[Ross & Witmer]
Family Firm Finds Charlotte’s Comfort Zone
Ross & Witmer is now a 3rd generation-owned company whose principals are doing business with other 3rd-generationers. Like their fathers, these guys grew up doing odd jobs in the business. They’re not a lot of hype, not a flash-in-the pan, just a good solid family-owned company doing quality work and striving for customer satisfaction.
