KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY

E.V. BANTA COMPANY IS A FAMILY NAME. IT’S BEEN AN EXAMPLE OF STRENGTH, CONSISTENT HARD WORK, KINDNESS, SELFLESSNESS AND PRIDE SINCE IT WAS INCORPORATED IN 1957. MY GRANDFATHER BEGAN THIS COMPANY TO PROVIDE GAS TANK INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL SERVICES FOR GAS STATIONS STRETCHING ACROSS THE TRI-STATE AREA. THE JOB REQUIRED A 4 AM WAKE UP CALL, A DAY BAKING UNDER THE SUN POURING CONCRETE AND OPERATING BACKHOES. IT’S NO SECRET MY SISTER AND I WOULD NOT BE PARTAKING IN GAS TANK INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL AS A CAREER - SO A FEW YEARS AGO I MADE THE DECISION (AFTER SPEAKING WITH MY DAD, OF COURSE) TO CONTINUE THE FAMILY NAME, JUST STEER IT MORE TOWARDS MY CAREER GOALS AND PASSIONS. HE HAPPILY OBLIGED KNOWING THE NAME WOULD LIVE ON. THE TRUTH IS, THE BUSINESS IS NOT THE PHYSICAL WORK THAT E.V. BANTA COMPANY OFFERS, IT’S WHAT THE COMPANY REPRESENTS. THAT IS THE FAMILY BUSINESS. IT’S A SERIES OF WORDS WITH POWERFUL DEFINITION I'VE COME TO INHERIT. THE BRILLIANT MINDS BEHIND THE COMPANY HAVE TAUGHT ME TO WORK HARD FOR WHATEVER I WANT, TO BE GRATEFUL FOR WHAT I HAVE AND TO ALWAYS BE WILLING TO LEND A HAND TO THOSE IN NEED OF IT. I WAS RAISED AROUND THOSE PRINCIPLES. I WILL CONTINUE TO LIVE BY THEM IN THE FUTURE.
