Other industry involvement includes NTCA, Starnet Worldwide, various local con- tractors’ associations, and a large ongoing local industry educational initiative for the local architecture and design communities.
Community involvement is also important to Lippert Tile, with an annual golf outing benefiting Homes For Our Troops, monthly shipments overseas through Adopt-A-Platoon, Relay For Life, and other community-service and charity-fundraising events throughout the year. Giving back of its time, treasures, and talents is a core value of the company.
Lippert’s service and craftsman- ship are well regarded, but what sets it apart is its commitment to technical knowledge and skill, industry standards and best practices, its own high standards, and its willingness to proactively solve problems. Whether the issue of the day is a schedule compressed and made challenging by delays earlier in the project, or technically-challenging site conditions or materials, new applications, or unanticipated changes, Lippert can and will adapt to the circumstances and meet the client’s expectations. This is an area of particular pride; the company is known for its ability to deliver in the most difficult situations.
The company provides access to many continuing education opportunities for its employees, enabling them to serve clients as consultants and solutions providers.
Les and Jeff Lippert take seriously the responsibility they have to build an organization that remains faithful to the needs of the current and future employees, and their families, through individual and collective excellence and achievement. Being great together provides the basis for employees to achieve the success they hope for on behalf of their families.
