The first ACI Wild Horse Inmate Program (WHIP) foal has a name! Thanks to all the staff who submitted some really great names. There were 207 entries sent in and after some deep discussion, the committee chose the name Justice sent in by Brian Radecki.
And as a bonus, after the name “Justice” was chosen, the 3 remaining top name choices are going to be given to horses in the program that need names. They are:
Two Horses and a Burro Find New Homes at Joint BML & WHIP Adaption Event
ACI's Wild Horse Inmate Program (WHIP) successfully placed three of its trained animals during an adoption event in Show Low Arizona last weekend. "Two of our horses and a burro found new homes, " reported WHIP Supervisor Randy Helm. "The Bureau of Land Management (BML) also successfully placed 20 horses during the event."
I am pleased to announce that Carlos Esparza, from our sales group has been selected the ACI employee of the month for July, 2013.
Carlos continues to work his territory diligently and continues to have success developing new accounts. He goes beyond the call of duty as witnessed by his efforts to deliver department end of year clothing orders. Dedicated to providing excellent service to his customers, Carlos works closely with the shops to make sure opportunities and orders are handled properly.
Begun in 2002 by a guy with a vision — and not much else — Safety Services Company has grown into one of INC Magazine’s Top 5,000 Companies for the sixth year in a row. “I knew that we could quickly become a major player in the untapped safety training and compliance market, if we could just reach businesses desperate for our services,” explained Devon Dickinson, founder and current board member.
Congratulations to Michael Moreno, John Hawley and Francisco Garcia
In mid March, ACI received an order from the Correctional department worth over $3 million dollars. Department regulations dictated that this order had to be completed by the end of June (our fiscal year). Typically, an order of this size would take 5 or 6 months to complete, especially in conjunction with dozens of other standing and pending orders.
In other words, this huge order presented a significant challenge to our Florence, Perryville and Douglas sewing shops.
