Drexel Named the 2015 Wisconsin Lumber Dealer Association Lumber Dealer of the Year
The Wisconsin Lumber Dealer Association named Drexel Building Supply the 2015 WRLA Dealer of the year. The award is presented annually to a member dealer who exhibits top-notch professionalism, a passion for their business and the industry and also a commitment to the Northwestern Lumber Association (NLA).
Drexel, 2015 Wisconsin Lumber Dealer of the Year has been around since 1985. Albert and Joan Fleischman started their business in a small farming community in Southeastern Wisconsin, called Campbellsport Building Supply. As they grew into 6 locations and nearly 200 team members currently, the company now called Drexel has been a TopWorkplace in Wisconsin for 3 years and been in the INC 500 magazine for one of the top growing companies in the nation.
Many Drexel Team members have been in the industry their whole life, Many are ex-carpenters that wanted to be on the other side of the business. But they are also coffee baristas, teachers, massage therapists, sausage salesman, bar owners, teachers, pilots, and of course much more. Characters are always welcome at Drexel. Drexel looks for the best people, not necessarily those with the best experience. They have to bleed blue to stick around. Drexel empowers them to wow the customer, the community, and fellow team members on any given day.
Joel Fleischman, and a few of Drexel’s longstanding team members accepted the award at the Wisconsin Lumber Dealers Convention this past Wednesday.
