Infrastructure Stocks:  Q&A Interview with Founders of Fireman's Contractors Inc. (OTCBB: FRCN) Work Ethics and Business Strategy for Growing Infrastructure Company

POINT ROBERTS - November 14, 2011 -, a leader in sector stock research including construction stocks, homebuilder and infrastructure stocks releases the following Q&A interview with Fireman's Contractors Inc. (OTCBB: FRCN) C.E.O , Ms. Renee Gilmore and C.O.O. Mr. Aaron Gilmore.
Ms. Renee Gilmore explains her role and vision as day to day operations manager for the contractor services Company and Mr. Aaron Gilmore, who is still a firefighter, sheds light on the spirit behind the Company’s work ethics and professionalism.
Renee, your background as a partner in a contractor company, blended with your sales and marketing at Mary Kay Inc & corporate job at TrailBlazer Health Enterprises, LLC gives you an interesting combination of skills for your business. How does this prepare you and shape your vision for the day to day operations of Fireman's Contractors?
A: Ms. Renee Gilmore, Chief Executive Officer
Interestingly enough - corporate taught me how to manage a team and interact with various departments, meet budget requirements, implement systems, policies & procedures on an ongoing basis. And, the fact that I worked in a government sector of the insurance industry, we were constantly scrutinized and performing regular audits - so attention to detail was very important. The sales and marketing experience I gained with Mary Kay Inc taught me how to lead by example, win & influence others & present myself and the opportunity at hand with a bow around it. My experiences have allowed me to blend logistics with creativity - I use to joke that I went from geek to chic. So, I think I'm now a balanced blend as it's always a balancing act between sales/marketing and operations, no matter what business you're in.
Can you give us a quick overview of your services and what you feel your specialty niche is?
A: Ms. Renee Gilmore, Chief Executive Officer
We started as a painting company but found our niche in parking lot and pavement maintenance services. The fact that it's a recession resistant, repeat business and it's mandated to meet local & federal requirements, ie, ADA requirements is a big part of why it's now our specialty. And, it seemed to go hand in hand with our company name, Fireman's Contractors.
As part of our parking lot maintenance services, we offer striping, power washing, seal coating, crack filling, signage, wheel stops, asphalt & concrete repair, etc. Anything you see in the parking lot - we can provide & install, repair, etc. A small portion of our business continues to be commercial painting as a line of service.
Renee, they say behind every good man there is a good woman. In your case, you stand behind all your employees. How do you pass on your passion and vision to employees you hire within the company?
A: Ms. Renee Gilmore, Chief Executive Officer
Another one of my favorite sayings is that the man is the head of the household but the woman is the neck, which turns the mans head. I believe the same is true in our business - Aaron is the founder, our business would not be where it is today without him. Based upon his passion for serving as a FireFighter in helping others and code of honor and ethics gained as a result, we operate our business in the same manner and live each day by example. I've just taken what he started and applied my business experience to the day to day operations. We're constantly communicating to our employees about ways to improve, accomplishments made, where we are and where we're headed. While we have a big vision, it's important to celebrate the milestones along the way and enjoy the journey. We have our Vision & Mission Statement posted everywhere so it's hard to forget! We've been fortunate to attract employees that are gifted and talented in their areas of expertise and are excited about what we're doing, where we're going and have the integrity that we do. We have established a team atmosphere and everyone knows they are a part of "The Contractors You Can Trust"!
What is the growth strategy moving forward now that you have moved into your expanded location?
A: Ms. Renee Gilmore, Chief Executive Officer
We would like to continue growing our core business, ie. parking lot maintenance and commercial painting services. We experienced substantial growth from FYE 2010 - 2011, and we'd like to see that continue while maintaining the quality and customer service we promise to deliver. We've launched our franchise campaign and hope to gain 5 franchises during calendar year 2012. We also just recently became the first parking lot maintenance company that I know of to be publicly trading. With all of that said, we hope to continue building our name-brand image as we grow locally and nationally.
Aaron, as a firefighter, you have a code of work ethics and honor that stands above the rest. How have you integrated that into your business model?
A: Mr. Aaron Gilmore, Chief Operations Officer
We have the same expectations of the crew for our parking lot maintenance as we do within the fire department & created a code of honor for the business that pertains to everyone. While the crew isn't out trying to save lives, they are serving in the community and trying to make a positive impact by performing quality work and delivering what we promise. We want to create the same type of brotherhood within our business and crews that we have at the fire station. The crew is uniformed and we try to keep our equipment and warehouse clean - just like at the fire station. It helps to have Gary Cochran, our VP of Operations, a retired Grapevine Fire Marshall of 30 years and previous owner of his own parking lot maintenance company on board to ensure our standards are met. He's been a great asset to the team & he's helped to create the same brotherhood type atmosphere within Fireman's Contractors that I experience at the station while on-duty.
Can you share your vision of giving back profits back to Firemen's Associations?
A: Mr. Aaron Gilmore, Chief Operations Officer
I actively serve on our local and international Associations and have lead several initiatives in giving back to the community and non-profit organizations. So, it only seemed natural to do the same in our business. By having the business give back 1% of our proceeds to FireFighter Associations that give to organizations and local communities that help others is the least we could do. We have plans during this next Fiscal Year to not only give back monetarily as a company but also volunteer our time, & encouraging our employees to do the same, in an effort to not only help others but also to strengthen the brotherhood type atmosphere and team culture.
