How long have you been in the industry? Our business was founded by my grandfather in 1946, and I have been in the industry since 2002.
Tell us a little about your company and what you do. We are a third generation building products supply company serving the professional builder, remodeler, and commercial contractor. We sell a full line of building products including lumber, plywood, EWP, trusses, siding and cornice, roofing, windows and exterior doors, and interior doors and trim. We also provide value-added solutions through our installed services department, providing turnkey solutions for framing, siding, windows and doors, and interior doors and trim.
Tell us an interesting/fun tidbit about your business. We are in year 3 of a 30 year project we call “100 Families in 100 Years.” Our goal is that by our 100th anniversary in 2046 we will partner to do 100 projects in our communities that help 100 families in need. We partner with great organizations like HomeAid, Atlanta Mission, Habitat for Humanity, and Shepherd’s Men through donations and volunteering time. It has really been great to connect our team with our community in a way that makes a difference.
What has been the biggest accomplishment of your career? I can’t attribute any accomplishment of our business to just me. I am incredibly proud of the way our team and our leaders work hard to build, create, and maintain our reputation of high service and high integrity in the market. Growing from one location before the downturn to five locations now while maintaining our core values, culture, and execution of our mission statement (Deliver extra mile service and leave a positive impression through our commitment to the principle, “Strength Lies Within”) is what I am probably most proud of.
