Celebration! Earlier this week Semco celebrated the grand opening of our new Masonry Lodge with barbecue, baseball and brews!
From mid-afternoon until late into the night, the Semco crew and all of our Columbus area friends got together to take a first look at the new building. Plus we got to cheer on the Columbus Royals in their amazing World Series run.
The idea of the lodge is to make it easy for contractors to pick up everything they need for a job at one time in one convenient location. Essentially, we have all the basic supplies that any stone worker might need, no matter the job. And we’ve got them in bulk!
There’s no more waiting for hardware stores and other suppliers to dig through their inventories. A lot of our contractors told us that they were tired of trekking across town and keeping track of the expenses at so many different places, so we decided it was time to make it easier for them.
As long as the contractor lets Semco know ahead of time what they need, there’s no waiting whatsoever, and they won’t even have to lift a finger as we load their trucks for them. All the contractor has to do is give us a call, let us know what he or she needs and show up with a truck (or request delivery).
With this major addition to our inventory and services, contractors will have even more reasons to love working with us. Plus, everyone knows that Semco throws the best parties in town and we always invite our friends!
The brick-oven-fired pizza was a fan favorite. They only took about 2 minutes each to make – a very important fact considering that there was never any of the previous pizza left when the next one was ready!
We have to give a big thanks to everyone who attended and made it such a success! We look forward to working with you all in the future and making your jobs easier!
