Sales managers from throughout the Foundation Supportworks dealer network attended a training event on July 13th and 14th in Omaha, Nebraska. Approximately 30 sales managers and business owners from throughout the United States and Canada were in attendance. The event included round table discussions, large group discussions, team building activities, networking opportunities and social interaction. The attendees helped set the agenda by determining which issues were most common in their day-to-day activities. Some topics discussed included: hiring new employees, training new inspectors, keeping sales people motivated, setting goals, running effective meetings, and more.
Mount Valley Foundation Services, located in Columbia, South Carolina, has joined the Foundation Supportworks international dealer network. Mount Valley has been stabilizing residential and commercial properties for almost 30 years, and is recognized as the largest foundation repair company in the state of South Carolina. Prior to becoming a dealer for Foundation Supportworks, Mount Valley had been manufacturing their own stabilization systems under the Drive Rite Piering Systems brand in their 60,000 square foot facility adjacent to their offices. Owner, Alan Gantt, and General Manager, Edwin Moore, said the decision to join the Foundation Supportworks network was due in large part to the sales, marketing, and training support that is available to help their company grow in the future. “We began to realize that too much of our time was being spent on the manufacturing side of our business, instead of focusing on the area’s that will allow our company to grow,” said Moore. “The different levels of support that are accessible to us through Foundation Supportworks are unlike anything we have seen in the foundation repair industry before. At the end of the day, we simply feel this partnership gives Mount Valley the best opportunity to reach our goals in the years to come.”
Foundation Supportworks is excited to have Mount Valley Foundation Services join our network of foundation repair contractors. Their knowledge, experience, and solid reputation in the Southeast will help to further position our company as the leader in the foundation stabilization industry.
