Work Hard / Play Hard
“Work hard, play hard” has been the motto of our company for many years. Whether we are trying to get a job finished on time or trying to win a fishing tournament, we give it our best effort at all times. We constantly challenge ourselves to be the best we can be whether it’s at the Houston Coating Society’s Painters competitions or our regularly scheduled Chili Cook-Offs. In fact, our team won First Place in a recent Painter’s Competition. The team members were Shawn Rogers, Francisco Arredondo and Josh Sawyer. They received a beautiful trophy, cash prizes and a scholarship from SSPC for an Inspector Certification course.
Gartner Company possesses a “family-like” atmosphere that encourages team work and provides a fun environment for work and play. We try to share our good times with family and customers. We regularly schedule Open Houses, fishing trips and cruises on Clear Lake, rodeo and baseball outings. Our customers become friends, and times like these allow us to know them even better. We believe that you only go around once and that you need to enjoy what you are doing!
