Ferguson Roofing Named a Top Family Owned Business

Long before the days of large corporations and publically-traded companies, small family-owned establishments built the foundation for business as we know it today. Communities rely heavily on small businesses to build local economies and provide job opportunities. Ferguson Roofing has been a family owned and operated business for 75 years serving the St. Louis region. It has a long, healthy relationship with the city it calls home. The company prides itself on community involvement, treating customers like family and taking care of their staff. These values have not gone unnoticed.

Last month, Ferguson Roofing was recognized by Small Business Monthly as being a Top Family Owned Business of 2014 in the St. Louis area. Small Business Monthly (SBM) is a print and digital publication that serves the Greater St. Louis market and represents privately owned companies. The magazine covers topics such as business trends and best practices. It aims to be a resource to companies to be successful in the St. Louis marketplace.

Each year SBM recognizes awardees in a number of categories, including Top Young Entrepreneurs, Best IT Firms and Best in Reliability, to name a few. This year, Ferguson Roofing President, Jason Shupp, was presented with the Family Business Award on behalf of the company he co-owns with his brother, Brett Shupp.

Jason frequently uses SBM as a resource for growing and developing business opportunities, and building relationships with other companies in the community. The Shupp family and the Ferguson Roofing staff are honored to be among the awardees that SBM has selected as exceptional businesses in 2014.

Partnerships

I am an avid motorcyclist. I am also a race fan. Add some dirt and this is the recipe for great action through Supercross and the Outdoor National Motocross races. This year has had particularly exciting races. In seasons past, like in many elite level individual sports, there are a few participants that tend to dominate consistently. This year, the depth of the competition has allowed more racers to be in the mix and different faces at the top step of the podium. I love to see the competition. As a competitor, I don’t see competition as an obstacle to be the best, but as the catalyst to be better than you are. For more information about Supercross, click here.

Santa House 2012!

It has really started to feel like the winter holidays have arrived here at Ferguson Roofing. We just did our part to usher in the “jolly old soul” in red! Ferguson Roofing has proudly donated our time and the materials to assemble the Santa House for the past 6 years at Mid Rivers Mall at 1600 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in St. Peters. As a third generation business, we understand the importance of family, both in and out of the workplace. We know that many families uphold the tradition of “visiting Santa” year after year and we appreciate the opportunity to help make that happen. No matter what holiday you celebrate, we all have those traditions we look forward to. What is something you look forward to doing with your family this holiday season?

“Over the Edge” Repel Postponed

Due to the lightning and high winds on Friday, the “Over the Edge” building repel was cancelled until next year. As disappointed as we are not to watch Jason throw himself off a building for charity, we look at this as an opportunity to raise more money and support with our staff and the community for Special Olympics!
