AutomationDirect Earns World Class Culture Award at Atlanta Supply Chain Awards

AutomationDirect was recently honored with the 2020 Atlanta Supply Chain World Class Culture Award. This award honors a company in the Metro Atlanta area that has an empowering culture internally for team members, a leadership approach that engages the entire organization in a forward-thinking way, and a commitment to engaging and giving back to the community and the industry in which they serve.

AutomationDirect was nominated for the award by Fred Tolbert of Demand Solutions, supply chain solutions provider for AutomationDirect, who noted that he has seen the company’s culture in action throughout the 20 years he has done business with them.

Page Siplon, CEO of TeamOne Logistics, presented the award to AutomationDirect and said that he has “personally seen the community and culture that your company demonstrates.” He also noted the company’s long-standing involvement with FIRST Robotics having spent more than 10 years as a judge for the student robotics competitions. “I am especially pleased to be presenting this award to AutomationDirect on behalf of the committee and award judges as I have observed first-hand how the company consistently gives back to the community and our industry.”

AutomationDirect Team Captain Tim Carroll accepted the award. “It’s an honor for our team and the whole company to have our culture recognized in this way. Day in and day out, our team members work hard to serve our customers, the community, and each other. This award is an amazing validation to all our team members for their efforts.”
