TAMKO: A Family Business
By David C Humphreys
My father, Jay Humphreys, was there to help when the family needed him. He led TAMKO for 38 years until his death. His vision for growth and quality products laid the foundation on which the company continues to grow and prosper today. His influence on TAMKO established the culture still in place with the company’s unwavering commitment to “Free Market Principles” and Deming’s “Continuous Improvement.” As TAMKO’s President and CEO today, my role is to continue these commitments and maintain the company’s strong culture of honesty, integrity, and respect.
Without my father’s foresight and willingness to take risks, to adapt to changing technology and customer demand, TAMKO would not be here today. We also would not be here if my mother had not been such a good sounding board throughout that time, helping to advance the company” – David C. Humphreys, TAMKO’s 75th Anniversary CelebrationTAMKO has faced challenges, including economic downturns and natural disasters. But we have persevered and thrived. TAMKO is not merely a business, it is a family business. Every employee at TAMKO is an important part of our culture and works hard to serve our customers. Together, we are building on the foundations established by the great men and women who have been part of the TAMKO team for over 75 years. A well-run business can provide pathways for employees, not just to earn a living, but to learn and perfect skills, achieve important goals, and build a meaningful life. A great business can also help build communities and industries. TAMKO Building Products has provided all of these pathways for its employees, and growth and opportunity for the many communities where we operate.
