Sometimes, a small request leads to big opportunities.
In February, a Richmond designer who often partners with H.J. Holtz & Son asked Carpentry Division Manager Jeff Nonnemacker if someone at the company could build, from scratch, an open end table with shelves, using a photo for guidance.
The designer’s client had a specific need, and the table the client had found was on back order – with a delivery date months in the future. Knowing of the Holtz carpentry team’s ability to repair and replace interior woodwork, the designer wondered if the table could be made in-house.
More than ever, the door is open to new employees at H.J. Holtz & Son.
With increasing demand for painting, carpentry and wallpaper services, Rick Holtz, company president of H.J. Holtz & Son, says he is reaching out to prospective employees as much as prospective customers.
“We need to keep at [hiring] consistently,” Holtz says, noting that the greatest pressure is in the carpentry division, which has expanded dramatically over the last two years.
