3 Company Highlights from 2018
2018 is coming to a close, and now we’re looking ahead to 2019, which marks our 10th year anniversary. In this last year, we’ve had a lot of growth, but we’ve also had several challenges. We’d like to take a moment and reflect on the highlights that shaped 2018 for us here at SERVPRO of Burke County.
Large Loss at Martinsville Speedway
As a Large Loss franchise, we are apt to be called to distant places to clean up and restore damages. Earlier this year, we were summoned to Martinsville Speedway in Virginia to restore the racetrack after there was significant flooding. Not only did some of our crew travel to help, but they also had the opportunity to ride on the race track in our green, SERVPRO vehicles
SERVPRO Team Building 2018
Since 2009, we’ve grown from a trio to a large team of over 50 employees. That’s why this year, we decided to host our first, company-wide team building event. We took part of the day off to travel to Blowing Rock where we did team-building activities at a ropes course. It was a great opportunity to bring employees together, especially since we have gotten so large!
Storm Response to Hurricane Florence
Many of us at SERVPRO of Burke County have ties to Wilmington, so it was only natural that we deployed there after the catastrophic damage from Hurricane Florence. We had crews there for nearly a month, initially working in unfavorable conditions. But as a result, we were able to restore a church and some of its affiliated school buildings!
Looking Forward to 2019
As next year approaches, we’re looking at the obstacles we’ve overcome and where we hope to go next. We’re proud of our growth over the last 9 years, and we’re excited to see as we enter our 10th. We’re humbled to be able to serve this community, and we hope to continue doing so for many years to come.
