Cary has been with TWR since April of 1995. He worked as a carpenter for a while and then was promoted to become a TWR Foreman, managing jobsites and crews for nearly a decade. In the fall of 2004, Cary was again promoted, this time to Area Manager, taking on the role of overseeing a group of Foreman. When Rick Newton, the former Customer Service Manager, announced his retirement, TWR knew just the person to fill the very big shoes being left behind. Cary accepted the position and looks forward to many more years of success and being a part of the TWR Framing family.
In 2012, TWR’s relationship with Woodside Homes began and it has proven to be a successful partnership. Woodside Homes is a progressive homebuilder, involved in a number of programs aimed at adding value to their operation and project, including CAL/SHARP (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program). Internally, they created the Trades Council, whose goals are to create better and more efficient homes by partnering first with the Contractors as well as creating an even flow process. TWR congratulates Woodside Homes on their innovative approach to homebuilding and looks forward to many more successful years together.

For over three decades DR Horton has been building some of our nation’s finest neighborhoods and in that time has grown to become America’s largest homebuilder. TWR has had the good fortune to work alongside DR Horton, framing many of those communities throughout the southwest.
The partnership began in 2001 and has weathered many ups and downs of the housing industry together. In celebration of a 15-year relationship milestone, listed are some of the highlights of the partnership. The first project TWR collaborated with DR Horton on in 2001, was “Hawthorne” in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Following were many more, including “Copper Moon at Wolf Creek” in Temecula, CA in 2005, and in 2010, “53 Melrose” in Carlsbad, CA. The most recent projects TWR and DR Horton continue to proudly collaborate on are “Kensington Pointe” in Winchester, CA and “Motif” in Glendora, CA. TWR looks forward to many more years of a great working relationship with DR Horton, “America’s Builder.”

Highlight on TWR, behind the scenes.
This year marked a special year in TWR’s history 30 years in business. Although we would like to say it was a consistent flow of work with perfect production schedules and unlimited budgets that kept us in business, we all know that would be a false statement. This last 30 years has seen some of the highest highs and the lowest lows in our industry and in our nation. Both of these extremes require a great deal of effort and commitment to see them through. What we believe is that it was the hard work and shared commitment of our core management team, foreman and staff that kept the wheels turning during the most trying times. Even when we were the most challenged, it was the level of support, and friendship that kept our spirits high. We are grateful for the level of commitment from each and every person in the TWR family. We are grateful for the past 30 years in business and the people and relationships that have made our Commitment to Excellence and Our will to Succeed a driving force in our culture here at TWR.

We have a shared vision in the work that we do together, which has fostered a great deal of respect, collaboration and success over our partnership with Melia Homes. TWR Project Manager, Tim Farnell expresses it this way,
We are so grateful for our relationship with Melia Homes. The Melia Homes team are some of the most delightful people we work with. We have great two-way communication, they are incredibly professional, and they are relationship-driven. We hope to enjoy a long lasting relationship with Melia Homes. We are truly grateful for Melia Homes.
It is through this level of respect that our relationship with Melia Homes has flourished for so long.

It is in these times that you come to appreciate clients that you have strong relationships with. When we look back over time, we can say TWR and Melia Homes are truly partners, and for that we are grateful!
