Huntsville, AL, October 14, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Builder magazine's August 2009 issue recognized Jeff Benton Homes (JBH) for its growth during the current economic downturn. While the 2008 housing market is off by 23.5 percent, the huntsville homebuilder
had its best month in its 22-year history. Even among the top-200 builders in the country, Jeff Benton Homes was one of the few homebuilders to increase both revenue and closings during that period.
Jeff Benton Homes' attributes its growth to focusing on the customer, quality, and continual improvements in its marketing and operating areas. As part of his strategy for dealing with challenging economic conditions, the homebuilder has reduced both the average size and cost of his product line by about 10%. Jeff Benton Homes has also upgraded software and systems to handle more volume without increased overhead.
Jeff Benton Homes' founder and owner Jeff Benton, believes his company can sustain this success saying: “We’re dedicated to increasing efficiency. We’re looking to make every aspect of our operation more productive.”
While the overall conditions have been challenging, Huntsville has been fortunate with higher employment rates and growth in the defense industry. These conditions combined with operational and marketing improvements, have put Jeff Benton Homes in a position to continue its growth.
The company enjoys a reputation as a high-quality production homebuilder with a warranty program that Benton takes very seriously. "The company’s production department is dedicated to eliminating warranty issues” said Benton, and continued “no home is closed until its pre-sale inspection has been passed with ‘zero’ problems found."
Builder magazine, a division of Hanley Wood, is one of the nation’s premier publications devoted to the homebuilding industry. Focusing exclusively on North American construction, Builder supports the unique business and information needs of builders, remodelers, residential and commercial architects, and materials dealers and distributors.
