DENVER — Tuff Shed,Inc., America’s leading supplier of storage buildings and garages will be hosting a Grand Opening event on Friday and Saturday, April 23-24, 2021 at their new sales and design center located in Pueblo, Colo.
The Denver-based company has been a bright spot in the U.S. retail sales and manufacturing sectors and is now looking to bring on more installers to be part of its workforce at the Pueblo location and other production facilities across the country. Tuff Shed has serviced Colorado customers since opening a production facility and moving their headquarters to Denver in 1986. Customers serviced out of the Pueblo sales location will have their building manufactured by the Tuff Shed factory in Colorado Springs.
Tuff Shed’s Pueblo facility is located at 1511 Bahama Drive, near the intersection of US 50 W and Pueblo Blvd. The two-day event will showcase the company’s 2021 building models, special savings, prizes and a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Pueblo Chamber of Commerce at 10 a.m. April 23rd.
With unprecedented consumer demand, Tuff Shed recorded the best single sales and revenue year in its 40-year history during 2020. Like most businesses last March and April, Tuff Shed experienced business challenges that included closures and installation challenges. But consumer and institutional demand for storage buildings and garages fueled remarkable growth in the second half of last year.
“We’re looking for people with great attitudes who can be great coworkers for our amazing team,” says Mike Casey, Tuff Shed Chief Operating Officer. “Construction and manufacturing experience is always a plus, but we’re willing to train people with no experience who are looking for a new and stable career. In most roles we are even paying a hiring and retention bonus as well.”
Part of Tuff Shed’s recent success is a result of how the company pivoted in response to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. The company implemented additional measures to keep its employees, contractors and customers safe, such as shifting to virtual appointments and site checks, doing extra cleaning and distancing at its factories, and ensuring that its installers also followed procedures around using disinfectant, wearing masks, and never entering customers’ homes.
“The safety of our employees, community, and customers is our top concern,” says Tuff Shed Founder and President Tom Saurey. “We responded to this crisis early and have continued to practice social distancing rules, require mask use, and are working on keeping all of our facilities cleaner than ever.”
Tuff Shed also responded to the call for unique building uses which emerged during the COVID-19 crisis. Tuff Shed provided buildings to residential homeowners for buildings to be used as home office space, home schooling space, expanded space for additional family members living at home, and for storage of household goods. Additionally, Tuff Shed installed structures to be used as part of COVID-19 testing at health care facilities across several states including here in Colorado.
Tuff Shed’s company footprint includes 52 production facilities across the country, and a total of 150 brick-and-mortar retail storefronts and cross docks. Tuff Shed also is a Service and Install partner for The Home Depot, offering an exclusive line of building products at all of the home improvement retailer’s stores in the lower 48 United States.
TUFF SHED products include wooden storage sheds and garages. The company works with its customers to design and accessorize buildings, then pre-fabricates key building components at its manufacturing facilities so it can deliver and install buildings on the customer site. Over its 40 years Tuff Shed has designed, fabricated and installed more than 1.3 million buildings across the country.
