BURNSVILLE, N.C. — Mountain Electronics, which performs electronics repairs for the commercial laundry industry, reports it moved and expanded its operations this fall to a newly remodeled 10,000-square-foot facility here in western North Carolina.
The company received a $25,000 “Building Reuse Grant” to assist in renovating a vacated textile factory in its county, plus some “On the Job Training” 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,” says co-owner and CEO George Brasington.
“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,” adds co-owner and CFO Whitney Brasington.
Celebrating 20 years in business in 2019, Mountain Electronics specializes in repairing circuit boards used in commercial washers and dryers from the United States and Canada. From its inception, the company’s mission has been to provide excellent repair service for Laundromat customers while maintaining low prices and quick turnaround times.
Sustainability has also been a core value. Not only do Mountain’s repairs help to keep circuit boards and machines out of the landfill, the company also uses recycled and biodegradable paper and packing materials. It owns a 15kW solar array that supplies roughly half of its electricity needs, and now has retrofitted its new facility with energy-efficient LED light panels as part of the revival of a previously vacant building in its community.
