Companies in the News: Davey employees help with Hurricane Irma clean-up; Husqvarna expands customer satisfaction guarantee program

September 13, 2017 -  By

More than a thousand employees from The Davey Tree Expert Co. are helping with recovery from Hurricane Irma by identifying tree hazards and removing them to help power companies to restore electricity quickly.

Crews traveled to their locations last week so they could be ready to respond quickly after the storm subsided. While waiting for the storm to hit, crews reviewed safety procedures, prepared equipment and rode out the storm.

“We cannot fully express how proud we are of these employees who chose to help with storm recovery,” said Pat Covey, president and CEO. “We are grateful, our clients are grateful, and the public is grateful for their service. They will be working hard under difficult circumstances for many days, and, above all, our hope is that they come home safely.”

In other Davey news, the company ranked as the 13th largest employee-owned company in the U.S., according to a report from the National Center for Employee Ownership (NCEO).

The NCEO’s 2017 Employee Ownership 100 list includes the nation’s largest companies that are at least 50 percent owned by an employee stock ownership plan or other broad-based employee ownership plan. Davey has been an employee-owned company for 38 years after employees purchased the company from the John Davey family.

“The entrepreneurial attitude that accompanies employee ownership is a driving factor in Davey’s success,” said Covey. “Fostering and encouraging that employee-ownership culture is integral to the Davey Company’s continued growth and strong performance.”

Husqvarna’s Crown Commitment Customer Satisfaction Guarantee now applies to all Automowers. Crown Commitment is a 60-day money-back guarantee on Husqvarna Automower models purchased from a servicing dealer. Customers who are unsatisfied with their purchase of any Husqvarna Automower may return their product to a dealer within the first 60 days after their initial purchase for a full refund.

Husqvarna models eligible for this program include Husqvarna’s 315, 430X and 450X. Products that have been resold, purchased online, purchased through unauthorized dealers or damaged due to improper use will not qualify for Crown Commitment.
