GRANBURY, TX – Highway 51 welcomes a new neighbor, Built to Last, into the long-vacant commercial site previously occupied by Equi-Brand. A well-established manufacturer of high-quality outside furniture, Built to Last, has been the main supplier to the finest homes along the Outer Banks in North Carolina for more than two decades.
Daniel W. Aston, Managing Partner, thanks several entities for making this corporate expansion possible, “We are extremely grateful to Mike Scott and Shea Hopkins of the Granbury Chamber of Commerce. Their counsel and friendship were paramount in this process. In addition, Steve Cook of RE/MAX Lake Granbury was also key in handling the real estate side of the transaction. Built to Last recognizes that none of this would have come to pass without the leadership of the City Council, City Manager and City Staff.”
Chamber President and CEO, Mike Scott, says Built to Last will have both an immediate and long-term positive effect on the City. “Thanks to his tenacity and “get it done” attitude Daniel W. Aston and “BTL” will help create an impressive gateway to Granbury on Highway 51. A longtime vacant distraction will be turned into a showroom and manufacturing plant for some of the best outdoor furniture in the world. The challenging process of remodeling a long-vacant building has already reaped development rewards as the city planning department considered and made business-friendly modifications to their landscape and tree ordinance. The Chamber takes great pleasure in having partnered with Built to Last and the City of Granbury in this exciting addition to our community.”
“We’re excited to welcome Built to Last to Granbury,” says Shea Hopkins, Vice President of Economic Development with the Chamber. “With over $5 million in capital investment, the creation of 30 jobs initially and planned future growth, this is definitely a win-win for the residents and businesses of Hood County.”
Scott Sopchak, Community Development Director for the City of Granbury, says the City is pleased with Built to Last’s plans. “The application proposal voted on and accepted by both the Granbury’s Planning Commission and City Council, included a site plan with building elevations depicting the site upgrades and improvements, as proposed by Mr. Aston. We are definitely happy that they’ve chosen Granbury as their preferred location to expand their business.”
