Owner / President
Garry Figler is a man motivated by family, faith, and the desire to succeed.
A love for woodworking developed in high school in New York and then was fostered in a small wood shop where Garry apprenticed and spent his first year manning the joiner, planer, and sander.
In Orlando in 1992, Garry founded Advanced Millwork Inc. in a small 1000 sq. ft. facility with just a handful of employees. Through hard work, perseverance, and the quality of the work he produced, the shop grew quickly. By 2002 Garry purchased the 40,000 sq. ft. building that now houses AMI and employs just over 100 people.
The people that work for AMI are not just employees they are family and everyone shares in the success of the company. Monthly barbeques, fishing trips, and annual Christmas parties are just some of the ways for everyone at AMI to gather beyond the workplace.
Garry enjoys fishing, hunting, traveling with his family, mentoring children, remaining active in his church and doting on his beautiful wife and two lovely daughters.
Garry Figler’s philosophy for success is simple – whether personally or professionally always surround yourself with people smarter and wiser than you.
