High Angle Driveline:  First Completed Commercial Business Rebuild

Jesse and Tammy Jaynes, owners of High Angle Driveline, have been Ridge residents for over 40 years. While their home survived, their business did not. They filed a permit in late fall of 2019 and broke ground in January of 2020.  May of this year marked the completion and opening of the business at the original location: 7245 Clark Road.  It is the first completed steel frame commercial rebuild in Town.  To learn more, visit the Make it Paradise blog
