Waukesha, WI, June 09, 2012 --(PR.com)-- DUECO, Inc. has been named “Business of the Year” by the Waukesha County Business Alliance and the Milwaukee BizTimes Magazine. DUECO, a third generation privately held business founded in 1955, is the largest privately owned provider of Terex Hi-Ranger bucket trucks and Terex Telelect digger derricks in the country. Earlier, the company had been named a Top 10 finalist and the announcement was made June 6 that the company won the top award, representing excellence in business management, corporate growth, employee and customer relations and a commitment to local communities.
Suzanne Kelley, President of the Waukesha County Business Alliance, commented, “The Top 10 winners embody a number of exceptional qualities, including a keen focus on customer satisfaction, product quality, innovation, and community engagement. One of the features that make these companies stand out is a shared commitment to talent development and ensuring a strong future workforce. All are devoting significant time, talent and treasure not only to developing their current employees, but also to implementing strategies to build a pipeline of skilled workers for the future.”
An article in the June 11 Milwaukee BizTimes Magazine noted, “DUECO’s success is due in part to their commitment to building long-lasting partnerships with clients. In addition to providing customers with their best products, the company lives by their mission statement: ‘Lifting your expectations. Building your trust’.” The article went on to note, “DUECO representatives adhere to the ‘sunset rule’, (calling customers back before day’s end) and connecting customers to ‘real people’, for questions rather than relying on frustrating automated voice systems.”
Judie Taylor, President of DUECO, Inc., commented, “Our team, all 350 DUECO and UELC team members… have a burning desire to take care of our customers… to do what is right, to provide solutions, to be innovative and creative with ways that we can continuously improve.
