A Granite Falls company plans to renovate two historic downtown warehouses as part of a previously announced expansion plan.

 

Amp Services, Inc., which distributes and manufactures LED lighting, and the Town of Granite Falls, will apply for a $400,000 state grant to assist with the renovation to its building at 30 North Main Street, which are expected to cost at least $800,000 over two years.

 

Amp representative Brittany Scruggs said the company will restore the roof, add new dock doors and lighting. The company moved into the building in 2009 after previously beginning operations in the home of owner Austin Powell.

 

The renovations of the warehouse and the one next door at 1 South Main Street, which the company bought in October, are part of a $5-million investment in a three-year expansion plan that the company says will create up to 40 new jobs.
