HOW IT ALL STARTED

Our story

In 2010, a bold vision was born in the most unlikely of places – a small garage with three picnic tables, a laptop, and a plotter. It was here that a dedicated and visionary individual, alongside two daring partners, established what would become Advanced Framing Structures (AFS).

Their mission was simple yet ambitious – to redefine the rough carpentry industry and set new standards of excellence. Central to their approach was a deep commitment to delivering unmatched customer service, an attribute that would distinguish them from their competitors.

What started in a humble garage soon transformed into a thriving company, attracting talented individuals who shared the same passion for excellence. Today, AFS is proud to have a team of over 150 skilled employees, each contributing their expertise and commitment to delivering exceptional results.

With a customer-centric approach, a talented team, and a commitment to pushing the boundaries of excellence, AFS continues to redefine the industry. We are proud of our legacy, but always strive to reach new heights.

CORE VALUES

Here at Advanced Framing Structures, our success is driven by the core values that define who we are and how we operate. These four core values were carefully selected and are the guiding principles that shape our decisions, actions, and interactions with our team members, clients, and partners.

Path to Our Success

INFRASTRUCTURE

At our company, we recognize that the path to success is intricately linked to our infrastructure, along with the levels of leadership and communication that support and drive it. We believe in cultivating leaders at all levels, empowering them to make informed decisions, inspire their teams, and drive positive change. We encourage an environment where team members freely exchange ideas, share knowledge, and provide feedback. This communication allows us to identify opportunities for improvement, address potential issues promptly, and make data-driven decisions to enhance our performance.

We recognize that offering flexibility and choice to our clients is essential in meeting their unique needs and delivering exceptional value.

We enable them to have choices that align with their specific requirements and goals, while optimizing for cost-effectiveness, quality, and performance.

FIND THE YES ALWAYS MAKES IT RIGHT

The philosophy of “always finding the yes” means that we go above and beyond to meet customer needs and exceed their expectations. When faced with a challenge or request, we approach it with a mindset of finding a solution rather than focusing on limitations or obstacles. We explore creative alternatives, leverage our expertise and resources, and proactively work towards delivering on our commitments.
