Chesapeake business celebrates 40 years of success
Damuth Trane recently celebrated 40 Years in business in Hampton Roads at the Chesapeake Conference Center. Damuth Trane opened its doors in a small office that employed eight associates in Virginia Beach in 1970 and has grown to over 165 associates in a 50,000 square feet facility in Chesapeake. Chesapeake Mayor Alan Krasnoff, who attended the event, commented on the company's longevity, as well as the tenure of its employees, one of whom has remained with the firm for 38 years.
