Apple Door of Richmond
Apple Door of Richmond was founded in 1973 by Hubert Apple, Jr. Hubert utilized his experience as a door installer to start the company which was focused at that time on commercial service and repair and later diversified to include residential service and sales. In 1978, after serving 5 years in the Navy, Hubert’s son, Dan Apple, joined the business as the general manager of sales, marketing, and accounting. Dan applied his acquired skills in leadership and teamwork to the business and the company quickly began to expand.
After 33 years of service, in 2012, Dan Apple retired and sold the company to long term employees, Shannon Perkins and Tammy Vreeland. Shannon Perkins began her career as a receptionist for Apple Door nearly 18 years ago and worked her way up through the ranks, serving in accounting, customer service, sales and operations management before assuming the position of President and becoming a partner. Shannon lives in Powhatan with her husband Tim and their three beautiful daughters Madeline, Audrey and Charlotte.
Tammy Vreeland came to Apple Door Systems in 2007 as the Company’s Controller and quickly became a key part of the management team. Tammy previously served as the Financial Operations Manager for a nationwide consulting firm and ultimately moved into the role of CFO for Apple Door becoming a partner in 2012. Tammy lives in Disputanta with her husband DJ and beautiful daughters Lacey and Zoey.
Tammy and Shannon hold a unique position in the door and access industry as one of the few companies that are one hundred percent female owned. This female perspective of the customer experience and buying process has allowed Shannon and Tammy to provide customers with a very personalized boutique experience. Their one-of-a-kind state of the art design studios allow customers to browse options and design their dreams in amazing comfort and luxury. Apple Door of Richmond has spearheaded the addition of new products to the statewide product line including the addition of cutting edge products such as barn doors, antique refurbished doors and fully custom doors.
Under new leadership, Apple Door of Richmond has continued to be an industry leader and has maintained its reputation for unparalleled customer service and well trained technicians. In 2015, Apple Door of Richmond opened a second location in the West End of Richmond. Both locations offer a contemporary showroom showcasing the latest products and knowledgeable staff to help Richmond area customers find the perfect product for their homes!
