Hello dear friends – I want to sincerely thank everyone who sent thoughts, prayers, messages and gifts to my family during this difficult time. Our FBG family still grieves but are ever appreciative of the inspiration and purpose my father and our founder, Wayne Simmonds, provided. I’m so grateful that he believed in us enough to carry the company forward and grateful that he trusted me to lead the way. I learned so much from his generosity and the example he set by being a kind, fair, yet determined, businessman. The FBG culture he created is why people want to work with us and companies want to do business with us. We started as a family and we are still family. We promise to tell you more about him and his great legacy in a future issue.
Thanks to Wayne Simmonds’ vision and care for FBG, we became a 100% employee-owned company
