To enhance customer service for his detail-focused kitchen and bath work, three years ago George Cleary  hired an in-house designer to design projects, help clients with product selections, and accompany Cleary on sales calls.

He also added a part-time designer and recently broke ground on a design center that will include a working kitchen, a conference room, and a selections area. “We’re expanding our facilities to meet the needs of the always-changing client and economy,” Cleary says. He continues to work with an outside architect on larger projects. Though the company added employees and gained market share during the recession, Cleary will use the design center to promote the company’s design/build services and to enhance its community presence.
