OUR TEAM

 

When everyone says no, Maddox can say yes. Understanding what the customer needs and desires is the work of our Sales & Research team. With our vast inventory of designs and patterns, many dating back to our first years, as well as the ability to research and  create “from scratch” we have the ability to do what few others can. Innovative thinking is a daily mainstay in our custom job shops.
