Easthampton, MA – Roger Fuller and Rick Hinton founded R & R Window Contractors, Inc. in November of 1978 with one simple goal in mind: to do what they loved and put food on the table.
The two brothers-in-law wanted to build a good reputation by doing right by their customers and employees and by having the integrity to fulfill their promise of providing high-quality work project after project.
For 40 years they have stayed true to those principles, and it has served them well. Not only have they been able to put food on their tables, but the two-man window installation business has matured into a full-service building façade company that employs nearly 100 people, including multiple generations of family.
“We were just two young window installers who wanted to do great work, treat people right, make sure that our word meant something, and uphold a good reputation as one of the names in the industry,” said president and cofounder Roger Fuller. “Those core values have been the driving force behind every decision we’ve made, every contract we’ve signed, and every employee we’ve hired.
“We never dreamed it could turn into what it did, and that all comes from the fact that we’ve somehow been able to attract people who share those same values. It’s our people that are the reason we’re about to celebrate 40 years in business.”
R & R hosted a dinner party to celebrate the milestone anniversary on November 3 at the Sheraton Hotel in Springfield for current and former employees, project owners, architects, general contractors, and many of R & R’s most trusted product vendors.
More than just colleagues celebrating the longevity of a successful business, it was a gathering of friends and family sharing fond memories of 40 years of good work, good times, and good people.
