CCCC helps Siler City man start own business

Start a conversation about fixing hydraulic hose blowouts, replacing O-rings and welding broken rock-crusher teeth and you’ve got Jeronimo Prieto Medina’s attention. That’s the kind of hands-on work he loves. For 11 years, he used his skills to maintain and repair heavy equipment as an employee for several companies. In 2009, he started his own company, JP Mechanic and Welding, working out of his Siler City home.
