Southern is first distributor and first from PHCP industry to be included in magazine's list.
Fortune magazine has chosen Southern Pipe & Supply as one of its “Top 100 Medium-Sized Companies to Work For in the U.S.” With this accolade, Southern Pipe & Supply became the first Top 100 company in America chosen within the plumbing, heating and air conditioning, waterworks, and industrial distribution industry. More exceptional still, Southern Pipe & Supply is the first wholesaler in any industry that has received this honor. This is the first national recognition for being a great workplace for the company.
These rankings are based entirely on the feedback from employees who completed an anonymous “Trust Index” survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience behaviors that create a great workplace, the degree of support for employees' personal and professional lives and the authenticity of relationships with colleagues.
Jay Davidson, president of Southern Pipe, said: “Culture with us is not a cool perk or a slogan. A culture is something that arises completely out of the persons working in an organization. We call our employees family members,¹ and our family members are rock stars. We are fortunate to have a company full of family members who sincerely care for each other, have altruistic attitudes, and possess strong desires to be the best in the industry. I am truly blessed to be able to work among such wonderful folks.”
