TAMKO Building Products was recently voted “Best Industrial Employer” for the second year in a row, and for the first time ever, “Best Employer” overall, in The Joplin Globe newspaper’s “2019 Readers’ Choice Favorites of the Four States” contest.

The “Four States” refers to a region where southwest Missouri, southeast Kansas, northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas connect. It’s also the area where TAMKO was founded in 1944.

The building products manufacturer said the honors are particularly special this year as the company celebrates its 75th anniversary. TAMKO has grown from just one location with 35 employees to multiple locations nationwide with more than 600 employees in the four states area alone.

The Joplin, Mo.-based company notes that its core values of honesty, integrity and compliance have attracted top talent and long-term employees with strong character, including those how have been with the company for 20 or more years.

About 16% of current employees have been with the company more than 25 years, according to TAMKO

TAMKO said it believes in community stewardship, giving more than $3.2 million of charitable donations in recent years. Also, TAMKO employees reported volunteering more than 26,000 hours in the last year.

“We’re immensely proud of this recognition, which is a testament to our strong company culture,” said TAMKO President and CEO David Humphreys. “We are grateful for this community endorsement and the support of everyone who helped make this possible.”
