HOUSTON, TEXAS [September 8, 2018] – Rockwood has ranked in Houston Business Journal’s 2018 Fast 100 awards. Recognizing Houston-area private companies with the fastest revenue growth, the final ranking was revealed at an awards event on September 7, and Rockwood was proud to be surrounded by some of the most successful, growing companies in Houston.
President and CEO Jennifer Baur and COO Mike Blackburn co-founded Rockwood in 1998. After hard work and persistence, Rockwood became the interior shutter provider for the country’s largest home improvement retailer, The Home Depot, starting out in 16 Houston area stores, and expanding into multiple markets across 26 states. Rockwood has the goal of creating the finest experience in buying window treatments. To do so, the company seeks ways to innovate and streamline the scheduling, quoting, ordering, manufacturing, product review and shipping processes. In order to reach the goal, they have transitioned into a technology company by implementing a paperless ordering and processing system. This transition increased efficiency and reduced product lead times to the shortest in the industry. A unique company, Rockwood manufactures its own products, sells directly to customers with its own team of design consultants and installs the finished products.
Rockwood is involved in several philanthropic programs throughout the community. The company supports the Habitat for Humanity, and in addition to donations and hours of volunteered efforts, gives all shutters or blinds that are made to the wrong specifications to a Habitat for Humanity Re-Store. In 2017, Rockwood purchased 25 bicycles and organized a team building activity for the Sales Team to assemble them, and later donated them to Together We Rise, a 501(c)3 organization benefiting children in the foster care system. Jennifer Baur serves on the National Board of Directors for Lemonade Day, is a Silver Sponsor for The Home Depot Foundation benefiting wounded Veterans, as well as a Habitat for Humanity Volunteer working with The Home Depot Foundation on projects benefiting America’s Veterans.
