Events – Milestones

The Events – Milestones chronicled on this page are a part of  our company’s history of service to the Rochester community. They reflect our company’s heritage and values.

At Matthews & Fields we are proud to host regular events throughout the year. Some are educational seminars for our customers, like the recently held Katz Roadshow, some are just for fun, like our summer barbecue we put on with our friends and suppliers at Cox Industries. We also exhibit each year at the Rochester Home and Garden Show to connect with new customers and display popular product lines like those offered by Andersen Windows and Doors.

In addition to events, we’d like to share with you milestones in our company’s ongoing history. We are proud of the one hundred plus years we’ve been serving the Rochester community,  changing and growing with the times.

Highlights from the October 12th Katz Roadshow at our Greece location…

Here’s video recap of the “Roadshow”, an educational all day event aimed at updating contractors, re-modelers, and homeowners on the latest and greatest tools, techniques, and building products. Matthews and Field hosted the event at its Greece location on Stonewood Ave on October 12th, 2015.

Face lift for our Henrietta Store…

After with Bob (Copy)

Summer of 2015  saw an almost instantaneous change to the exterior of our Henrietta location. Calling it a “face lift” is an understatement: it looks like our old store disappeared and a new one appeared overnight by magic. The “magic” in reality was brought about by a partnership between our company and Novik, Inc., a new supplier we added recently.

Novik offers extremely high quality simulated stone exterior siding and trim treatments for commercial and residential applications.  The product is an engineered plastic that is strong yet lightweight, so much so that it can be installed by one person if need be.

… and the new!

We are very proud of our store’s new appearance! And we’re proud to be stocking the Novik line of simulated stone products. We’re getting rave reviews from builders,                 remodelers, and do-it-yourself homeowners. We welcome your interest and we’re here to support and stand behind this stellar new Novik product line.

Remembering Larry …

Events - Milestones

Our good friend Larry who passed in 2015

 

Matthews & Fields lost longtime staff member and friend Larry Wenzel  this past year. Larry  passed away after a short illness in early March of 2015. He had manned our sales counter for many years and was appreciated by everyone who came in contact with him. Larry  had a strong work ethic and a desire to be of service to his customers and fellow staff. He had a great sense of humor. We and our customers miss Larry a lot and we’ll never forget him…

Slow cook barbecue  celebrates customer appreciation day at M&F!

Matthews & Fields and Roy Hudson and staff of Cox Industries team up to throw the annual staff and customer appreciation day picnic at the Henrietta location of Matthews & Fields’. An outstanding assortment of southern barbecue dishes were cooked up by Roy and associates, Matthews & Fields t-shirts were given away to guests, and a VERY good time was had by all!

Cox Industries has been Matthews & Fields pressure treated lumber supplier for many years and drove over 800 miles, cooker in tow, to create a feast of ribs, pulled pork, chicken barbecue, and low country boil.
