50 Years History
Let us take this opportunity to introduce you to our company, Caffco International.
We hope that by learning about the comprehensive nature of our business, you will be better able to determine how we can best serve your particular needs, now and in the future.
For more than half a century, Caffco has grown and evolved into an industry leader, thanks to a few sound business concepts and dedicated associates from around the world.
The outcome is one-of-a-kind Company able to survive by serving the diverse and discriminating needs of its growing customer base. It is said that an institution is the long shadow of and individual. This is certainly the case with Caffco, whose history traces back to 1950 when Jimmy Thompson opened a modest flower shop in Alabama’s capital city.
His original principals are still exemplified: to work hard and do things right and to serve our customers to the best of our ability. He also believed that ordinary people could achieve extraordinary results, given the opportunity to tackle challenges in an atmosphere that fosters teamwork and caring. That belief holds true today.
Those early values remain key to our success, enabling us to stay on course as we navigate our way into the 21st century. Throughout the world in our industry, the name Caffco for fifty years has been synonymous with quality products and service. Our highly trained staff works closely with customers, beginning with the first handshake or phone call. Lasting partnerships are formed and thrive long after the sale is completed. In an age of specialization, few companies such as ours offer such diverse manufacturing capabilities. The heart of our company is manufacturing and service.
We’re proud of our operations, where dedicated managers and creative designers produce products that have made Caffco and our customers a success in the marketplace. We believe in sharing our success with our employees and the communities where we operate.
In Asia, for instance, we have strived to improve the quality of life by building primary schools and a medical clinic, and donating much needed equipment to fire departments. Additionally, we allocated significant funds for the latest environmental controls and provide industry-leading working conditions for our employees. When customers visit our Asian and Alabama facilities, they are impressed by what they see and delight in being part of our effort to make a difference. We sincerely hope that you will take the opportunity to see for yourself what makes Caffco so unique.
Since our simple beginning as a local retail florist, we continue to write our history each step of the way- from retailer to wholesaler, to importer to manufacturer. Every step has been taken, in an effort to assure ourselves of our ability to deliver to our customers the right products that meet their special needs.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Caffco.
