E.E. Ward is coming off an award year in 2011; we want to continue to push ourselves in 2012.
Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) January 24, 2012
Move out of the way for E.E. Ward Moving & Storage. The Columbus movers had a strong year in 2011. They were the recipients of the Angie's List Super Service Award, made Columbus Business First's Fast 50 2011 List and were nominated for the 2011 Columbus Chamber of Commerce's Small Business Leader Award.
"E.E. Ward is proud to have such a dedicated team of Columbus, Ohio movers to serve our community with excellence," said Otto Beatty III, co-owner of E.E. Ward. "We owe the residents of Columbus a huge thank you for counting on us for their moving needs."
The Angie's List Super Service Award is given to companies that earn a minimum number of reports during the Reporting Period, maintain an "A" rating from their clients and abide by Angie's List operational guidelines. Angie's List is the nation's leading provider of consumer reviews for local and health providers in over 500 service categories. Only 5 percent of all the businesses rated on Angie's List are bestowed this honor.
To be nominated for the Small Business Leader Award the Columbus Chamber of Commerce required the company have fewer than 500 employees and be a member of The Chamber. The categories included the following:
- Adapt & Innovate
- Diversity Leadership
- Emerging Excellence
- Young Professional Leadership
The Columbus movers of E.E. Ward were runner-up for the Diversity Leadership Award. Their minority-owned company made a direct impact on the marketplace, and promoted inclusion in the workplace, as well as the community.
The Columbus Business First's Fast 50 2011 List included privately held companies based in Central Ohio with at least $1 million in annual sales for the past three years. Ranking 27 out of 50, E.E. Ward grew from a primarily local company into a recognized leader in relocation and storage services, including office and industrial. Beatty III and Brian Brooks, grew the moving offerings even more to include services that won't be found at many other Columbus moving companies.
Beginning in 1881 with a team of horses, a wagon and two helpers, William S. Ward and his father, John T. Ward founded one of the oldest African-American-owned companies in the country, the Ward Transfer Line. Today it is known as E.E. Ward Moving & Storage, but its mission is still the same, to provide their customers with an unmatched sense of comfort and security during the relocation process.
