From The Desk Of: Our Interns – “The Recipe for Consolidated”

Tradition, Quality, Service, and Pride are the key ingredients to Consolidated Carpet. These values are a part of the Consolidated culture and were obvious to us from the moment we walked in the door. History is important to Consolidated being that it is a 70 year old third-generation business, owned and operated by the Meberg family. However, you do not have to have the last name Meberg to feel like family here. There is a sense of trust and respect between every associate within the company. At Consolidated, relationships are important. Internally, team work is essential during all parts of an operation. Even though we’ve only been here a few weeks, it is obvious that the associates work to each other’s strengths because the company understands that everyone works differently, encouraging them to work the way that is best for them. The different perspectives that associates have blend together- which is one factor to the company’s success. 

Everyone from the estimators to the installers is knowledgeable about the products that Consolidated installs. Because of this, there is fluent communication within the office community. Even before a bid is received, the company’s mission, “to proudly service our valued clients’ every flooring need”, is in full effect. Consolidated’s commitment to quality is found throughout the office, starting with the precise work of the estimators. Then coordinators, project management, and back office operations complete their responsibilities in a productive manner. The salespeople understand how Consolidated fits in to the industry and act upon opportunities to succeed.

Consolidated Carpet is so much more than just flooring. The associates have  been more than just educators to us  and are willing to learn from each other. Every day we have come into the office, we have not only learned something new about the industry but also about life as well. One lesson they have stressed is the importance of relationships. Through building relationships on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn, Consolidated has increased transparency to vendors, general contractors, and end users.

Consolidated is a unique company because every associate has a sense of pride in what they do, making it a very positive place to work. Associates are proud to be part of the company. The company trusts everyone to do their jobs and represent the Consolidated brand: The Consolidated Way.
