Local Contractor, The Drying Company/ThermalTec, Continues to Grow

The Drying Company has found a new home in Stonehouse Industrial Park at 3005 John Deere Rd. Toano, VA 23168.

The Drying Company has found a new home in Stonehouse Industrial Park at 3005 John Deere Rd. Toano, VA 23168.

Since 2002, Toano has been home to local contractor, The Drying Company/ThermalTec. In 2014 the business’ growth prompted a move from Toano Business Center on Richmond Rd. to their current address at 236 Industrial Blvd. Toano, VA 23168. The company continued to grow and soon occupied 3 buildings on Industrial Blvd.

As their growth continued, the need for more office and warehouse space became more pressing. In 2020, Owners Steve and Tyler Tetreault began the search for a new home for The Drying Co. that would facilitate the growth of the business.

After a year of negotiations, the father and son duo, Steve and Tyler closed on their new home on July 14, 2021, at 3005 John Deere Rd. in Toano, VA. Some may be familiar with this building as the Design Masters offices, which will continue to occupy a portion of the building.

“It’s been exciting to grow our business and team over the years. Starting out, we were in a small office/warehouse on Richmond Rd. and at the time we had less than 20 employees. Since then, we have grown to more than 60 employees and are still looking to grow our team further. We’re excited to move into a space that will allow us to continue to grow and better serve our customers.” Remarks Owner, Steven Tetreault on the relocation.

While there is no firm moving date for the company, the business expects to be in their new building by the end of 2021. “One of the best parts about watching the business grow is being able to bring new talent to our Drying Co. family and offer employment opportunities to our community.” Says co-owner Tyler Tetreault.   

The Drying Company is a home improvement company that specializes in fixing Attics, Basements, Crawl Spaces, Foundations, & Gutters. To learn more about the company, visit or contact them at 757-566-8622 / 804-823-1290.
