COMPANY SPOTLIGHT Ain’t No Party Like a Makita Party

a job site, start cooking, and give away free lunch to everybody who’s working hard at those sites. We’re not really trying to sell as much as we’re trying to show our support for the clients and customers who keep us in business. We like to give back to the communities that we’re present in, and who doesn’t like a barbecue lunch? If you want to play with the Makita tools, you certainly can — they make fantastic power tools with the best battery technology out there — but that’s not the point. It’s really just about giving back.

Most building suppliers have close relationships with their vendors, but we don’t know of any that have a full-time party trailer like we do with Makita. Franklin Building Supply and Makita have partnered to buy a brand-new pickup and a pull-behind trailer custom- wrapped with both companies’ logos. As cool as it looks, the real fun starts when you peek inside. Not only is the trailer loaded with some of the latest, greatest Makita tools, it’s stuffed with all the supplies you need for a lunch party: chairs, a barbecue, burgers and hot dogs, you name it. Our very own Grayson Mohr has the cool job of driving the Makita Party Trailer from town to town, job to job, in all of our communities. He’ll stop in a subdivision or near

Look for the Makita party trailer in a town near you!
