Drives Move to New Location
SYKESVILLE, Maryland, November 8, 2005 – In this, the year of their 25th Anniversary, it seems appropriate that S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows, would choose to expand their offices to a new, more spacious location. Appropriate, yes, but not planned – a theme that has been consistent throughout S&K’s amazing 25 year history.
“Growth and success has always been our goal, but I can’t say that there has been a master plan,” says Don Katzenberger, owner and Chief Operating Officer, “other than doing everything in our power to meet and exceed our client’s expectations. We’ve done that well over the years, and the increase in business has resulted in additions to our staff, services and product lines. So when the opportunity to move to a new, larger location came up this year, we acted.”
Now operating throughout Maryland, S&K (www.SKRoofing.com) started out as a local roofing company, but quickly transformed to meet the needs of their growing client base and the expanding Maryland housing market. They are now one of the most successful and fastest growing leaders in the Maryland home improvement industry with an estimated $15M in projected revenues in 2005.
S&K Vice President and CFO Maija Kropp adds, “Don is being modest, but he is right. While there is no ‘master plan’, there are well thought-out and wonderfully executed activities that happen on a day-to-day basis that contribute to our success. We are based 100% on meeting the needs of our clients, which includes high quality work, superior products, expert craftsmanship and a knowledgeable office staff. We have also implemented a number of ways of reaching Maryland homeowners including a useful website, money saving coupons and referral programs.”
What they are doing is working. The increase in business has resulted in the expansion of their headquarters in Sykesville, Maryland, to a new 7,800 square foot location on Liberty Road. The “new” building for S&K is 3 miles east of their existing location at 5399 Enterprise Street in Eldersburg. The building was formerly occupied by the Country Companions store.
S&K will be renovating the building this Fall and expects to move in January, 2006. Renovations will include upstairs offices, a 2,000 square foot lower level Home Improvement Solution Center, as well as two lower level retail store locations.
A State-of-the-Art Home Improvement Solutions Center
Perhaps the most exciting part of the expansion is the Home Improvement Solutions Center. On the inside of the Solutions Center, S&K plans to construct “working models” for many of their products including roofing, siding, gutters, windows, doors and decking. The Solutions Center will be open on Saturdays for homeowners’ convenience, and will feature a private conference area where homeowners can discuss home improvement plans and ideas with S&K’s experts with product samples on hand.
The exterior of the building and Solutions Center will also feature many of the products that S&K offers including metal roofing, architectural windows, doors, siding and maintenance-free decking.
