Scott Taylor, owner of Taylor Building Systems
How long have you been in business?
The company was started 46 years ago. Our grandfather started it, my dad continued the business and so we are the third generation.
In your words describe your business:
We are a pre-engineered metal fabricator. Our primary business is fabricating metal roofing components.
What is your biggest challenge as a business owner?
Hiring and keeping great people. In our experience, sometimes it is better to take people who have no experience in the field of welding, etc. and we actually end up doing better than if we had someone with a lot of bad habits from previous training. We have a great core of employees which has taken years to build.
What is the most rewarding part about your job?
The best feeling is having satisfied customers. We are proud of the product we provide them.
Metal that will be fabricated into roof components
If you had a magic wand to fix anything in your business, what would you do?
It would be great to continue to increase our efficiency and be able to produce our product as fast as possible for our customers.
Why is it important to join the Anadarko Chamber?
For us it is mainly the networking opportunities, there are people in this area that may not know we are here and the services we provide.
Anything you would like to share with our audience?
We just want to thank the Anadarko community who has been very supportive of us as we have grown. We get as many customers around Anadarko as we do in Chickasha. Our hours are 8:00 – 5:00 p.m. Monday – Friday and Saturday 8:00 – 11:00 a.m. We are located at 2479 CS 2865, Chickasha, OK 73018 and you can call 405-222-0751 for more information.
