BUSINESS PROFILE 2016
The Story of
WA R E H O U S I N G L L P Steve Mignona was born and raised in the region of Pennsylvania north of Philadelphia. A strongly motivated young entrepreneur, Steve started his first business, The Machine Shop, in 1974 at the age of 19.
Three years later, he started another business, this time in rigging, which involved machinery moving. In time, this business also expanded into machinery sales. Eventually, Steve and his family found their way to Virginia in 2001. Although it was difficult and fraught with obstacles, Steve and his son, Jason, joined forces and began doing business as a team. Coming down to Virginia from the North was a real awakening, but they persevered through the challenges and now have a thriving business. In 2008, they purchased a warehouse at Battersea Lane in Petersburg in which to stage their machinery and equipment, where they also offer business storage options and workspace to provide others with the opportunity to get started with their own businesses.
