Firm Recognized as a Top U.S. Job Creator
Sterling, VA—December 7, 2012—JK Moving Services, a full-service moving company founded in 1981 and specializing in residential, commercial, and international moving and storage, today announced it was a recipient of the inaugural Inc. Magazine Hire Power Awards. The Hire Power Awards honor private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past three years.
JK grew its employee base by 72% from 2008 to 2011, tying for 83rd place on the Top 100 list. JK was the only moving company to qualify for the Top 100 list, ranking #4 in its industry category -- Logistics and Transportation companies -- and #7 among all companies ranked in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
“It’s a privilege to receive the Hire Power Award from Inc.,” said Charles Kuhn, Founder, President and CEO, JK Moving Services. “We have experienced 30 years of double-digit revenue growth, through good economic times and bad, because our employees are dedicated to providing the highest level of customer service. Our customers continue to reward us with repeat and referral business. Our singular focus is to earn their trust each and every day.”
“The top 100 companies on the list have created 73,032 American jobs in the three-year period from 2008 to 2011 – an amazing feat, given that much of that job growth came during the heart of the recession,” explains Inc. editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. “And it isn’t just the big guys that are adding jobs. Companies with less than $50 million in annual revenue make up nearly one-third of the Hire Power list.”
JK is the third largest independent carrier in North America and was named the American Moving & Storage Association’s 2011 Independent Mover of the Year, a 2011 Angie’s List Super Service Award winner, and a Greater Washington Commercial Association of REALTORS® (GWCAR) 2011 Best in the Industry award winner for Moving Company of the Year.
