“We’re just finishing up the renovations and hope customers will be impressed when they walk into the new store,” Branch Manager David Lercher said in a press release. “We put everything together -- the painting, slatwall and light fixtures. I’m just really excited to finally get the doors open.”
Lercher says the branch brings something to the area nobody has brought before, as the nearest competing distributor is many miles away. And with a location just off the highway in Ken Caryl Valley, it’s easy to find. “The contractors here have been looking for this for 20 years,” Lercher said.
CES Littleton is the 15th branch to open in Colorado and the 405th branch in the United States for the family-owned company. As a company that primarily promotes from within, this new branch means new opportunities for many, according to the press release.
Lercher served the Colorado Springs location for three and a half years before opening this branch. “I’m really excited to see my team grow individually – all these guys work so hard,” he said. “Everyone wants to come in and do a good job. They like the challenge and these four guys are going to be really good.” “We can’t wait to get started in this location. It’s incredible the rate we’re growing at and with more locations planned in Colorado, we’re going to make quite an impact on the jobs and opportunities available here,” Group Manager Randy Birely added.
