In July 2006, Tom and Matt purchased three Ace Hardware stores: Anaconda, Butte and Livingston. Their vision then, and still to this day, is to be “the best employer in the three communities.” The supporting mission statement for this objective is: to create an experience that positively impacts the lives of our employees, customers and community. Tom and Matt believe if they foster a culture where employees love to work the result will be excellent customer service.
Tom and Matt, and their wives, Chris and Kelley, feel strongly about supporting the communities where they do business with both time and contributions. They have taken on various roles with different boards and community projects including but not limited to Big Brother Big Sisters, Rotary, food kitchens, local churches, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), college scholarships, youth sports and community arts programs. Matt and Tom invite everyone to follow their model by encouraging others to be leaders in their respective businesses, volunteer groups and communities…we all have something to give, even if it is just time. Strong, involved, committed communities are the fabric of our nation. It is one of the few places where together, we can bring about change for the good of all of the citizens, our neighbors.
