Main Street of Perry with support from the Mayor and City Council of Perry announce the Business Spotlight award! This award is only given four times a year and is based upon criteria set forth by the Main Street of Perry Economic Restructuring committee and Board of Directors including, but not limited to, exceptional customer service, quality of services or products, involvement in the Perry community, acting as a contributing component to our preservation-based approach to revitalize downtown Perry, etc. Businesses in the downtown Main Street district are eligible for this recognition. Perry's downtown business district is where it all began and we would like to give back to our downtown businesses.
The Business Spotlight Winner for the Fall 2014 is…..
Robert L. Sullivan opened Seawater Trucking, Inc. business in 1980 because his father-in-law began drilling in the Noble County area. With the need for trucks to haul saltwater and fresh water from one drilling rig location to another, his business took off.
There was not an office location until Robert hired lifelong Perry resident, Diana Pagel, in 1985. The first office was located at the yard in an old barn on the Ernest Dolezal place.
In 1987, a downtown business space became available and the office location was moved to the square in a building owned by Dennis and Glenda Mittasch. Once an open space, a wall was later added which made two available offices. Diana has painted the walls and plans to update the lighting soon.
In addition to Diana, Seawater employs six truck drivers. Seawater is a proud supporter of Main Street and the Chamber of Commerce. We are happy to have them as a part of our Main Street District.
