Since 1974, Parker and Sons has proudly served Phoenix, Arizona and the surrounding areas. Nonetheless, we’re still honored to have won the Industry Leaders of Arizona (ILoA) Award for the contractor category. While the greatest recognition we could ever receive comes from our customers, this prestigious award is still a real point of pride for our business.
The Industry Leaders of Arizona Award
For 30 years now, the Industry Leaders of Arizona Award has been recognizing Arizona-based companies that have made a notable impact on both the state’s overall economy as well as those of the communities they serve. Companies can be publicly traded, privately held or not-for-profit, though they must meet ILoA’s standards for given industries.
Before they can be considered, companies must fill out and hand in packets that describe their business, including specific financial information. They must also be interviewed by IoLA’s selection committee. Each industry is weighted and judged by various standards, like those for growth, financial health, revenue and employee count.
The 2015 Commercial and Residential Contractors Award
This year, the ILoA awards were presented by AZ Business Magazine on February 4th. In total, five different industries were featured. Parker and Sons received the award for Commercial and Residential Contractors and will hold it for the next three years.
We greatly appreciate the time and energy that goes into putting these awards on and interviewing all the candidates. Parker and Sons is dedicated to living up to the stature that this award denotes by continuing to serve our customers in Arizona as best we can.
Other Awards Parker and Sons Have Won
Though this award certainly means a lot to our company, it’s not the first time we’ve been awarded one. In fact, for the past five years, Parker and Sons has been voted #1 in Ranking Arizona, the largest business poll in the entire state.
Like the IoLA awards, there are specific categories for each type of business. Customers can then vote on the best company in each one. It’s the only award of this kind in Arizona—where the voting public is completely in charge.
Last year, we were also very excited to win the BBB Business Ethics Awards. Though we’d like to think there are a number of credentials Parker and Sons could have on their resume, being known for ethics is definitely one of them.
However, receiving such an award from the Better Business Bureau is definitely an honor. The BBB of Central, Northern and Western Arizona is synonymous with ethical business practices. Winning a spot on this coveted list shows that our company is one that can produce profits and continue to grow while understanding ethical business practices and applying them every day. Our business plan is proof that success and ethics can go hand-in-hand.
This year, Parker and Sons is as dedicated as ever to winning more awards for our dedication to customer satisfaction. If you’d like to be a part of that, call us up at (602) 273-7247 and let us know how we can be of service.
