I got the name foundation from the Bible. It’s referenced there many times about a man building a house on a firm foundation. The house will withstand anything because of how it’s built and what it stands on.
My vision for this company is the same – to build a solid company that can withstand and flourish, no matter what the circumstances. We started the business March 1, 2011. Not exactly a building boom, but a chance to get started and set some small and obtainable goals.
As our footprint has grown, our team has remained true to the original vision set by my original partners, John Gorey and Tom Fischbeck, and me. We will stay focused on servicing our customers, working as a team and partnering with our vendors.
I also want to mention our logo and the cypress tree. I wanted something different than a picture of some tools or drywall and metal studs. The cypress tree is a great memory for us of the Pebble Beach area, as well as a symbol of something that has a firm foundation.
My promise to our customers is we will do business with integrity and honesty, strive to be the best every day and never forget we work for you.
To our team members, the goal has to be the best building material company in the industry. We’ll go above and beyond to service our customers and work as a team to accomplish our goals.
As we grow, our principles will not change. We believe in our strategy and will work hard to be the company of choice in the areas we serve.
