At Preferred Materials, we’re about people serving people. Our employees are the stars. They set us apart from our competition, and they are the reason why customers prefer doing business with us. Their stories help us tell our story. We recognize our “star” employees who exemplify these characteristics:

  • SMART, PROACTIVE PARTNERS. Beyond the products we sell, we’re your partners who want to help you build your business. Sharing national best practices. Taking the time to listen to you. Bringing our team together to strategize with you on a regular basis.
  • COMMUNITY-MINDED. Community is family and that’s what gives meaning to our lives. Working together with each other and with customers, our Preferred team shares their time and talent to make the community where we live a better place.
