Company President, Troy Johnson, was joined by Huntington Mayor Brooks Fetters, Huntington County Commissioner Tom Wall, and Huntington County Economic Development Corporation executive director, Mark Wickersham in celebrating the announcement.
“Both the City and County have been incredibly supportive of my company.
