Haynes Service Company: Built by family


Haynes Service Co. is no doubt a family-operated business. The couple’s 3 children are highly involved as part of the operation at this time.  

Their oldest, Zach, is in charge of new construction home building; Luke oversees the industrial portion, working with factories and bidding and overseeing jobs; and Emma, the youngest, is working at the company as the personal assistant at this time, post college.  

Susan and Andy are also very proud grandparents of a 1-year-old granddaughter, Graycen. So they make as much family time as possible.  

But Susan says with a laugh that the family that works all week together, doesn’t necessarily want to play together all weekend. She’s OK with that.  

More family works there. Andy’s cousin, Billy Beech, oversees the welding and fabrication department. Their nephew, Steven Taylor, is over the electrical and plumbing area. The newest family member to join the team is Madison Haynes, who just married Zach; she works as an administrative assistant. Morgan Haynes, a nurse, is married to son, Luke; she helps out at the grocery store when needed.  

“It’s all in the family, here,” explains Susan. On to bigger projects While Andy admits that he’s looking forward to semi-retirement in the future, he said for now, they roll with the changes necessary to continue to help their company grow. Over the years, they’ve witnessed computers, digital now, find a place within their company.  

But hard work is still a must requirement at Haynes Service Company. “Andy has always told our employees, ‘do it how you would do you own house.’”  

There will always be less than acceptable employees to come along, but Susan says most of theirs over the years have done what they’ve been asked. “I think it’s all in how you treat people.”  

The company has certainly garnered as a result enough strength to take on the big jobs. “We wired Unionville High School . . . Lowe’s, Kroger and a lot of Walgreens,” said Andy.  

While they specialize in those “big jobs,” Andy says he’s not beyond repairing someone’s lamp either.  

Susan laughs, revealing that Andy is plain and simple a “work-a-holic.” After taking care of some business over the phone, Andy said, “I would say probably one of our more notable projects that we’ve worked on and are currently working on is Uncle Nearest Distillery. I am the general contractor . . . been with Keith and Fawn Weaver for 3 years in July.”  

There are surprises on the horizon out there,” advised Andy, who is spending a lot of time at the distillery.  

“It’s going to be a big thing for our county,” he said. “They’ve invested a lot of money, time and a lot of their life to bring some good things to our community.”  

Andy said 25 years ago, he would have never dreamed of working on such big jobs. Still, he doesn’t stop short of giving credit where he believes credit is due. “I credit every bit of this to God.”  

With that, he excused himself from the conversation. Customers were waiting for his response, he said.  

Susan said life in their business is sometimes fast and furious. Walking out to the front parking lot, Susan points out that she’s finally earned a new extension on to her office.  

This business owner, woman of strong faith, mom and grandma simply smiles at the thought of it all. “We started our business on a wing and a prayer and have been blessed with success,” said Susan.
