No more tile floors, tight spaces, or conference meetings in the kitchen; the renovations are complete!!!! Here are some before and after photos showing our transformation! This used to be part of the warehouse that we have now turned into more work space for everyone. This used to be the wall separating the office from the warehouse. Not anymore. We took down the wall, opening up our office more. We’ve also added more work stations. Remember that old tile?….. …..say “Hello!” to CARPET!!!! Check out our new conference room! From this…. ….to this! Oh, yeah!!!! And don’t forget about Denise’s new office! She is VERY happy! Check out the awesome new chairs that Rusty has in his office now! We even have new “Visitor Parking Only” signs!!
We have the carpets figured out and the color for the main walls (which is the lite blue pictured in the middle), but what dark blue should we choose for the accent wall? Our office gathered together and one by one gave their vote. Everyone had a good reason for why “their” blue should be the color for the accent wall. Should it be Sea Worthy, the blue on the right? Or should it be Indigo Blue, the blue on the left?
It’s extreme makeover time: Filter Pure edition…or should I say Filter Pure additions. After 13 years of being in this location, Filter Pure Systems (FPS) is finally undergoing some new and exciting renovations!! Unlike many others in their industry, FPS has grown considerably in the years since the recession started. FPS started out with one outside sales manager and three inside customer service reps. But now, after thirty years of hard work and determination from Rusty Lowe, Filter Pure is made up of three outside sales managers, five insides sales reps, a remarkably accurate accounting department, a musically talented warehouse crew, and not to forget, Jade, Rusty’s dog. All these new additions have resulted in the need for more space to conduct business. With the desire to grow and expand FPS in the future, Rusty decided it was time to renovate. Everyone is excited to see the new changes. The customer service department made some interesting requests:
- Personal office for everyone with window view
- Individual bathrooms
- Office chairs that massage
- Mini fridges under the desk
- Maybe a microwave
- Pool table in the warehouse
- Maybe a pool outback
- A slide leading to the parking lot
I believe some of these things are being considered…although I did find the list of these suggestions in the trash. The renovations entail the expansion of our main floor which will allow more room for growth, the addition of offices, and a conference room! “We value the communication with our customers,” states April Lancaster, Customer Service Supervisor, “with the new conference room, we will be able to Skype with our international clients better serving them with all their filtration needs.” We will also be getting new carpet and re-painting the walls. We were thinking blue! Get it – water…blue? But with everyone having a difference of opinion on color choices for the walls and flooring, this decision may take a while! We’ve taken pictures throughout the renovation process and wanted to share it with everyone so you can see how Filter Pure is always expanding.
