Customer Relationships Key to GreenWood's 18 Years in Business

A Customer-Centered Philosophy and a Focus on Safety Ensure Success.

Greenville, SC, January 07, 2009 --( GreenWood, Inc., an integrated maintenance and construction solutions provider, recently marked their 18th year in business of serving customers throughout the Southeast. From the company’s beginnings, GreenWood learned that treating customers and employees like family would form lasting relationships. At the same time, four core values were developed that continue to serve as the foundation of how business is conducted at GreenWood today: work safely, satisfy the customer, make money and have fun.

Eighteen years later and one can see the results through 40 project locations in seven states with a work force of nearly 800 dedicated employees. A strong benefits program, flexible work approach, high quality services and employee recognition programs help keep GreenWood as the contractor of choice with their customers. As a result, turnover has remained low over the years and customer loyalty very strong.

“It may seem simple, but it takes hard work to stay focused and that’s what we instill through our core values,” says John Wood, GreenWood CEO. “Every attempt is made to listen to our customers and employees because we recognize GreenWood would not exist without them. Even with a wavering economy today, we have a solid customer base with several planning renovations, upgrades and more to their facilities and production equipment. That’s evidence of progressive companies forging ahead and we’re pleased they continue to place their confidence in our services.”
