Drexel’s expanding culture of happiness


With a mission of simply supplying happiness --  “Supply. Happiness.” is the actual slogan -- Drexel Building Supply is expanding to Columbus, Wisconsin, where it will soon break ground on its seventh location.

The company plans to open the facility in the spring of 2018, supplying building materials and home design services which include lumber, trusses, cabinets, windows, doors, millwork, decking, roofing, & siding.  It will serve the Greater Madison region, and operate with a 60-mile delivery radius.

Drexel was awarded the Milwaukee Journal Top Work Places Award seven years in a row 2011-17, and is known for their unique culture, and for their focus on family approach when it comes to their team. 

Drexel owner Joel Fleischman states, “building a new home, or tackling a remodeling project is an important time, for some it’s a once in a lifetime investment, it’s Drexel’s mission to supply happiness throughout each project making it a unique, enjoyable, and exciting experience for our clients.” 

Based in Campbellsport, Wisconsin, Drexel serves builders and remodelers, as well as homeowners and DIYers.

The Drexel team is rooted in their team culture, which revolves around their mission to supply happiness and 10 Core Values: Ethics, Respect, Balance, Winning Attitude, Communication, Development, Team Work, Change, Have Fun, and Accountability.

The Columbus location will be led by Team Leader Keith Batenhorst. “We strive to have fun every day, work very hard, and take care of our clients,” he said. “We pride ourselves on our relationships and the happiness we supply to contractors and homeowners.”
