Truly a work-life balance experience!
For those who aren’t familiar, Fabuwood, a company that specializes in the production of luxurious but affordable kitchen cabinets, has been a long-time partner of FGC+. With us, they have outsourced their Shipping, Software Development and IT Departments.
Upon the invitation of our generous clients, our very own Fabuwood pros and leaders visited the company’s new building in Newark, New Jersey. During this time, they were able to immerse in the client company’s culture, were allowed to work side-by-side with onshore employees for further training and development, and were able to see first-hand how the organization functioned. SOM Edjee, OM Angelo, Rexnen, Ana and Mary Jane were able to spend valuable time in learning more about the client’s operations and ensuring that they continue to be satisfied with our services.
This is a first for FGC+ and was definitely a great experience, according to our team who also had fun with some down time in the concrete jungle where dreams are made of. There’s a saying that goes, “If you make it there, you can make it anywhere” – well, we’ve definitely made our mark and we can only aspire to work harder for more opportunities like this in the future.
It was the holiday of a life time. Lots of sites and sounds, and of course, there was plenty of delicious food! Our adventure in the US gave us a better understanding of how the business works. It opened our eyes to a whole new perspective – made us more competitive. It has given us the drive to become more successful.
– Angelo Villareal, FGC+ Operations Manager
The entire trip felt surreal. The weather was very cold but everyone gave us their warmest welcome. The facility was top-notch and the food was, too. After seeing everything firsthand, I’ve become more motivated to put in my best effort in everything that I do. We got to visit so many impressive places. We stayed there for about a week but I went home with a lifetime’s worth of new memories.
– Ana David, FGC+ Pro, Fabuwood IT Department
It was a trip of a lifetime and a memory that I will treasure forever. Our visit in the US gave us a better overview on how the business works. Also gave me an opportunity to know my onshore colleagues same time bond with them. I really had a great time and enjoyed every moment of it. I will treasure all the memories, friendship and acquired knowledge that I gained on the most memorable trip of my life.

I’m so blessed to be part of this trip. It is good to see finally the people we have been working with face to face. It was full of new learning that would definitely help us to become better on what we do. A great experience that we will always treasure. ~Will be forever grateful.

Ï am very grateful for the opportunity to meet our Fabuwood partners. Having the chance to see how our work impacts the Onshore Daily Operations gave us more perspective on how important each member of the team is. Fabuwood was very accommodating and friendly that we indeed felt that we are part of the family.
