Suddath 2017 Year in Review
We also took an early and aggressive approach in Electronic Logging Device (ELD) compliance and training with our van operators. Now that government regulations mandating ELD usage are in effect, all our drivers were prepared for this transition before it was mandatory. They are the fuel that keeps our company moving forward, and we want to go above and beyond to make sure they can continue to be the best. As a company, we believe it is important to give back. Each year, Suddath chooses to make an investment to keep a year-round disaster relief trailer fully-stocked with relief equipment and supplies like generators, first aid kits, water, food, cooking supplies, sanitary items along with a disaster response team who is ready at a moment’s notice. Our response team arrives on scene with our relief trailer in the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster to help our employees get back on their feet. Suddath is a company with a footprint spanning coast-to-coast in the United States. In a year with a very active hurricane season, our preparedness, emergency response and keeping a well-stocked disaster relief trailer were put to the test. When employees can get back on their feet faster, they, in turn, are able to serve their communities and our customers in the aftermath of a disaster. We also entered into many new partnerships this year, completing projects for large government organizations, Fortune 500 corporations, hotels and resorts, and large medical research facilities. All our business lines continue to see growth and in 2017 we became the largest commercial moving company in North America. In 2018, we will continue to drive operational excellence in the areas of safety, quality, cost management and capacity development. Looking onward to 2018, we launched Suddath University at the tail end of 2017, to improve consistency, accuracy, safety and ensure accountability for achieving the highest levels of customer service quality as a market leader. What We Do Matters ® to our employees, partners and customers, and we are proud of our accomplishments this past year and excited about our promising future. On behalf of the board of directors of The Suddath Companies, thank you for your continued support. To our employees, our most sincere appreciation for continuing to drive innovation in your respective business units and always making the customer first in everything you do, each and every day.
Sincerely, Michael J. Brannigan President and CEO The Suddath Companies
