ProBuild constructs new website

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Denver-based ProBuild redesigned its website, adding new features and functionality to streamline information access and better serve its customers, the company said.

With research gathered customer focus groups, the Denver-based pro dealer added search capabilities to ProBuild.com that provide customers with specific product and service information down to the store level.

“Although we have hundreds of stores nationwide, we know that each customer’s needs are different, each market is different and each building project is unique. ProBuild.com now reflects that differentiation,” said Lisa Petersen, vice president of marketing for ProBuild. “By customizing content by segment, customers can find specific, local information for their immediate needs.”

The enhanced search functionality enables customers to receive specific updates and product detail in their local markets, while still maintaining ready-access to the wealth of news and expertise across the company. The website also features expanded product categories with more detailed information and specifications for high-demand products, such as kitchen and bathroom cabinets, millwork, windows and doors. 

“The redesign is based on in-depth customer focus groups that were held in 2010," said Petersen. "This newly redesigned company website is just one way ProBuild has listened and responded to customer feedback and needs."

Fastenal settles GSA dispute

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Winona, Minn.-based fastener distributor, Fastenal, announced it has sighed a settlement agreement in a case filed against it by the United States General Services Administration (GSA).

Under terms of the agreement, Fastenal will make an immediate one-time payment of $6.25 million.

According to the release, the company had a contract with GSA between 2000 and 2005. After conducting an audit in 2006, the GSA alleged Fastenal had not complied with certain pricing and product requirement provisions, and had potentially overcharged government customers under the contract.

Fastenal continues to believe they complied with their obligation under the contract, but felt a continuation of the dispute was not the best use of resources.

The EEOC charged that a Marjam supervisor and other Marjam employees made unwelcome racial slurs and comments. The racially hostile workplace included repeatedly calling an employee the N-word, talking about the Ku Klux Klan and referring to burning crosses in front of African American employees. An employee who complained was fired, the EEOC’s lawsuit charged. Such alleged conduct violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. Toyota key replacement
