Rob Read, Owner Bison Fire Protection
Great People = SuccessAs a modern company with old-fashioned values, Rob believes that there are three things you need in business: People, Process & Tools. Without one the other two don’t matter. “Our critical success factor has been our people. Making sure they feel respected, appreciated and that they are trained to do their jobs properly.” Says Rob. “I work with these people day in and day out, I meet their wives at Christmas parties, their kids at picnics. I don’t want them going home injured in any way shape or form. They are not numbers, they are people. If someone was truly hurt I never want to look someone in the eye and tell them their family member is hurt, or worse.” Rob recognizes that after implementing a safety plan and becoming COR Certified, a lot of doors opened for Bison Fire Protection. “People look at us and think, ok, these guys are professionals. Clients respect our safety standards on the job site and know they can expect quality work.”
