Tuesday evening Statesboro headquartered Sack Company was named the Ultimate Honoree at the 26th Georgia Family Business of the Year Honoration.

The event is hosted by the Cox Family Enterprise Center at Kennesaw State University and is supported by the Secretary of State, Brad Raffenperger.

The category for which they were in, Sustainability,  focuses on “generous and equitable treatment of employees, scrupulously fair dealings with customers, a focus on occupational health and security, charitable contributions to the community, and/or other examples of positive impact on the community, minimizing the ecological footprint, producing excellent products, and pursuing fair long term returns for all stakeholders.”

The company was invited to the event after making into the top three finalists. Other finalist included C12 Aviation and Jones Petroleum Company.

“We knew going in that we were in the top three but never expected the ultimate honoration. This was the perfect way to kick off our 75th year in business as well as to celebrate the successes of our company.  We’d never be here without the many families that make up our company, our supporters, our clients and our communities. Here’s to 75 more years!” Madison Roesel, VP of Sales, said.
