Gary Christensen and Kent Carlson started Gary Kent’s Inc. in 1998. We had a concept and no customers. We contacted builders around the valley to let them know what we had to offer. Soon we had a number of contractors that decided to give us a try.
With a bit of trial and error we figured out what the builders needed, and what they expected of us. We tried to keep the inventory that they needed available. Along with inventory, we tried to have same day service. That was one of the best features, when they wanted supplies, they wanted it fast.
Our next thought was to make sure we hired people that were customer oriented. We told our people many times that they were the best crew in town, and we really felt that way about them. Consequently, we had a terrific business, with a great work force, and happy customers.
Since 1998, we have been serving the Snake River Valley, from Island Park to Pocatello. In January 2009 we changed ownership of the business to Chris Carlson. We will continue to do the best job we can to help customers with their needs.
Thanks to our great customers
Chris Kent’s Inc.
