Meyer Renovation New Location & Celebration
The Wells County Chamber of Commerce staff and Ambassadors congratulated owner Jason Meyer and his team at Meyer Renovation with a Ribbon Cutting celebrating their new location and 10 years in business. Meyer Renovation is located at 117 West Craig Street in Ossian.
Meyer started working on the side 12 years ago doing small jobs and projects. “It was just me taking bids, quoting, estimating, and doing the jobs and I got so busy in that two years I was able to shift from part time work to full time renovating,” explained Meyer. “I added an employee to take calls and then we just continued to grow. I didn’t have to do any type of marketing for the first 8 years because of the customer referrals.”
Ten years ago, Meyer formed Meyer Renovation working out of his home and over the years adding employees as the project base increased. “We do everything from installing a piece of trim in a house to building a 10,000 sq ft facility from the ground up. No job is too small for us.”
Meyer explained that most of their renovation work are room additions, remodels for residential property, commercial builds, “and everything in between”. “We can do every step for the customer and are a one-stop-shop in the process.” Meyer currently employees up to 30 people which include office staff and sub-contractors with 90% of them being from Wells County.
Area projects Meyer Renovation has completed are the new Toppings Ice Cream Parlor, the wall remodel in front of Parlor City Trophy, Jim’s Barber Shop in downtown Bluffton, Clean Fuels National’s fully remodeled office building, and a new commercial build for the Liecthy Funeral Home in Berne. “We do a lot of lake house remodels in and around Hamilton and Wawasee, recently completed a unique $100k bathroom remodel, and on average we build three residential homes a year,” stated Meyer.
Due to the increase of business Meyer decided to purchase a downtown building in Ossian to move their office staff and conference area out of their home. “We purchased the 6,000 sq ft building on Craig Street about three years ago and have been slowly remodeling. The building was built in the early 1900’s and was in pretty bad shape. In addition to gutting the entire building, a ramp had to be removed because it was an old Chevy dealership maintenance shop. Overall, we built our building inside the structure.”
Meyer is holding a 10 Year Celebration on Saturday, May 8 from 4pm to 8pm. “We will have music by Adam Strack, Taco Heaven Food Truck, a Face Painter, cotton candy, snow cones, and area businesses are welcome to set up booths to participate,” said Meyer. “We wanted to give back to the community that has done so much for us. We hope the community can come out and enjoy the celebration.”
