Tucker-Castleberry -- Relationships Do Matter
Continuous improvement is a quest at Tucker-Castleberry, the bolstering of state-of-the-art equipment, as well as the people behind the gear. Falling back on past accomplishments is not the forward-looking statement Tucker wants to make.
Tucker has a clear view for the future, including a plan of succession. Kent Tucker, Tuck's son, became the third generation member to work at the family business in 2000 after graduating from the University of Georgia with a business degree. After stints as an estimator and running production, he joined sales upon gaining full-time status. Tuck Tucker hopes to see his son take the Tucker-Castleberry reins one day.
In the short term, Tucker-Castleberry's goal is to continue moderate growth and add more local business to its current mix. And Tucker is confident the capabilities of his employee base will make that happen.
"We have dedicated employees who don't mind going the extra mile to please a customer," Tucker remarks. "We promote from within as much as possible, giving everyone a chance for advancement. And each person is expected to do their job, take responsibility, maintain integrity and be fully committed."
