2015 Distributor Plant Tour Highlights
The Distributor Plant Tours and Golf Event in Houston was a great success, with over 65 members gathering for an exclusive view of the BMC, BlueLinx, and The Detering Company facilities. WMA Members also enjoyed the golf tournament and tour of the NASA Space Center. Before heading home our members enjoyed a dinner event hosted by the Detering family at their beautiful home. The Distributor Plant Tours and Golf Event was a great reminder, and a great example, of some of the benefits WMA can offer its members including Leadership, Networking, and Education.
The Distributor Plant Tours and Golf Event brought millwork leaders and future leaders (GenNEXT members) together. Distributor members opened their doors to their plant facilities while clearly showing their dedication to improving the millwork industry and producing quality products.
Fellow camaraderie, a warm smile and a firm handshake are still the foundation between old friends, as well as new relationships, that developed in Houston (and maybe a round of golf). WMA Members were welcoming to current members and new members.
“As a new member the WMA Distributor Plant Tour and Golf Tournament in Houston was a great event. Well organized as I anticipated! Meeting up with my new member WMA Ambassador at the event took much of the anxiety off early on as a new member. My Ambassador, Rich Fahrner, was awesome, super friendly and welcoming. WMA members in general were very friendly and I had some great conversations with members!”
— Roger Chen, DK Technologies
No matter what your experience level is in the millwork industry, the plant tours presented a unique opportunity for attendees to learn and possibly take home an idea or two to improve their own facility. As a member of WMA, we are all here to grow our business and strengthen our industry. The dedication and passion of our members was clearly evident to all who attended.
“The Houston event was a great event for our company! It was a great opportunity to visit with industry friends, network with industry peers and gain new ideas from touring other millwork facilities.”
— Nathan Potter, CEO, DW Distribution Inc.
WMA is proud to have the most respected professionals in the millwork industry as part of our association. The contributors and efforts of our plant tour hosts, supporters, and attendees is clearly a great example of why WMA is the global leader in the Millwork Industry.
