Eric M Kormos
I started in this industry when I was 12 years old. I started at the bottom, basically the clean up kid, the material carrier, the shoveler the raker, any job the higher ups didn’t want to do. Jobs that needed done, just didn’t require a lot of skill to complete. I did this a couple days a week thru the summers, and while on school breaks until I was 17. I left the construction industry for 7 years and did various jobs. I came back when I was 24 years old and started as a laborer/ apprentice. After 3-4 years I took over as foreman. I lead a framing crew and any other jobs related to field work for the next 5-6 years. I then became the finish out guy for about 3-4 years. I was then moved into the office for estimating and project supervision. After 2 years in this position I started in sales, and I still hold this same position plus many more. In January of 2013 I purchased Stephen Black Builders. I'm now the owner but still very hands on. I often physically work on the projects I sell. I believe it keeps me in touch with the current project & future projects better. I also do most of our designing for additions and remodels as I did with the old company. I have drawn a few homes in the past. My goal for Somrok Inc. dba Stephen Black Builders is to do the best possible job for our customers and create relationships along the way. I believe it's important to have a personal touch in each project. I know I appreciate the same approach when I make a large investment.
I started in the construction industry in 1993 after four years in the Air Force as an aircraft mechanic. My building career started as I went to work for an Amish framer as a laborer. I was responsible for carrying lumber, building walls and cleaning up. Years passed and my knowledge and skills developed. When the owner closed shop to take over the family farm, I went to work for a friend of his. I was hired as a driver and framer, and worked my way to foreman of the crew. In this time, my knowledge base grew to include roofing, siding and more cosmetic aspects of building a new home. My crew and I framed many houses all over central Pennsylvania until 2001 when the owner decided that he no longer wanted to build houses, but build utility sheds close to home. I responded to an ad in the paper from Stephen Black Builders, Inc., and was hired as a foreman doing framing and miscellaneous jobs in new homes and additions. In thirteen years with Stephen Black Builders Inc., I’ve learned and refined many skills in the building trades. My responsibilities are mostly working on the jobsite daily but also include some management, sales and quote preparation.
