Asa and Audra purchased Warren Monument Company in late 2010. Warren Monument had been in business since 1969. By 2016 our business had grown significantly and we were faced with the decision of having to stay where we at and tell customers we were "booked" and could not help them, or move to a larger facility. After searching for viable existing buildings with no luck, we were faced with an even larger challenge of performing a new build. We purchased 5 acres immediately off of I-35 in Guthrie spring of 2017. Late summer of 2017 we broke ground and opened our new state of the art facility early spring 2018 and renamed our business Nelson Monument Company.
Asa and Audra have five adult sons, with two of them currently on staff. With a total of seven full time employees presently and a capacity handle twice the amount of work we are currently creating, we feel like we are well positioned for the future growth we will work hard to bring our way. "We have big plans. We are young, energetic, ambitious and have some fantastic employees who will be critical to helping us achieve our goals over the next 5-10 years and beyond. We are not looking to be the largest monument company out there, we are just looking to be the best one around."
