The small company sells commercial and residential stucco, tile, and stone products to contractors across the country.
A recent report by the Associated Press found construction projects increasing nationwide, with hot markets in North Dakota, Utah, Houston and Miami. It also says some contractors are offering signing bonuses of $5,000 to $10,000 for skilled workers.
Longstreet says things are great now, but the 2008 economic crisis had them troubled. With fewer customers, things looked bleak.
But now the company is getting so much business, it’s moving out of a 15,000-square-foot warehouse in Rancho Cordova and into a 50,000-square-foot facility in South Sacramento. The sales manager anticipates even better days ahead.
“We’re happy to bring in more jobs from Sacramento into our location. We love Sacramento this is where we’ve made a lot of our growth happen,” he said.MORE NEWS: Woman Shot In Sacramento Early Thursday Morning
