Siblings Mindy and Jason Sevinor check out new products at recent industry conference in Florida.
I’m recently back from attending an annual conference with my sister Mindy. What makes this gathering special is the attendees are all from independent plumbing fixture showrooms around the country. The members of this group are all committed to offering high caliber products and exceptional service. We believe that keeping our companies family-owned makes a difference in the showroom experience and the attention to detail demonstrated by our employees. I am always inspired by this group of like-minded professionals. We share stories of best practices, as well as mistakes we’ve made, and learn from each other. It’s a challenge to stay small in a world that seems to reward big businesses, but we believe the environment we create for our employees and clients sets the stage for long-term relationships and customer loyalty.
Our inclusion in this consortium helps us to offer competitive prices and a great breadth and depth of products. In the photo above, we are personally putting a new line of tubs from Landmade to the test. Mindy and I enthusiastically approved of the look and style. They are beautiful and comfortable! We have two on display in Beverly and two more slated for Watertown.
Although it’s great to discover amazing new products at the conference and meet with old friends, the best part was getting to spend quality time with my sister. Our days are busy, and we don’t get to catch up and creatively brainstorm for the business as much as we would like. This trip gave us the opportunity to connect and laugh. I’m really grateful for that, thank you Mindy!
Our guest blogger for March is a talented designer who has collaborated with us for many years. We are always glad to be involved in her projects.
Stacey Clarimundo launched Found Design Studio in 2018 after more than 18 years of experience in the architecture and design industry. Shortly after, she and her team expanded to offer not only a full-service studio, but also a retail space. We hope you find inspiration from Stacey’s picks from our showroom.
All the Best,
