Through the years, the company has added components to the business such as kitchen design, retail showrooms, manufacturing, and e-Commerce, while constantly trying to improve the product selection, delivery capabilities, and overall company focus on “Best Service” to its core pro customers.
“We have worked hard, of course, but our real focus is on gratitude right now,” Plummer said. “You can only build a durable business in our industry if you work hard, stay focused, and have good team members, good customers, good vendor relationships, and good bank relationships. We’ve been tremendously blessed that we have those four things. So, what today is really about is saying ‘thank you’ to them. Donna and I want to thank each and every one of our great team members, customers, vendors, bankers, and other partners that work with us every day and helped us grow this company for the last 45 years.”
