Thanks for the Opportunity, America
Edward B. Dunlap, CentiMark Founder, Chairman and CEO, wrote this Thank You to America in 1995, after 27 years in business. Today - 23 years later - and after 50 total years in business, his words still ring true! CentiMark’s 50th anniversary is April 19, 2018.
In 1968, we took advantage of all the opportunity America had to offer… Today, CentiMark is America’s largest roofing contractor. Thanks for the opportunity, America.
CentiMark would like to take the opportunity to say, “Thank you, America.” Where else could you start a business in your home, part time, and in 27 years build it into the largest roofing contractor in the country?
It says a lot about the hard work and dedication of our associates; the trust and confidence of our customers; and the quality and support of our suppliers.
But it also says something about America: that opportunity still exists for those who seek it, that the dream lives on for those willing to work for it.
To all the customers, suppliers, associates and their families who helped achieve this distinction, thanks for giving us the opportunity and letting us take advantage of it.
To those who are struggling to make their own dreams come to life, keep fighting for them.
Dreams still come true in America.
