Vinewood Coverings and Construction, Inc. (“Vinewood”) is based in Lodi, California, and opened in early 2015, with an intent of providing window coverings to the greater Sacramento, San Joaquin, and Stanislaus regions. The owner, Josh Williams, served as a firefighter with the state of California for 10+ years before deciding to start his own business. While in the fire service, Josh developed excellent customer service and life skills. With the help of a close family friend, Josh was able to open accounts with a few different window covering manufacturers to get the business started. He applied his acquired skill set from the fire service and work experience to starting and owning a business. Shortly after starting Vinewood, Josh learned about retractable awnings and was very interested in providing them for his customers as well. He became a dealer for a retractable awning company and added that to his product lineup.
For the first 10 months in business, Josh ran everything out of his garage and was the office staff, salesperson, and installer, all in one. In early 2016, things became a little hectic when UPS Freight trucks started arriving in his neighborhood to deliver product. So, he secured a small shop as the business continued to grow. Vinewood purchased the first two company vehicles (sales vans) also in early 2016. As business continued to grow, a full-time office staff person was hired to run the day-to-day responsibilities. Vinewood also hired a sales consultant and a handful of installers.
As time progressed, Vinewood expanded very quickly. Josh explored other options in the awning industry and became a dealer for a couple of different manufacturers. Patio structures were another avenue he explored, and he began to offer aluminum patio structures for his customers as well. Vinewood continues to strive to offer a variety of prducts to meet the customer’s needs. From the first year in business to the end of the second year, Vinewood experienced a 600% growth spurt. Yes, you read that right – 600%!
Fast forward to present – Vinewood has sold over 350 retractable awnings, several aluminum patio structures and many, many window coverings. We now have twelve employees that serve on the team. From office staff, bookkeeping, sales and installers, the team works collaboratively to make sure the customer is priority. The mindset is family oriented; however, we strive for a professional experience. Vinewood is still considered a small business but our efforts to make the customers feel important is anything but small. Vinewood offers world-class customer service and maintains open communication by being accessible when needed and standing behind the products and services we offer. As with any organization, especially just starting out, there are always opportunities for growth along the way. We value the customer and recognize we would not be where we are today, without them.
In December 2018, Vinewood moved into a new office suite in the industrial area of east Lodi, and we now have a showroom open and available to the public. We wanted our customers to have somewhere to come to experience the joys of a retractable awning (we’ve had several requests throughout the years!), and to see a display of our window covering options. The showroom has the same hours as our office; Monday – Friday, 9am-5pm.
Vinewood continues to see growth and has expanded its wings even further into general contracting. As a licensed General Contractor with the state of California, Vinewood has been provided unique opportunities to perform a variety of work that goes beyond window coverings, awnings and patio industries.
