, an electronics repair company for the commercial laundry industry, recently moved and expanded its repair operations in western North Carolina to a newly remodeled, 10,000-square-foot facility in Burnsville, N.C.
The company received a $25,000 “Building Reuse Grant” from the state to help them renovate a vacated textile factory in their county. In all, the business invested approximately $500,000 into the overhaul of its new plant. Mountain Electronics also received grant money to aid in finding and training qualified employees.
“We’re growing, but we still have every intention of maintaining our high-quality repairs and great customer service,” said CEO and co-owner George Brasington.
Mountain Electronics specializes in repairing the circuit boards of commercial washers and dryers from the U.S. and Canada.
Since its inception in 1999, the mission has been “to provide excellent repair service for its laundromat customers, while maintaining low prices and quick turnaround times,” according to the company.
In addition, Mountain Electronics is committed to sustainability. Not only do its repairs help keep circuit boards and machines out of landfills, but the company also uses recycled and biodegradable paper and packing materials. What’s more, they own a 15kW solar array, which supplies roughly half of their electricity needs.
And, in its new location, the company have retrofitted the entire space with energy-efficient LED light panels as part of the revival of the otherwise vacant building within the community.
“We’re proud to be able to beautifully renovate this old building and operate a growing high-tech business, which brings jobs and economic sustainability to our rural area,” explained CFO and co-owner Whitney Brasington.
The company's new mailing address is: 621 Micaville Loop, Suite 300, Burnsville, N.C. 28714.
