Residential | CEDAR SIDING INC. Cedar Siding’s ongoing investment in technology helps it remain competitive. « CEDAR SIDING INC. CONDUCTS ITS BUSINESS BY FOLLOWING THE GOLDEN RULE. BY MARTA JIMÉNEZ-LUTTER The Bright Side T reat others as you would like to be treated, that is the rule upon which Gerald and Monte Enoch founded their business in 1987. Now 25 years later, with a younger generation of the Enoch family at the helm of the company, the rule still applies, whether they are dealing with customers, employees or distributors. Cedar Siding Inc. has its headquarters in Rochelle, Ill., where it has a 200,000-squarefoot storage and production facility spread out over seven acres of industrial park. The company specializes in producing and distributing pre-finished cedar, fiber cement, composite wood and other related siding products for the construction industry. Although the central hub is located in Rochelle, Cedar Siding has distribution centers in northern Indiana and Minnesota, with service extending into eastern parts of Iowa, Cedar Siding Inc. • Headquarters: Rochelle, Ill. • Employees: 80 • Specialty: Siding “We are not trying to be the lowest price or the highest, we are trying to provide fair pricing and the best service possible.” -Shawn Enoch, director of sales southern Michigan and the St. Louis area. The company attributes its growth to a combination of high-quality products, innovative coating technology and a solid team of employees. Shawn Enoch, son of Monte Enoch, is the director of sales and manages most aspects of sales and marketing for Cedar Siding. “We believe our coating is the best in the market, it’s durable and flexible,” he says. “We are not trying to be the lowest price or the highest, we are trying to provide fair pricing and the best service possible.” In fact, Enoch believes that his is a relationship business, so he makes a point of knowing his customers and letting them get to know him. “I have a personal relationship with a good amount of our customers in each territory, and I have developed good friendships with several of them over the years. “ To make sure he does not loose contact with his clients, Enoch spends only half of his time at the office, and the other half on the road meeting with clients and distributors. 74 CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2012 http://www.CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM
