"The major accomplishments achieved by Newberry...are great reflection of Chris, James & Team...." - ABA Judge
WEST MEMPHIS, AR, May 20, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Today the American Business Awards® announced that oil and petroleum storage supplier Newberry Tanks LLC is the winner of a slew of accolades including:
• GOLD AWARD for Company of the Year – Metals and Mining
• GOLD AWARD Achievement in Management – Manufacturing
• GOLD AWARD New Product & Service – Business Technology – Manufacturing – Tank Calculator
• BRONZE AWARD New Product Industrial Products & Services – SlimLine Tank
Newberry received the highest honors for "Achievement in Management" due to their bold 'New Thinking' philosophy and practices in 2019. Defying near-century long industry norms, Newberry started offering steel tanks on-demand, turnkey solutions, expedited shipping as well as a new product to the under-served Lube Market. The combination resulted in growth that was 52% higher than industry average.
Equally impressive was Newberry's gold medal for their industry-first "Tank Calculator," which won for "New Product in Business Technology Manufacturing." The free application assists oil refuelers with measuring available capacity inside a tank when refueling. The result is an 87% recurring percentage reduction in time spent on each delivery, as well as prevention of environmentally damaging accidental spills.
Newberry's "SlimLine" steel tank took the bronze for "New Industrial Product." Designed with input from Lube industry giants, the innovative design resulted in orders from five household name brands within the first month of production and resulted in a 47% increase in sales from this vertical market.
The Gold for "Company of the Year in Metals and Mining" was the crowning achievement that encompassed all of Newberry's intentional innovation efforts in 2019 and assured that the company is well and truly the "Think Tank of Oil and Petroleum Storage" for years to come.
Newberry Tanks CEO Chris Long commented, "We'd like to thank the judges at the American Business Awards, our clients, and most of all, our team here at Newberry. These awards represent the tremendous craftsmanship, dedication, and skill that you bring to work every day, even in the face of the most trying circumstances. We couldn't have done it without you, you are truly "Strong as Steel." We look forward to continuing 'New Thinking' in 2020, as we seek new ways to overcome the challenges our country faces."
