The origin of Nine 14 is connected to the company’s founder, Roosevelt “Monty” Montgomery, Jr, and his humble beginnings in rural South Georgia. His father, Roosevelt Montgomery, Sr., designed and built the family home on a 1 acre lot in Waycross, GA. He performed this by working with other skilled craftsmen in the neighborhood and using limited resources to complete this project. Montgomery, Sr., a retired Staff Sargent served in the Army Air Corps as an Engineer in WWII. To execute his construction plans he teamed up with other veterans, neighbors, and co-workers that were highly skilled in construction, roofing, masonry, carpentry, and landscaping. Lacking enough money to accomplish this project he used the resources that were available to build a structurally sound house. He used the sand from the nearby Satilla River to create mortar for the cinder blocks, and he bartered for wood and roofing materials by providing his skills as a carpenter for other construction projects. The house was completed within 1 year free from debt and the family was able to move in with the assistance of neighbors and friends. Montgomery’s determination was a testimony to his faith, his leadership, and the motivation of the men to successfully deliver on the construction of the new home. Lifelong friendships were established and have been passed down to their descendants.
Nine 14 (914) is the house number for the home on that 1 acre lot and it still stands today. In memory of Montgomery Sr. in his exercise of faith to build a dream from scratch, to continue on despite financial challenges, provide leadership and the wherewithal to deliver on the drafted plans, and build permanent relationships, we have adopted these principles as the driving force of the “Nine 14 Way”. Nine 14’s inception as an IT Services and Solutions firm an IT hardware Value Added Reseller uses these guiding principles in its business practices, client services, and employee relationships.
