Replacement Contractor contributor, Gary Thill, interviewed the newly minted president of Window World. Steven Kamody spoke with Thill on his vision for the company, the state of the industry, and what can be done to address continued labor shortages. When asked what is on the horizion for Window World, Kamody responded,
"I’m really excited about our future. I like to say that this is a new day at Window World. I’ve started to put together a fairly bold implementation plan that our stores can embrace. We’re in the midst of huge initiatives that are fixing what needs to be fixed.
For our ownership group we have committed to making improvements to franchise agreements. We’ve also undertaken a project to adjust our national sales contract so stores can be more profitable.
At the same time, we’re adding to our pool of vendors. All of this is to give our stores what they truly need to be successful. We’re committed to helping our stores be more effective, efficient and profitable. We want to give them whatever service support they need to be successful. Part of that is giving them the necessary tools. And part of that tool box is the best product and the best value. That’s why this is such a large initiative. We’re vetting a lot of vendors right now."
