COSHOCTON – Amy Stockdale, executive director of the Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce, was excited to do her second ribbon cutting with J&R Door, LLC.

“My first ribbon cutting seven years ago as director of the chamber was with them,” Stockdale said. “I have to tell you how proud I am to see where they started to being out here and with 19 employees.”

J&R Door recently relocated from its previous and much smaller location on Vine Street to a larger location on U.S. 36 near Wal-Mart. A ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration was held on Aug. 9 to celebrate the move.

“We are happy to have this presence here and for the support of the community all these years,” said Ron Wahl, who operates the business with his brother Brian, who thanked everyone for attending.

“This is great day that was a long-time coming,” Brian said.

Tiffany Swigert, executive director of the Coshocton Port Authority, was excited to see them refurbish a formerly empty building.

“You love Coshocton and enjoy serving us which we appreciate,” she said.

Coshocton County Commissioner Dane Shryock also thanked the Wahls for their involvement in the community.

“It takes a lot of time and guts to do what’ve you done,” Shryock said. “We appreciate what you’ve done for our community and look forward to what you can do in the future.”

Although Coshocton City Mayor Steve Mercer wished the business had remained in the city limits, he was still happy to see them grow.

“Anywhere we can gain employment is good for the city and the county,” he said. “You’ve done well.”

J&R Door is located at 48000 U.S. 36 and can be reached at 740-623-2782. They are open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, visit www.j-rdoor.com.
