Appalachian Truss designs, builds and delivers high quality floor and roof trusses, specialty hangers, fasteners and LVL’s (laminated veneer lumber) for the construction industry, local builder supply stores, architects and home designers.
A new facility was built in 2015 focusing on growing the business which consists of a 12,500 SF building (11,500 SF for manufacturing space and a 1,000 SF of office space), along with a new 1,700 SF lumber storage building. There is ample space for the movement of materials and finished products along with the loading of the company delivery vehicles and the unloading of supply vehicles.
The company also recently purchased a truss component automated saw that will allow the business to take on even more of the available work without the necessity of bringing on additional personnel.
