The company was started in 1967 by J. Michael Foxx to provide income for him while attending graduate school. The company's rapid growth and success caused Mike to stay with it rather than looking for another job after graduation with his MBA. In 1973, fresh out of high school, Ralph Batsel and Don Flecky were hired to work at Foxx as part-time evening janitors for the (at that time) huge wage of $2.25 per hour. What began as part-time jobs while going to college, turned into full-time positions in the operations side of the business, and ultimately became careers. In 1979, Mike Foxx sold the business to Ralph and Don, and each maintains 50% ownership in the company to the present time.
Both Ralph and Don individually are licensed general contractors in their own right, and each is active in the operation of the business. Foxx currently services commercial and industrial customers primarily in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, but also in parts of Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego Counties.
How We Operate
The company is managed by Ralph and Don, who are active in the business and often are directly involved on the job site. Ralph is most often involved in bidding, planning, and inspecting work, as well as dealing with customer requests. Don is more likely to be found in the office overseeing the administrative functions of the business, but is active on jobs also. The person with primary responsibility for our services and employees is our Operations Manager, Randy Santa Maria, who schedules and coordinates all operations. Calls for service typically are directed to him, and scheduled, carried out, and billed under his direction. Beyond Randy, we have a staff of supervisors, and under their direction are the employees and tradesmen that carry out the actual work.
Foxx Building Services, Inc. offers on-call emergency services 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Our on-call services can be obtained by calling our toll-free "800" number and following the recorded instructions, which alerts our person on call who will return your call within 10 minutes or less. We also provide the cell phone and home phone numbers of the key personnel in our organization (including the owners) so our customers can always reach us. If you receive an emergency call in the middle of the night, services can be obtained from us without ever leaving the comfort of your own bed!
