We're thrilled to share some exciting news––we've been honored with the prestigious Veteran Business of the Year award by the National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC), a testament to our commitment and hard work.
Our Journey to Recognition
The journey to this moment has been both challenging and rewarding. When NVBDC recognized the pivotal roles veteran-owned businesses play in our community, it was a proud moment for us to stand among those celebrated. Our CEO, Derrick Murdock, graciously accepted the award on our behalf, emphasizing the importance of this recognition.
A Personal Reflection from Our CEO
Derrick shared his thoughts: “It's a tremendous honor. Hiring veterans is our way of giving back to those men and women who have selflessly served our great country. They are disciplined, mission-focused, and reliable. We believe it's not only the right thing to do but also a sound business decision.”
The Significance of the Award
This award isn't just about growth and job creation. It reflects our commitment to social responsibility and community involvement. Since 1976, we have been striving to make a difference, not just in the packaging industry but in the lives of those who have served our nation.
Our Continued Efforts and Community Involvement
Our collaboration with organizations like Upstate Warrior Solutions (UWS) is a cornerstone of our community involvement. This year, we were proud sponsors of several UWS events, including the Palmetto Heroes Hike and numerous golf events. These initiatives, aimed at honoring South Carolina’s heroes, have been particularly close to our hearts.
Continued Commitment to Our Veterans and Our Community
As we continue to set benchmarks in the packaging industry and support our veterans, our journey is far more than just about business. It's about setting an example, leading with purpose, and making a difference where it counts.
