Ron’s Service Station received a $90,000 loan through the NEPA Alliance Tri-District loan fund as part of a total project costing $200,000 for the purchase of land & building. Other project funds consisted of a $90,000 loan from First Keystone Community Bank and a $20,000 equity injection from the borrower. This project was brought to NEPA Alliance through our partnership with the Wilkes University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and the PREP network.
Ron’s Service Station is owned by Ron May Jr. and his wife, Brenda. With the help of NEPA’s funds, Ron Jr. and Brenda were able to purchase the business from Ron’s father, Ron May Sr., who had run the business as “Ronnie’s Service Station” since 1968. The business is a full-service auto and truck repair facility that offers complete car care in one location. The service station offers oil changes, tire rotations, brake and suspension repair, heating and air conditioning repair, exhaust repair, Pennsylvania state safety inspections, and computerized diagnostic repair. Ron’s Service station has 6,400 square feet of space equipped with all the machinery their technicians need to properly service vehicles.
NEPA Alliance is a full service economic development lender offering 9 low interest loan programs for job creation and job retention in our region.
