CFSA Staff Visits Church & Chapel Metal Arts Facility

Knowing it’s important to learn as much as possible about our CFSA members, the three full-time employees of CFSA recently paid a visit to one of our member companies headquartered in Chicago, not far from CFSA’s offices in Lake Bluff, Illinois. Frank Taddeo (Vice President) and Chuck Taddeo (President) of Church & Chapel Metal Arts Inc. graciously hosted Chris Lindom, Erin Russell, and George Buckley in mid-August and gave an in-depth tour of the their spacious facility just east of downtown Chicago. “It was fascinating to see the vast warehouse, the multiple production areas, and to meet the employees whose ‘customer first’ commitment requires that they regularly have to ship inventory – often customized – to their customers on very short notice,” said Lindom, CFSA’s Project Manager. Added Russell, “It just gives us a better understanding of the day-to-day challenges and successes of our member companies, and helps us to provide efficient and targeted membership service wherever possible.” Time and budget limitations restrict future CFSA staff “road trips” to member companies, but they are determined to reach out to more in the future!
