Our company started as a family owned and operated business and even though we now have more than 500 employees, there is still a strong sense of family, a fact I consider to be one of our greatest competitive advantages. As LaTrelle’s has continued to steadily grow, I have sought to add members to our “family” that share our priority of cultivating a company culture where teamwork and collaboration are literally second nature. We value every employee and credit them with our current success, as well as our future success.
