Showing Off Our New Contractor’s Lounge!

Dallas, TX

Dallas, TX

Recently, our location on Irving Blvd. in Dallas had an Open House on Thursday to showcase its new Contractors Lounge, and it was a huge success!  More than 100 customers were able to enter a random drawing for terrific giveaways such as a 50 inch flat screen TV and many great tools that were donated by our selected vendors.

A free lunch was provided for all the customers, and vendor booths were set up throughout the store.  Thanks to the awesome sales team at Construction Services, the vendors received a record amount of orders.  They all said this was the best Open House they had ever participated in.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this event a fun and successful day!

Recently, our sales staff from Austin, San Antonio, Corpus Christ and Houston took part in a training conducted by Husqvarna in Houston, TX. As part of our commitment to our customer, these training events are paramount to have the most knowledgeable sales staff in the industry.

The training was broken up into two segments; sales training, product knowledge and hands-on product demos. The training included product information and sales approaches our salesmen can use to better help customers find the right solution to fit his need. The hands-on product training allowed the employees to see and use the full line of Husqvarna power tools that we offer.
