FRESNO — More space for a growing line of products and customers, while also wanting a more visible location, led to Creekside Vinyl opening a new facility at 53363 Township Road 508, just off the intersection of US 36 and Ohio 93.
The business opened in 2005 and recently had a ribbon cutting and open house for its new showroom and warehouse in Fresno. It moved from it’s previous facility on Ohio 751, near County Road 9, at the first of the year. The new location was formerly a warehouse for Wiley Companies.
The family owned and operated business sells poly furniture, barns, composite decking and vinyl and aluminum railing and fencing for retail and wholesale with installation provided. Along with Coshocton County, the business serves the surrounding area in an approximate 60-mile radius, including New Philadelphia, Newark, Cambridge and Zanesville.
Owner Floyd Yoder runs the company with his wife, Marlene, son, Lavon, and full-time employee, Gabe Miller, who started with the move. They also have an installation crew. Floyd worked for a similar company before branching out on his own.
Floyd said they want to move Miller to sales and managing full time and hire someone new for shop work in about a year.
Floyd said while it’s taken some time for customers to find them in their new spot, he feels it will payoff in time. The new facility is also bigger at 20,000-square-feet, as opposed to 14,000-square-feet spread out across a few building previously.
“We didn’t have a lot of traffic and we hoped moving out here will draw more for retail,” he said of the change.
Business has almost doubled since 2019, which Floyd attributes to more people doing home remodeling and wanting to accentuate their outside due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He said building inventory back up is a goal. He said pavilions are a hot item currently and porches are always popular.
“What we’re running into now is we need more stock and it’s harder to keep that here,” Floyd said. “But it is easier to get now than it has been in the last two years.”
