OAKLEY, OH (FOX19) -
While plow companies may have
taken a hit last winter, they are now looking to make a profit from ‘old man
Ewers and Sons has stockpiled
more than 100 tons of rock salt for use by snow removal contractors and
The staff says one good
snowfall could even wipe out all of their inventory. For this reason, Ewers
& Sons depends on weather forecasters like FOX19's
Jeff Creighton to accurately
order enough salt for the roads.
"Hopefully Jeff will get it
right this time, and we know what's coming and order accordingly," said
The company also sells salt by
the bag to landscapers Joe Childers, who is already making up for last year's
lack of snow.
"We had no snow last year. I
think we only threw salt three or four times last year. This year we've already
banked more than we did last year."
In business terms, Roger Van
Pelt, of Ewers and Sons looks towards the positive side.
"If we do fall off the cliff,
maybe the snow will cushion the blow."
Business may be slow for stores
during winter storms, but snow plow companies will be working around the clock
to keep the roads safe.
