Being a true pioneer in the industry and an environmentally conscious business, SouthCoast Carpet One has adopted an eco-friendly plan called The Green Select.
“Our Green Select initiative represents our commitment to making our environment better through our relationship with our communities, our customers, our suppliers and our employees. One key example is our Green Select Labels. We’re continually working with our vendors to produce flooring that meets our strict eco-friendly standards.”
Along with owner Bryan Mailloux’s economically efficient flooring plans SouthCoast Carpet One is partnered with thousands of mills, manufacturers and brands allowing them to posses enormous buying power getting you, the customer, exactly what you want. We have represented Bryan and SouthCoast Carpet One and I have personally purchased materials for my own project shown below.
I redid my counter-tops using Italian granite tiles and a stone backsplash. Bryan also supplied me with a very high quality professional thin-set material that’s not available in the “big box” stores. This is just one of the many ways that his SouthCoast business stands out against the big-box competitors.
As we do here at the Client Spotlight we asked Bryan a few questions about how his business was formed and his own background. What we found out was quite an interesting story.
Bryan had “fallen into the industry” after 4 years of service in the military. He was able to earn a degree in accounting and management where he took his skills to a CPA firm after his service had ended. At night Bryan was installing flooring equipment with a friend who he would later run a flooring store with for 10 years. After 10 years he left to become a wholesale flooring representative and 2 1/2 years later we has given the opportunity to “buy into Co-op Carpetone.” After years of exceptional service Bryan decided to expand his market and move into a new facility, where he currently operates, at 1030 State Road, Westport Ma.
Now in his 11th year as a business owner Bryan still spends every minute of his day and night dedicated to SouthCoast Carpet One. When asked what Bryan loved most about being a business owner he responded,
“BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR MY OWN ACTIONS – KNOWING MY HARD WORK AND DEDICATION WILL (HOPEFULLY) BE REWARDED TO ME SOME DAY.”
Well, being an extremely satisfied customer myself, I can assure Bryan that through his endless dedication and quality of service “that day” is sure to come soon.
“WE TRY TO GIVE THE BEST POSSIBLE PRICE RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE. ONE HAS TO BE WARY OF “NOT SO CLEAR” ADVERTISING – THE INITIAL OFFER OF A “LOW” PRICE ON MATERIAL MOST OFTEN INDICATES A VERY POOR QUALITY PRODUCT. IF I AM INVESTING IN MY HOME I DO WANT THE BEST QUALITY PRODUCT THAT I CAN AFFORD. PRICE OF THE ACTUAL PRODUCT IS ALWAYS ONLY ***ONE*** ISSUE IN THE PURCHASING PROCESS. INSTALLATION, AFTER SALE SERVICE, WARRANTIES – WILL BE SACRIFICED IF JUST SHOPPING PRICE. THE “BOTTOM LINE” FOR THE PRODUCT AND SERVICE AND HOW COMFORTABLE YOU FEEL WITH THE COMPANY YOU ARE DOING BUSINESS WITH SHOULD BE THE BAROMETER.”
