“It is with pleasure that Well Master Corporation was able to attend the Industry Summit and Awards Ceremony as a finalist for the General Industry Service Award. Serving as a panelist for the morning meetings was an honor and many new contacts were made with colleagues of our industry in the Northeast. The various panels were informative and helpful in learning different perspectives on our industry and in particular how various companies are coping with the industry downturn.

Well Master was able to have four people at the evening banquet; two from Pennsylvania and two from our Colorado headquarters. I can tell you that this kind of event is very special for our people. Not only do they receive extra recognition for a job well done but also dressing to the nines and attending a formal event is very meaningful. They were further able to do a great job networking with various customers and industry folks in a wonderful social setting.

Thank you for the recognition these awards give to top notch companies but also in lifting public awareness of our industry and the economic impact we have in the communities where we work and live.” – April 2016

The other highly qualified speakers offered their unique perspective which was very informative to me as well as the audience.

2013 being the first year Supreme Services has been nominated and involved with the awards, there was a big question about everything involved, judging, sponsorships, and venue. We were brilliantly surprised in every category, the venue and ballroom were absolutely outstanding, first class all the way, the black tie dress code really added another element. The lighting and music truly transformed what could have been a boring hotel ballroom, into a dazzling red carpet event. The judging was fair, thorough and provided great feedback for our product line. Getting to mingle with other finalist was most likely the highlight of the night, so many exceptional companies with innovative thinkers and being able to share a glass of champagne and talk outside your specific shop was absolutely invigorating. Supreme can only hope to be a finalist again and participate in this fantastic event.
