Chapel Valley Launches a Video!

Chapel Valley has officially launched their first company video. Established in 1968, we’ve come a long way however, some things never change— including our reputation for impeccable quality, excellent customer service, and a safe workplace.

In this video, leaders from our company share who Chapel Valley is and what makes our company successful.
Shooting the video was a great experience for the Chapel Valley team. We worked with Freedom Digital Media, a Baltimore-based video production company that we have used in the past for photography. With all the recent rain in the DC metro-area, we were lucky to have beautiful weather over the two days of filming. For our first video, everything went exceptionally well thanks to our production team, video cast, and customers who allowed us to film on their properties.

This video will be posted on our website, shared on social media, and used to help promote our brand and recruit top personnel to our company.
