American Building Components is proud to announce that in recognition of his support for the Armed Forces Guard and Reserves, ABC Regional Sales Manager Mark Massengale has received the Patriot Award from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR). The Patriot Award honors individual supervisors for their efforts to support for our country’s Service members and their families. In receiving this award, ABC recognizes and appreciates how essential the Guard and Reserve are to the safety, betterment and strength of our country. As a Patriotic Employer, Massengale—along with other ABC managers—support Service member employees through assistive measures such as flexible work hours, providing leave before and after deployment as well as ensuring they have time to care for their families.
ABC Vice President Kelly Huntsman commented, “We are proud that Mark continually supports Service members like Staff Sargent Mel Shipton, who is a vital part of our Order Entry team in Salt Lake City. Her service to our country enhances the work she does with us on a day-to-day basis sets an example for our teams and enables us to continue to provide exceptional experiences to our customers.”
