Good Customer Support

"I will say this about Provenza: they took a bad situation and through good customer support, made it tolerable. They have earned my respect and business. You and Larry were also very helpful in following up and keeping on Provenza to get this done. I appreciate that as well. See you Tuesday morning.  Thank you!"

End of an Era

Upon the absorbtion and consolidation of the Barrett Carpet Mill Brand into Kraus Carpets



You and your team should be recognized and complimented for your efforts and accomplishments. The metro New York territory is an incredibly difficult territory in which to develop and administer profitable sales of any product. Lane Sales provided the highest level of sales achievements in that territory in the approximately thirty five year history of Barrett prior to you agreeing to take on the task. Unfortunately the great promise of Barrett did not materialize adequately to support those efforts. Best wishes for continued success for you and the entire Lane Sales team.

A testament


Thanks Mark, it was a fantastic month, glad we were able to help out with the Color Age job. Its a small world, smaller in this business so you never know. I can say that the entire Lane Sales team has made this as smooth a process as possible, a testament to the true professionalism that Lane brings to this industry. Thank you and wishing you and all at Lane Sales all the best. 

Thank You,
