Home Center was established by my grandfather and grandmother, Lester
and Jerri Newton. I am the third generation of Newton's that are
involved in and own Congaree Home Center. Lester and Jerri Newton
started Congaree Home Center, Inc. in 1991. They started this company
so that they could have some thing to do while they were semi-retired
and here it is 20 years later and they have built an successful company
with a solid foundation that is going to last another 20 years and that I
am proud to be a part of.
To give you some insight on the
owner, Lester Newton, he's a man with the biggest heart and would bend
over backwards twice for anyone, yet he is stubborn and a true business
man and to me the smartest businessman I know. He believes that you
always do the best you can, you treat others the way you want to be
treated, and always do what's right. At the age of 73, I have seen my
poppa go to customers homes
and plant them crape myrtle trees with his tractor, I have seen him
spend all day with his tractor raking and backfilling in 90 degree
weather around a customer's home who couldn't afford it elsewhere, and I
have seen him feed up his animals on his farm at 10pm so that his
customers could be 100% satisfied and taken care of no matter what time
he arrived home.
Lester saw a need in the Columbia area
for a dealership to provide quality built homes at affordable prices
and a company that would treat people with respect and honesty. A year
after opening, Art Newton, my father, joined the company after being in
truck and car sales for over 10 years. Art is another owner and has
been a huge part of Congaree since the beginning in management and in
sales.&n bsp; Art is very involved in the MHISC (Manufactured
Housing Institute of South Carolina) where he has served as President
and is currently a chair member. I joined the company after I graduated
from LSU in 2001, and as I learned the family business I understood how
much effort my grandfather and my father put into making sure that their
customer's were happy and satisfied 100% with service they received and
the quality of their home.
Again I am so lucky to be able to work
with my father, my grandfather, and my grandmother and the Congaree
Home Center family as we learn and grow every day. This company was
started on the belief that you must treat everyone like they are a part
of your family and we want each of our customers and our future
customers to feel like they have been treated like they are a part of
the Congaree Home Center family.
