One Response to W & B Service Company Holds Groundbreaking Ceremony

  1. The announcement of W&B’s relocation of their headquarters to Duncanville is a real plus for our City. We appreciate the comments made by John Chisolm about how he decided to stop looking for a site when he met us because we made him feel welcome and wanted. Our Chamber of Commerce is proud to have W&B Service Company as our newest member.
