2019 rapid growth continuation at Able Moving & Storage bolstered by industry recognition for safety record and company's family culture from American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) and Washington business Journal (WBJ).
MANASSAS, Va., April 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- First quarter recognition from AMSA at its Fleet Safety Awards Dinner and from WBJ as a Family-Owned Business Award Honoree set the stage for 2019 to follow successive years that have been peppered with industry awards and accomplishments for Able.
"These awards are important to us because they celebrate a sense of pride for the employees that choose to make Able their home," says Able CEO Joe Singleton, "and they showcase this for anyone else that may be looking for a positive work environment they can call home." (www.ablemoving.com)
Able adamantly maintains a hold on the family-style culture that the Singletons founded the company on in 1987, and was honored to have the WBJ recognize them for longevity, adaptability, family involvement, and the family's non-profit and community participation.
President and Co-founder Jim Singleton reflects on what it took to become a company that has grown 500% in the last 7 years, yet still magnifies the values that it was built on. "Cultivating the interest that others have shown in becoming part of our family experience has been an undertaking that we have not taken lightly, and we work extremely hard to integrate that interest with our culture at every turn," he says.
Chuck Ware came to Able to head Training and Development after 27 years at JK Moving, and was proud to accept the AMSA Fleet Safety Award in Houston March 25th. "The degree to which Able is capable of mixing together industry-recognizable safety practices with a fun working environment make coming to work a pleasure," Chuck says.
Practices that Able has been employing landed them the AMSA Independent Trucker of the Year Award last year, empowered them to be the first mover to ever make WBJ's Fastest Growing Companies List, and have promoted double digit growth across of all its divisions in the past 5 years.
In addition to validating the great job their employees do in servicing their clients, Able is also aware that industry recognition shines a spotlight on their practices, and it welcomes this scrutiny. "We feel privileged to be able to share our best practices with the industry," says Chief Operating Officer Steve Kuhn. "Questioning how we benefit the industry as a whole is something that we regularly ask ourselves as a company," he adds.
Able executives recognize that accepting awards with dignity and grace honor the efforts that employees have made, and have come to greatly value the organizations that report on these achievements.
"I will humbly step up and accept any award at any time that brings well deserved attention to the outstanding group of employees that have joined our family," declares Joe Singleton, "and Able thanks the American Moving and Storage Association and Washington Business Journal for taking notice of our achievements."
