TROY, MI – 1-800-HANSONS has won the 2011 Replacement Contractor of the Year Award from Replacement Contractor Magazine, a publication that serves the roofing, siding and window replacement contracting industry throughout the United States. 1-800-Hansons is the first Michigan contractor to win this national award, which is based on criteria such as:
• Sales growth
• Innovative marketing
• Ethics and customer satisfaction
• Referrals and repeat business
“We are both honored and humbled by this prestigious award that recognizes the best in the industry,” says Brian Elias of 1-800-Hansons. “We work very hard to provide our customers with the best products and service before and after the sale. In this industry it’s all about trust and we work very hard at earning and keeping the trust of our clients. Because of this we receive many referrals and repeat business.”
1-800-HANSONS has posted consistent sales gains throughout the last decade, increasing company sales despite a very bad economy. What the company has learned in this economy is that when it comes to running a complex and multiple location business in a market that’s both economically stagnant and highly competitive, you cannot afford to make any mistakes and that customer satisfaction is job one.
Founded by Elias in 1988 as a one-man operation selling the leads he canvassed, 1-800-HANSONS is one of the industry’s biggest companies. Last year HANSONS’ first location, in Troy, generated a majority of the company’s $49 million 2010 sales. The company continues to grow and each year more revenue comes from branches locations.
