Roger Kreps Drywall & Plastering Announces 25th Anniversary
10/7/2009

An anchor business in the eastern Ohio region has reached an important milestone: 25 years of business. Roger Kreps Drywall & Plastering, Inc. announced today that his company will reach that milestone on October 15.

Roger Kreps Drywall, based in Boardman, Ohio, specializes in drywall, metal studs, acoustic, EIFS, and carpentry work. Its work is found in a myriad of structures, ranging from K-12 and post-secondary education buildings, healthcare facilities, restaurants, corporate and retail structures, churches, and more. The company is an important anchor in the local economic landscape, as it employs between 60-90 employees that consist of office and field staff. Company owner, Roger Kreps, and his wife Mary Ann – who serves as company secretary/treasurer – are also strong supporters of community activities.

For the past 13 years, Roger Kreps Drywall has played an important role in helping with a golf outing to raise money for scholarships to help with college tuition. This effort is based on a memorial fund for Vincent Troiano, an employee who died of leukemia. This scholarship was founded by the field employees of Roger Kreps Drywall. To date, the fund has awarded more than $32,000.

Helping the community and its employees comes naturally to Kreps, who is a native of Boardman and a former teacher and coach at West Branch High School. “Our employees mean everything to us,” Roger Kreps said. “We in no way get to 25 years of success without the talent, dedication and loyalty of our staff. They are ones who should be congratulated for reaching this important milepost. I simply open the door to opportunities. Our employees are the ones that make the operation successful.”

The company’s success over the years is evident by the several letters of thanks, governmental resolutions and media coverage found in the company boardroom. Most recently, Roger Kreps Drywall won the Mahoning Valley Growth Award for capturing a steady increase in business.

Roger Kreps Drywall is also an active member of The Builders (www.thebuildersonline.com), which represents employers in Trumbull, Columbiana and Mahoning counties in eastern Ohio, and Mercer and Lawrence counties in western Pennsylvania, The Builders services 15 different skilled trades in the region, and is an ongoing resource for union construction contractors.

“Roger Kreps Drywall is the perfect prototype of a successful construction company, because of its attention to detail, honesty, customer service, and the relationships it has built throughout the local construction industry,” said Kevin Reilly, Executive Vice President of The Builders. “I am not surprised that Roger is about to celebrate 25 years in business and I wouldn’t be surprised if the company achieves many more milestones in years to come.”
