It’s open! Ceremonial ribbon-cutting marks OPE of America, Inc. Grand Opening

By Kelly Bledsoe
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at OPE of America, Inc. on Saturday, and dozens of people turned out for the celebration. Not only did they show up but many left with new equipment!

The new power equipment store opens with a wide variety of inventory to meet everyone’s needs. OPE of America President David Biesecker, is exited to open the store to the public. “The Denton community has been very welcoming,” he says. And he feels that the new store will add to the local economy. Biesecker has been in the power equipment business for more than 25 years, after starting Lexington Mower Service in 1987 and expanding to include Kannapolis Power Equipment and later Salisbury Power Equipment.

OPE of America, Inc. located at 18870 S. NC Highway 109 (formerly Yadkin Valley Chevrolet and most recently home to High Rock Community Church) is a welcome sight for  Denton. Mayor Larry Ward said, “I am happy to welcome OPE to Denton and we will do all we can to help them succeed.” Chris Biesecker, Vice President of OPE and son of David Biesecker, is excited as well for the opportunity to serve the community of Denton and looks forward to personally getting to know his customers and their needs. Chris is also enthusiastic about the uniqueness of this facility, as the Denton store will serve as a distribution hub for the company’s growing presence in online sales. A good portion of the company’s business is done through online sales via the website
