In 2013, Columbus Vegetable Oils made a business decision the company’s general manager, John Healy, would classify as one marked by peace of mind and reliability: signing a full-service leasing contract with Aim.
“It’s a win-win,” Healy said. “They give me so much ease-of-mind that I know they’re watching my trucks, and I don’t have to worry about it.”
Healy goes on to mention the added value like scheduled maintenance, shop proximity and the overall dependability, like that of his salesmen, Aim Senior Account Executive John Matthews.
What underpins the years-long partnership between Aim and Michael Lewis Company (MLCo)? One word: Family.
Both companies are privately held and family owned, which, as Adam Kunz, manager at MLCo, suggests, forms a unique bond, one built on trust. “That family connection is very important to us,” he said, “something we hang our hats on.”
Ten years of business partnership is a message unto itself. It’s one that demonstrates value, satisfaction and an ongoing mutually beneficial relationship. On that, Aim Transportation Solutions recently hit a landmark 10-year anniversary with one of many of its long-term customers: Hensley Beverage Company. Starting in 2010, Hensley has been benefitting from Aim’s ProShop service, a unique offering in which Aim assumes the responsibilities (and liability) of a business’s on-site fleet maintenance shop, and, in turn, the customer receives all the benefits of Aim’s decades of maintenance experience as well as its vast cost-cutting resource network.
In order to uphold Aim’s unmatched brand of fleet maintenance services, communication and a unified mission are critical. So, bi-yearly, Aim holds a maintenance directors meeting to review goals, changes, new programs and whatever is necessary to keep the wrenches turning efficiently for Aim’s customers scattering the nation.
The Better Business Bureau of Trumbull, Mahoning and Columbiana Counties, in Ohio, awarded Aim Transportation Solutions with the Torch Award for Marketplace Trust. These annual awards celebrate companies that have earned marketplace trust by operating with honesty and integrity, two core values on which Aim has proudly built its brand.
Aim Transportation Solutions is thrilled to announce the promotion of Carli Kuntze to Vice President of Human Resource. Coming on board in 2008, Kuntze entered Aim as an HR Assistant. Over the course of her 14-year career, she has vaulted through ranks, first moving into a supervisory position as the Human Resource Manager and then moving up to the Director of Human Resource and now transitioning to a vice president role.
To reinforce our unwavering devotion to safety, Aim, on May 16, kicked off its third-annual Safety Week. This five-day initiative engages employees in daily conversations designed to remind them that Aim’s priority, above all else, is keeping its employees, valued customers and everyone it comes in contact with safe.
