Some excerpts from our entry form.

    "Fourshee Building Supply determines to operate all its business practices in an honest and forthright manner.  It is important to treat our customers with honesty and integrity.  They are our sole means of existence."

    "Tommy Fourshee built this business on grit and determination.  He was aware from the beginning that the respect of his neighbors was far more important to the longevity of his fledgling business than turning a quick profit. He strove to provide quality service and materials at a fair price.  This is the old fashioned, tried and true model our firm uses today."

    "Equally important is our relationship with our vendors. First and foremost all bills must be paid on time.  No vendor is to be considered a bank.  If extended credit is needed it is our responsibility to make arrangements with the bank and not impose on the kindness of our suppliers. I cannot think of an incident in which a vendor was not paid in a timely manor in our 48-year history.  A good credit rating is a sizeable part of having a good name."

    "The face of our business, seen by the public, literally is the face of our employees.  A third of our employees have been with us over 25 years.  Frequently a customer mistakes them as the owner.   It is easy to see why it is vital that our employees represent the same standards that our firm promotes.

    We believe that the longevity of our employees demonstrates their satisfaction and pleasure of being a part of Fourshee Building Supply.  Their personal standards are not compromised by conflicting standards of the firm.  We are proud of our employees."

    "This award will offer reassurance to our customers and vendors that indeed, we are different, that our principles are exemplary. That we subscribe to a set of ideals that, by our own choosing, cause us to be measured by higher standards."
