At Markey's, Our
Employees are Our Owners
A recent milestone in our 55-year history was to put an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) into place on
December 31, 2012. Chuck Markey, Jr.,
took this step to ensure stability of the company for the future. He wanted Markey’s to be around for another 50 years and beyond, continuing to
do business the Markey’s way – providing high-quality equipment, with a fierce
dedication to exemplary customer service. Another reason Chuck chose to institute the ESOP was for employees to
create wealth in a tangible way. By
having a financial stake in the company’s success, employees are more motivated
to be budget-conscious and do what is best for the company. It is a way to
reward employees for their hard work and dedication, both those that have been
with the company for over 20 years and those joining us in the future.
