At Simpson Strong-Tie, we believe that Everybody Matters, no matter your role, and we treat coworkers like family. So it’s not uncommon for employees to stay with the company for years or even decades. In this article, a 20-year veteran, Sam Marcoux, reflects on his Simpson Strong-Tie journey so far.
Erin Nichols is a proud member of the sales team here at Simpson Strong-Tie. She shares the story of how her career journey unfolded and how she encourages other women in sales to follow this career path, too.
I am a new Dealer Sales Representative, Residential, in the Central Florida market.

We’re happy to share their stories on what “Relentless Customer Service” means and their individual journeys at Simpson Strong-Tie.
