statistic in ‘Business North Carolina’ showed the valuation of residential building permits in Asheville up nearly 30% in January 2016 over the same month in 2015. Even the view from our office has changed, as over 300 apartments and ground level retail are being built on Fairview Road, overlooking our bulk plant and Biltmore Village:
In addition to keeping many of the local contractors we support busy, the amount of construction activity is bringing in contractors from all over. We get calls weekly from companies based out of Charlotte, Greensboro, Atlanta, and even the Mid-West inquiring about fueling their equipment, setting temporary fuel tanks and pumps, or looking for grease and other lubricants to keep their projects moving forward. If we can help your company with motor fuels, propane or lubricants, please contact us today. We are proud to provide one small piece towards the growth of Asheville and Western North Carolina, and to have been doing so since 1930.
