Campbell DKI Celebrates 30th Anniversary
December 22, 2009
(Canal Winchester, OH, December 22, 2009) – Campbell DKI (Disaster Kleenup International) is proud to announce that 2010 is the 30th Anniversary of the founding of their business. Since 1980 as Campbell Builders, Inc., founder Michael W. Campbell built the company on the foundation that there is no substitute for quality products, expert craftsmanship, dependable service and customer satisfaction. In 2009, Campbell Builder / Campbell DKI rejoined Disaster Kleenup International, a national network of restoration companies. Campbell Builders / Campbell DKI specialize in disaster restoration from fire, water, and storm damage.
“What I started 30 years ago has really changed in regards to how business is done,” said founder Michael W. Campbell. “The construction process is still the same – framing, drywall, painting and floor covering – but technology has had an incredible impact on the business. Many years ago when we had a disaster to attend to, we went out with a Polaroid or 35mm camera, took pictures, developed two copies, and then mailed them to the adjustor with an estimate done on a manual typewriter. It was a slow process. Then we purchased our first fax machine in 1987 for $2,500! Now we all carry high-tech cell phones, snap the pictures and send them anywhere in seconds. Instantly we send photos, insurance information, and estimates to get the job done. It’s unbelievable how things have changed. We had more personal contact with our adjustors back then, but technology ensures faster and high quality service to our customers. When a customer is dealing with a fire, water or wind disaster, getting the job done in a timely and dependable fashion is critical.”
Campbell Builders / Campbell DKI is a member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry of Central Ohio which celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year. NARI has awarded Campbell Builders / Campbell DKI with the Contractor of the Year in both Residential and Commercial Specialties, as well as the ACE (Achievement in Consumer Excellence) Award.
