Henry started ac uiring properties that housed retail stores but expanded to other com mercial properties and industrial lands.

Recent rezoning of adjacent lands and construction of new access has opened another 5 acres for expansion of the Business Park. Since Eddie’s death, Tom Burley, CPA has been CEO. Under his direction, the company has divested certain non core properties and invested in income producing assets and commenced development of vacant land.
