Our Best Ability is Dependability!!

In 1984 Ken Schroeder & Ray Christy were both framing houses in the same sub-division.  They bumped into each other and started discussing jobs they had worked on.  It became an instant friendship which has continued for nearly 40 years.  In 1985, Ken and Ray started AWS Carpenter Contractors with the vision of providing the highest quality work from start to finish.  Since that time AWS has grown from a small shop with 10 employees to a state-of-the-art office and production facility with 60+ team members based in Clearwater Florida. 

AWS is a Certified General Contractor (CGC) with an all-encompassing team handling every step of a job from estimating to design, production, and installation.  All aspects of the job are handled in house with no outside sub-contractors. Their best ability is dependability which has grown to be the core of their operation.

In the decades since starting the company Ken and Ray have never had to advertise their business.  Their business comes as a result of their outstanding service, production and installation with the guarantee that the job will be done right. 

AWS services the Southeast United States handling Commercial, Institutional and Tenant millwork & case work. Projects which include Courthouses, Theme Parks, Hospitals, Medical Facilities, Law Offices and more have provided a platform for Ken and Ray to give back to their community.  Through partnerships with local charities and community organizations AWS has continued to support the people and businesses around them.
