Nyhus Enterprises Expand
Nyhus Enterprises, 14248 109th Ave., Chippewa Falls, is in the process of nearly doubling the size of its existing 8,000-square-foot facility to accommodate its growing business in the sandblasting and paint booth industry.
According to Owner Eric Nyhus, who founded the company with his wife, Ashley, in January, 2010, the firm started out as a mobile washing operation for Waste Management.
"We washed their trucks from Milwakee to Ashland. Later, we started painting dumpsters and then started painting trucks for Advanced Disposal. Now, we also do plastic media blasting for local companies in the plastics industry, " said Eric Nyhus, who will be adding sandblasting and paint booths in the 5,400-square-foot addition.
"We purchased the former Proud Excavating property through foreclosure in 2011 and we hope to be in the completed facility by mid-December, " said Nyhus, who has six employees.
