FlashCo Recognized as One of the Best Places to Work in North Bay Area

FlashCo Manufacturing Inc., headquartered in Santa Rosa, Calif., was recently named one of the 100 best places to work in the North Bay by the North Bay Business Journal. FlashCo was recognized as an exceptional employer with excellent workplace practices.

“FlashCo has been growing at a steady pace,” said FlashCo President Greg Morrow. “That growth and success can be directly attributed to our employees. We’re a team, spread out throughout the country dedicated to the principle that we can save the contractor time. We’ve worked hard to develop a company culture around our core values of integrity, respect, customer satisfaction and can-do attitude.”

The North Bay Business Journal makes its best places to work selections based on employer nominations and employee surveys. The employee surveys include questions related to employer credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. The 100 winners were chosen from over 8,100 employee surveys submitted. FlashCo is one of 21 first-time winners in the annual survey.

“Our employees and their success are the backbone of our company,” said Morrow. “While
some employees come here with experience, others receive training on the job, giving them a
marketable, in-demand skill that can lead to a lifelong career supporting the roofing industry.”

FlashCo Acquires Dick’s Lead Shop

FlashCo Manufacturing Inc. completed the acquisition of Dick’s Lead Shop from owner Dick Stolz. The acquisition expands FlashCo’s footprint in the Northwest that is served by their Woodland, Wash., location. After 40 years of building and selling lead flashings to roofers in Washington and other western states, Stolz decided it was the right time to retire and FlashCo was the right organization to purchase his business.

“I have known Dick for 25 years,” says FlashCo CEO Greg Morrow. “I originally sold him sheet lead when I was working in the Washington area and I kept in touch with him as I started and grew FlashCo. We’ve always had a mutual respect for one another and this was a good fit with Dick’s passion for his customers.”

“I started the business in 1976 and I have enjoyed building flashings since then,” says Stolz. “I built the business on hard work, a good product and good service, all the things that my customers will enjoy with FlashCo. I’m happy for FlashCo to carry on the business while I’ll have more time for fishing, golfing and traveling with my wife.”

FlashCo completed the acquisition on Oct. 21, 2015. Stolz began notifying his customers and FlashCo is transitioning them to its full product lineup of standard and custom flashings for commercial and residential roofers.

“We are excited to have completed this acquisition,” says FlashCo Director of Sales Bill Bartell. “Our business is built on saving the contractor time. We do that through our commitment to customer satisfaction, respect, integrity and a can-do attitude. These are core values that Dick’s customers have come to expect from him and they will find the same core values with FlashCo.”
