0207 apple sign
WARREN DILLAWAY | Star Beacon
A sign on the old Apple Heating building is removed by David Ringeis (left) and Gary Clark, both of Blind and Sons Heating and Cooling that formerly purchased the business. Apple Heating was started in 1985 by David Pinelli and Scott Robinson and eventually employed 35 people and in 2012 was awarded a Best of the County award by Growth Partnership of Ashtabula County. Loretta Pinelli, owner of the building, said a landscaping business is leasing part of the building and she hopes to have more businesses lease space in the building.
