Innovation is part of our DNA
After 25 years in the industry, in 1974, Steve Baker’s father launched two family-owned small businesses: Baker Drywall and Triangle Plastering.
Steve, after graduating from Texas Tech with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, started out in Triangle Plastering in 1975. In 1983, Steve bought out Baker Drywall from his father, managing and growing that company for 23 years. Then in 2005, Baker Drywall merged with Triangle Plastering, which had been owned and operated by Steve’s brother Brad. Today Steve is the CEO of BakerTriangle, with more than 1,000 employees and five offices across Texas and one now open in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
A family approach
BakerTriangle has done business in more than 20 states, and Steve Baker remains true to its family business principles and the vision of his father and company founder Bob Baker. Many employees have been with the company for several decades and the company offers health insurance, a 401(k) program and profit sharing. Steve’s father passed away in 2011, but his vision and passion for quality is his legacy. Steve’s son, Bryan Baker, has become president of the Fort Worth office. The company actively recruits employees through its relationship with local colleges and has embraced social networking as well.
