Our growth strategy focuses on aligning with companies and employees who are committed to best-in-class service standards and building trusting relationships with customers. Without the Summit Companies teams in place today, this award would not be possible,” stated Evrard.
Throughout the pandemic, Summit Companies continued offering the same high-quality services to customers, as fire and life safety solutions was deemed an essential service. Increased health and safety protocols were established for each location, dependent on local and federal recommendations.
