A company with Greenwood ties is expanding in Columbus.
Greenwood businessman Marty Harriman opened the first Rhino Linings in Columbus, when the company was mostly known for doing spray-on protective coatings for truck beds, trailers, all-terrain and recreational vehicles. Harriman owned six of the franchises at one time, and eventually sold all of them.
Now, the newly named RLC Truck and Auto Accessories has evolved into a seven-employee operation and a one-stop automotive aftermarket products shop from WeatherTech and Double Diamond.
In addition, the company has expanded into offering concrete coatings for garage floors, as well as for pool decks, basements and patios, owner Brett Cruser said.
The new location has almost 11,000 square feet of space — about 3,000 more than its former location, Cruser said.
One new employee was added with the move, but Cruser said he anticipates more hiring as his customer base continues to grow.
