First Impression Security Doors Listed Among Phoenix Business Journal’s ‘Top 25 Manufacturers in Phoenix’
Ornamental Iron, Door Manufacturer Scores #14 Spot on 2016 Valley-Wide List
GILBERT, Ariz. April 11, 2016 – It started in 1995 as a small, family-owned security screen door company, and its success and growth in the more than 20 years since proved enough to score it the #14 spot on the Phoenix Business Journal’s 2016 list of the Top 25 Manufacturers in Phoenix.
The Gilbert-based ornamental iron manufacturer and supplier of premium-quality supreme doors stands out amidst major industry giants also making the cut, among them The Boeing Co., Intel Corp. and Honeywell Aerospace. Still family-owned more than two decades after its inception, veteran-owned First Impression Security Doors now employs more than 150 employees across its expansive, 50,000 square foot operation and showroom spaces.
“Being a strong and growing family-owned manufacturing business in the Valley for over 20 years, I look back in amazement how far we have been able to take this company,” said First Impression Owner Tim Cornelius. “We love every one of our customers who have supported us over all these years, and of course we are very proud to be ranked #14 in the list of top manufacturers in Phoenix.”
Cornelius attributes much of the company’s success to its ability to offer superior products with a strong emphasis on customer service. Though the inclusion on the Phoenix Business Journal’s manufacturing list is among the company’s latest accomplishments, past accolades include numerous Angie’s List Super Service Awards and a ‘#4 Manufacturing Business in Arizona’ nod by “Ranking Arizona,” among others.
