COMPETITION CAN BE a tough row to hoe in the business world. Businesses have to stand out from the pack. We are fourth-generation owners/operators, and Domer’s, Inc. has survived the Great Depression of the 1930s, the economic downturn of a few years ago, and everything in between. Despite changes in technology, we haven’t changed how we do business, and there are some good lessons in there.
The philosophies that we follow today are those that our great-grandfather and original owner, Victor Jacob Domer, followed in the 1920s. They are the unique qualities that have allowed Domer’s, Inc. to stay in business for almost 90 years:
1. Knowing what business is really about. Business is more than the exchange of goods and services for money; it is about building and sustaining relationships with personal one-on-one service, honesty, integrity, and accountability. We greatly appreciate the relationships we currently have with people and look forward to continuing those and building more.
2. Your employees make the business. Experienced members of our team together have over 100 years of knowledge in this specialized field. You treat good employees like family; we have team members that have been with Domer’s for up to 30 years.
3. Offer your customers your best. In addition to reliable products and services, we have a very extensive inventory of specialized parts, hard-to-find parts, etc. that have been personally selected for our clientele. If we do not have it in stock, we can usually get things within a day or so!
These three core values are integral to how we do business, and, if given the opportunity, we’d be pleased to show you our philosophy in action.
