Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.
That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.
And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.
Larkman Construction purchased warehouse and office space on two adjacent sites in Raymond, 12000 Highway G and 1596 122nd St. The company provides a variety of utility services and is one of three companies licensed for manhole work in Wisconsin.
Larkman Construction’s owner, Stacy Potter, was able to finance 90 percent of the purchases by utilizing the Racine County Revolving Loan Fund, provided by services through the Business Lending Partners in partnership with Commerce State Bank. Evan Gilmore, Vice President of Commercial Lending State Bank, now oversees the loan provided to Potter.
“Increasing the services we provide also meant increasing the space we need to operate,” said Potter. “Moving to Racine County allowed us to consolidate our operations and increase efficiency, while also leaving space for us to grow.”
As a result of the move and the financial help provided, six new jobs will be available.
