“What I really enjoy the most is the number of people I’ve had the opportunity to meet. Oftentimes they have become good friends.”
How did your business begin?
I started Brabham Fence in July of 2005 after working in the industry for two other companies for about six years. The first office we had was in my 1-year-old daughter’s small playroom for the first six months. It was a crazy time but looking back it was one of the most exciting times of my life.
What is the mission of your business?
The mission is to provide the best quality fence, gate and rail products on the market today; installed professionally at a fair price while building mutually beneficial relationships.
How do you keep up with the latest advances in your field?
We are members of various trade organizations such as the American Fence Association. AFA sends out monthly publications with new products and ideas and also puts on a national trade show every year. We also maintain strong relationships with all of our suppliers and manufacturing partners that are continually educating us on any new developments and products.
What do you like best about your work?
What I really enjoy the most is the number of people I’ve had the opportunity to meet. Oftentimes they become good friends. I am also presented with a new opportunity every day because no two jobs are ever alike.
How does your company give back to the Columbia community?
I’ve always believed it is very important to give back whenever you’re in a position to do so. We have been able to be a part of many great causes in the community through sponsorships and donations. Family Connection of SC, Harvest Hope Food Bank, Ronald McDonald House and St. Lawrence Place are some of the organizations that we have been committed to supporting. We have also begun donating materials and labor annually to selected recipients.
