Garrard Carpentry, Inc. Announces New Name, New President and New Woman-Owned Business Enterprise Status

Orlando, FL – Garrard Framing and Drywall, Inc., formerly Garrard Carpentry, Inc., is proud to announce its updated company name, which better reflects the company’s core strengths in the commercial and residential construction industry.

In addition, the company has named Julie Garrard as its new president. Former president Louis Garrard will now serve as the vice president for the Winter Haven office. Julie Garrard, who holds a general contractors license, has been with the company for 8 years. Previously, she spent over 7 years in the insurance industry, where she gained valuable residential and commercial construction knowledge working with claims in the wake of the massive damage left by Hurricane Charley.

Under Garrard’s leadership, the company has been awarded numerous sizeable contracts, including work at universities, assisted living facilities, and retirement communities. In addition, Garrard Framing and Drywall, Inc. recently earned a Minority, Women, and Florida Veteran Certification through the State of Florida’s Department of Management Services, a widely recognized and respected certification.

“Garrard Framing and Drywall has always been dedicated to quality and service,” says Garrard, “and I believe that these changes, along with our new certification as a woman-owned enterprise, will help us to better serve our customers and community.”

As a certified women-owned enterprise, Garrard Framing and Drywall, Inc. makes it easy for other companies and government agencies to receive high-quality drywall and framing services while meeting state and federal goals regarding conducting business with minority and women-owned small business. The company currently has offices in Winter Haven and Tampa and a new office is coming soon to Orlando.
