Highlands Business Park Occupants

Highlands Business Park has two occupants and 11 lots available for development.

In 2010, a Washington County business, General Engineering, expanded its operations and built a 50,000 square foot facility in the park. The park’s first tenant was Appalachian Power Company that operates a regional service center from the park.

When General Engineering Co., a manufacturer of hydraulic cylinders used primarily in the mining, construction, water well, and gas/oil exploration industries, outgrew its facility in Washington County, company President John Owens began looking for an expansion site to house large equipment that would allow the company to take advantage of “high production cycle manufacturing.” Owens said his company also looked in West Virginia and Tennessee for a new site, but decided to expand in Highlands Business Park in a five to seven-year time frame. Phase one of the expansion was the construction of a 50,000 square foot building on a 20-acre lot in the park. “With growth comes the need for additional floor space and new equipment, and this expansion allows us to access the newest technology in high production manufacturing,” said Owens.
