Number 1 on my list of favorite things is safety. So, this holiday season I have a lot to celebrate. As I write this column, my Mickey teammates are working on a streak of 260 straight days without a lost-time accident, and every day that this streak continues represents a new Mickey record. We know that when we work safely, we work productively. Our employees go home to their families every afternoon and they come back every morning ready to work. Our productivity improves the quality of our workmanship and our on-time delivery rate. That means happy customers and repeat business. Now do you see why safety is so high up on my list?

Another one of my favorite things is loyalty. I just reviewed the Mickey Employee Tenure List    and was very happy to see that over 40% of our 400-plus full-time Mickey teammates have been with the company for at least 5 years, and 30% of us have been here for 10 years or more. Four of our teammates celebrated their 40-year Mickey anniversaries this year – Debbie Deal, Rocky Barham, Reggie Horne and Mike Rabon. There are a couple of points to be made here. First, this must be a pretty good place to work because once people start here, they tend to stay for a long time. Second, imagine the experience we offer our customers who are looking for high quality equipment and services.

One more of my favorite things: growth. As a company we experienced tremendous growth in 2017. We built a brand new facility here in High Point dedicated to liftgate installation, and we acquired a new manufacturing location consisting of two facilities in Salem Township, PA to serve our growing Northeastern U.S. market.

Happy holidays and happy reading.
