Hobby Lobby is one of the most successful retail companies in America. David Green started the business in 1972 in Oklahoma City making frames in his garage at home. It has since grown to over 650 locations in 48 states as of 2016. Mr. Green and his family are devout Christians and those values have played a strong part in the development of the company, which is still privately held today. Keeping the company private has allowed them to donate significant portions of their profit to philanthropic causes through the years.
Fuller Group, Inc. first worked with Hobby Lobby in 2003, providing structural engineering services for their first two stores in Greenville, SC. Since that time, we have provided structural engineering services for over 450 of their stores nationwide. Our team has worked closely with Hobby Lobby and their architectural teams to continually improve and develop the structural designs emphasizing quality and constructability.
At times, it has been a challenge to work for such a rapidly growing company. The rapid pace has required us to be at the top of our game to ensure that we provide high quality work on a consistent basis. It is a continuing pleasure to work with a company with such strong integrity, and our staff is devoted to ensuring we provide the best support (both literally and figuratively) that we can for their structures.
