Niche Biz: Backyard Storage

The sales brochures include small, colorful backyard storage sheds to deluxe 36- by 50-foot horse barns and whatever there is in between.

Salem Structures LLC has been located at 2880 state Route 45 since mid-April and owner and General Manager Aaron Martin said Monday that business has been good.

“We specialize in all sizes of storage for the backyard,” he said. “We’re slowly ramping up and adding more as time goes on. We work mostly with Amish builders who do the construction.”

Salem Structures also does some construction on its own. Martin said they also sell gazebos and “pretty much anything for the backyard.”

“There’s been a saying through the years, ‘a person has a three-car garage but no place to park the car and they come to us and they have a place to park it.'”

It’s a family business, employing three people and Martin works from the Salem office with sales manager Ken Strite who mans the desk in the showroom.
