2011 presented our company with the biggest challenge it has ever faced, and at the same time, the greatest opportunity. As a company and family, we have always believed that when life gives you lemons you make lemonade. On April 27th 2011, we received a tremendous amount of lemons in the form of an EF4 tornado. It was during the aftermath of this devastating event that we, as a united working family, decided to rebuild and rename Montgomery Woodworks. Remmert & Company reflects our owner and team of committed employees who worked together to re-establish our business after the destruction.We are the same faces, have the same core business, and offer the same services as we have for the past 65 years, but we are now stamping everything we do with our name.
On April 28th, 2011, the employees of Montgomery Woodworks came to work as usual; however, we knew that on this day that we would not be building anything. Instead, we came in ready to salvage what we could and cleanup the damage left after the onslaught of the tornado. We salvaged work in process, tools, machines, computers, drawings… all from a building that looked as if it had been torn apart by war. Once cleanup was complete, we quickly went to work planning on how to rebuild. It took a year, but what has been rebuilt is a larger, more efficient, more streamlined production facility and corporate offices. Where it was hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel in the early summer of 2011 now stands all the building blocks needed for Remmert & Company to continue servicing our customer’s current and evolving needs. As a reignited company emerging from the rubble, we wanted our name to reflect the passion and excitement we have about the future of our business.
We are a family business. Owner, Bill Remmert, strives to make everyone at Remmert & Company feel like a member of the family and an invaluable part of the company. Behind everything we manufacture, install, and furnish are the Remmerts and all the team members of the company. All of us thank you for your past business under our former banner Montgomery Woodworks, and we look forward to serving you in the future as Remmert & Company.
