And the award goes to……….Pittsburg Tank & Tower Group & the Johnston family. In 2015 PTTG was named the small business of the year by KYNDLE. Just five years later, we received the 2020 Business of the Year award from the Chamber of Commerce. The announcement was made on February 6th at the annual dinner held by the Chamber.
Here’s some excerpts from Chamber President Ellen Redding’s speech: “PTTG is a company that demonstrates the value of entrepreneurship, community engagement and drive for growth,”
“Entrepreneurs play a key role in any economy. These are the people who have the skills and initiative necessary to anticipate current and future needs and bring good new ideas to market.”
“From one company to now four. From humble beginnings of two employees to now employing over 400. From doing work in one state to now operating in over 50 countries. All while keeping the home office in Henderson KY. PTTG and the Johnston family share its success with our community.”
“Education, Health and Wellness and Giving Back is the common theme in this workplace. Students from HCHS co-op here, fresh fruit and yoga classes are offered here, and over 170 employees ran in the Tri Fest 5K. One of the most ambitious and exciting contributions to the community came when team members from PTTG, constructed and erected a steel bridge at John James Audubon State Park accessed around the Wilderness Lake Trail. And in celebrating their 100 years. – they had a block party in downtown Henderson.”
The employees of PTTG wish to express our sincere gratitude to the Johnston family for their tireless efforts and the excellent work environment we enjoy as a result of their dedication. Congrats to the Johnstons and we’re looking forward to continuing the success story!
