Pure coincidence, or the hands of fate? That’s what the team at Bridgewater Overhead Doors contemplated when they heard this year’s good news…that they would be recognized on stage amongst thousands as proud recipients of the highest ranked award at the annual Clopay Garage Door Dealer Conference in May 2019. Without any prior knowledge of the conference location or realizing the time that had elapsed after late owner John F. Veglatte’s passing from brain cancer in 2009, the team purchased $1 million in products from their Master Authorized Dealer exactly ten years after his death.
However, what’s more fascinating to the team is that the location of the conference is in Key West, Florida – John’s favorite place in the entire world where he purchased his dream home in 2007 (pictured above).
“We kept getting closer and closer every year since we took over but always struggled to hit that mark. I believe it was truly the hands of fate from my father on his 10-year anniversary. When they announced the location of Key West, it was the cherry on top to making this one of the most mind-blowing moments of my entire life,” remarked owner Nick Veglatte, son of John Veglatte. “I know my father will be smiling down from heaven proud of all the hard work, sacrifices and efforts from our team. This couldn’t have ever been possible without the help of Phil, Christina, Cathy, Adam, Maryellen, and all of our technicians. We have such a strong team right now; a great blend of veterans and solid new installers that have been trained by the veterans,” commented Nick. “It kind of just happened and fell into place a little TOO easy…that’s how you know when it’s truly fate,” remarked owner Christina J. Veglatte. The Company also grew sales over 10% YOY; and will be receiving an additional award related to sales growth at the Conference as well.
The family business was established in 1956 and is currently in the hands of third generation owners. The company is dedicated to customer satisfaction, treats each customer like family and beats any competitor pricing. All of the employees routinely receive positive testimonials stating that they went above and beyond expectations. “Our technicians don’t just rush in and out, leaving you feeling confused. They truly care and take time to explain everything fully so that you feel comfortable with your new investment. We feel this is our competitive edge,” smiles last owner Philip DiGasbarro.
