With the coming of the New Year, I look back at 2011 as a year of great change at Statewide Remodeling. After the very difficult years of 2009 and 2010, Statewide had an excellent 2011, getting back to the revenue of our banner year of 2007. We had a record year for the number of installed jobs, and the addition of our new product lines over the last three years created opportunities for many of our previous customers to add additional home improvements through Statewide.
In February, our Austin office moved in to a new office, allowing us to show our full product line for the first time in our beautiful 2300 square foot showroom. The new 16,000 sq. ft. warehouse space has allowed us to bring in more inventories to service our customers better. In August, our Dallas office moved in to a new 41,000 sq. ft. space on the north side of DFW airport, allowing us to consolidate our Administrative and Production offices under one roof for the first time in seven years. The increased efficiency of this new location has been evident from the beginning of our move. Our new 5,000 sq. ft. showroom allows customers to come in and see full sized displays of all of our product line, as well as having selection centers for our bathroom and kitchen divisions.
We look forward to an even better 2012, with expansion of our market area in to San Antonio and Houston. I would like to thank all of the Statewide Remodeling associates for their dedication and hard work for making our business successful, and to our over 25,000 customers for allowing us to work on their homes. I am proud of the fact we received the Consumers’ Choice Award for all four of our product lines for the sixth straight year, and are rated as one of the top 25 home improvement companies in America by both Qualified Remodeling and Remodeling Magazine. We couldn’t have done it without you, our customers.Rob Levin President
