What We're About
Our largest client for over six years was asked to describe our relationship: “FMG has never sold us anything, but they do help us buy $20 million annually.” We listen and build relationships with our clients. They know us, like us, and trust us with their repeat business.
- Be known
- Be liked
- Be trusted
“It” is such a short, simple word, but it encompasses many things. A person that gets “It” inherently does something that’s above and beyond what’s expected. We encourage employees to deliver that “It Factor” and understand that small individual actions can create a tremendous difference. The “It Factor” is the value we constantly provide by treating clients how we would want to be treated.
- Go above and beyond
- Overcome obstacles
- Have a strong work ethic
- Constantly provide value
At FMG, our team is our family. That sense of family is why we care for others and are cared for in return. Team members always have a direct influence on one another; it’s why we aim to foster a positive environment. Talented people migrate to a place that values the family spirit. We consider our clients part of our family.
- Understand each other
- Care for each other
- Positively influence each other
What is great service? Why do Design Firms, Real Estate Firms, or Corporate America hire us? Our 38 year history is deeply rooted in great client experiences. Empowering our people enables us to take ordinary products, services, or job responsibilities and make them extraordinary. We create value by doing more than is necessary and exceeding expectations. This defines our culture!
- Anticipate and solve problems
- Be self-motivated
- Proactively take care of your client
- Take risks and embrace your creativity
How It All Started
It all started in 1955 with a young man who delivered newspapers for the Dallas Times Herald. He learned something important: putting the customer’s needs first. He built loyal relationships with his customers by learning to place the paper exactly where each person wanted it. Some people wanted it put in the door, some in the mail box, others wanted it on a porch table away from the dog.
Cleon understood that his customers wanted more than a paper; they wanted individualized service on how the paper was delivered!
“Our success is based on how we place the paper.” - Cleon Almond
Family-Owned & People-Focused From The Beginning
FMG is a family-owned business founded by Cleon Almond. Cleon wasn't concerned with being the biggest and so developed a culture for being the best. That success-strategy is what delivered FMG to the forefront of the office-furniture industry. Second-generation owner and CEO, Greg Almond continues to steer FMG with those same award-winning principles.
Haworth, Inc. is a global leader in the design and manufacturing of office furniture and integrated palette of products, including raised access floors, moveable walls, systems furniture, seating, storage and wood casegoods. FMG is excited to have Haworth as one of our key manufacturing relationships. As a result, our clients have access to world class furniture, lighting and architectural products.About Our Product Lines
