What does it look like for a business organization to be intertwined with a community? What is the value for a community to fully embrace what a business has to offer? What is the benefit for a business organization to fully commit itself to the wellbeing of the place they call home?
We might be able to more easily answer these questions if we took a walk around the city of Lebanon with Dave Funk. Dave, along with his brothers, Bob and Ken, are the owners/leaders of Arthur Funk & Sons, Inc. While the Funk brothers are much too humble to point this out, it is fair to say that the city of Lebanon would look very different without this third-generation contractor.
“We build communities” – churches, senior living, health care and manufacturing are just a few of the cornerstones of a healthy community. If it were just about a physical structure, we could stop the story here. But the story only begins here. Whether grandfather Arthur, father Henry, or current owners Bob, Ken and Dave, the generations change but the commitment to putting heart into the community does not.
Ask a family member. Ask an employee. Ask a sub-contractor. Ask a community leader. You will likely get a similar response. If you are a Funk team member, you care as much about what goes on in and around a building as the building itself. After all, you are building community.
We are grateful to serve Arthur Funk & Sons, Inc. They make our communities better.
