One of the great things about America is the freedom we have to pursue the things we’re most curious and passionate about. This freedom is available to anyone with a dream and a willingness to work hard to achieve that dream. This concept is alive and well at Woodworx. When Todd Albee, a native of Pennsylvania, and Gabriel Araujo, from Argentina, met on a project in the early 2000s, they were both subcontractors doing residential trim work. It was clear from the start that something clicked between them. Not only did they share a love of carpentry, but also a love of freedom. And in 2007, they set out to create a carpentry company unlike any other. One based on transparency, professionalism, and a willingness to do the kind of work that others wouldn’t touch.
While starting a company during an economic downturn isn’t the best fortune, they emerged from the recession with a clear vision for their company. And that vision didn’t include a traditional subcontractor model based on a complacent routine that becomes more about fulfillment than creativity.
