Jeff Martin a new business owner in Martinsburg, opened Central Power Equipment earlier this year.

The business is located at 3946 Cove Mountain Road, behind Longs' Outpost in Martinsburg.

Martin repairs equipment and offers equipment for both rental and purchase.

Martin said has always wanted to start this type of business since he was 18.

"I had worked for a company doing maintenance on many kinds of equipment," Martin said. "I realized some businesses would not work on equipment if you had not purchased it from them."

Martin saw this as an opportunity to start a business of his own.

Also, Martin said what equipment is needed for a day or two is costly to buy. So, he did his research by contacting business owners such as Terry Long at T.L. Long Excavating Inc. to see what opportunities were there. He also called other businesses to see what was needed and built his inventory after contacting some of the companies.

With his experience of doing maintenance, Martin decided to try and make a business such as this a reality.

His goal for the future is to expand the business in the rental line and provide service to the local communities. This means having longer hours to accommodate the needs of farmers and other folks who need them.

Some products he carries such as mowers are available for purchase. Power washers, 50-foot lifts and many smaller items are available for rent.

Hours of operation are from 6:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Monday thru Saturday.

For more information, call 793-2886.
