Elaine Pennartz, Owner
In 2002, after working as shipping manager for an international manufacturing company, Elaine founded Texas Home Base Mail Forwarding Service. She saw the need for a mail forwarding service in Texas that could offer personal service to the client. Many mail forwarding services become so large that the client becomes just a number. Elaine seeks to give each client personal and quality service at all times. She learned the value of quality while working for the ISO 9000/2000 manufacturing company where her husband, Bobby, was Quality Manager. Elaine and Bobby were married 50 years in December 2015. They always joke that they were married as children, which is almost true. They were high school sweethearts and married the same year they graduated from high school in Wichita Falls, Texas. They are the parents of three daughters, three son-in-laws, and have been blessed with nine beautiful grandchildren. When Elaine left her shipping manager job in 2002, she needed a stay-at-home job. Her ninety year old mother had come to live with her and Bobby after Elaine’s father passed away. Her mother lived with Elaine and Bobby for six years until her passing. Elaine knew shipping, mailing, and quality. These skills lead her to create Texas Home Base Mail Forwarding Service. Elaine has purposely grown the business in a slow, but steady manner. Because of the slower growth, Elaine has established procedures and policies that have made Texas Home Base a quality, personal business. 

Julie Stewart, Scanning Manager
The mail scanning service of Texas Home Base has exploded. This growth has dictated that Elaine put her daughter, Julie, to work. Julie Stewart has great experience in the area of mailing. She ran the Distance Education mailroom at the University of Texas in Austin, before she married and had three children. Julie was Valedictorian of her high school class and now home schools her three children. She is a great asset to Texas Home Base. 

Bobby Pennartz, Valuable Assistant and Advisor
Bobby is a valuable part of Texas Home Base. He contributes his knowledge and skills in building fixtures, and his strong arm when the mail is too heavy. Bobby also gives support and expert advise when it comes to business decisions. Because of Bobby’s past experience as quality manager, his advise is extremely valuable.

Dru Pennartz Morrison, Accounts Manager 

Because of the growth of Texas Home Base we have had to add a new employee. Dru Pennartz Morrison has taken over managing the accounts. Dru is the grand daughter of Elaine and Bobby. She has worked for a major international ministry in Texas and last worked for a local dental surgeon. Dru is a valuable addition to Texas Home Base. She is bringing new ideas and knowledge to us and will help us to continue to grow.

Aaron Morrison, Shipping Manager

Our newest employee, Aaron Morrison, has experience as a manager at a local retail store and most recently worked with installing and shipping car audio equipment. As the shipping demands of Texas Home Base has grown, we were in need of a trusted employee to handle our day to day shipments. Aaron is not only a wonderful addition to our family through his marriage to Dru, he is also a valuable addition to Texas Home Base.
