Oil dealer adding garage to accommodate growing business
Hope — M&L Heating Services is growing, in terms of its customer base and its physical footprint.
The company was started in 2011 by Hope residents John Monroe, who also owns Monroe Construction, and Tim Leach, an oil service technician who has more than a decade of experience.
Monroe's wife, Amy Monroe, who works in the office, said the company is now building a garage to house its two oil trucks and one service vehicle. She said M&L wants to get a third oil truck as well. Up to now, the firm's vehicles have been garaged at the owners' homes, Amy said.
With the business doing well, M&L is finally able to add to its physical plant.
“We are growing by leaps and bounds, and we're loving it,” Amy said.
