When Tim and Bamie Cornelius along with their son, Clint purchased First Impression in 2002 from a previous family, they had no idea what the next decade had in store other than to leverage Tim’s 25 years of experience as an Accountant, Bamie’s design creativity, and Clint’s engineering savvy and operational expertise from his military experience.
Make a memorable “First Impression” with our unlimited ornamental iron designs. A family owned business since 1995, we custom fabricate all products at our facilities in Phoenix, Arizona. Our high quality, fast delivery, and loyalty to our customers is evident in our A+ Rating by the Better Business Bureau, spotless Registrar of Contractors history, and a third of new monthly business from previous customers and referrals.
Since the Cornelius family took the helm, the business has grown ten fold not just in sales but local job creation, yet has never lost the attention to people and detail that only a family business offers. “Customer satisfaction is our #1 priority at First Impression, this is our primary concern evidenced by being an A+ Rated Accredited Member of the Better Business Bureau since 2002, receiving the Angie’s List Super Service Award for the past 10 years, and rated the #4 Manufacturing Business in Arizona by “Ranking Arizona” for 2012 and 2016. Our dedicated employees take great pride in being an industry leader and upholding our company values of providing the highest quality products, award winning service, quickest delivery, and overall best value.” shares Tim Cornelius, President.
