French Gerleman Named a St. Louis Business Journal Family Business Award Winner

family-business-awaeThe St. Louis Business Journal just released their list of Family Business Award winners, and we are excited to announce that French Gerleman has made the list. This is the first year for the award, and we are thrilled to be honored alongside six other local, family owned companies.

For nearly 100 years, we have kept the company in the French family and maintained our strong mission statement. We have six family members currently involved with the business. It’s important to us, as a company, to not only grow as a whole, but for individuals within the company to grow and be successful. We are particularly proud of our many long term employees – we have many 20+ year employees among our ranks! Our employees become like family and we are fortunate to have them on our team.

Founded in 1923, French Gerleman was built on a strong foundation of guiding principles. Among those is a continued emphasis on forging enduring relationships with those who have had an interest in our success.

We are grounded in the past and poised for the future. Our success is dependent on all us working together to stay strong and to continue to grow as a company. We are proud of our history and that strong background helps us work towards the future.

Stories for each of the companies honored by the St. Louis Business Journal appeared in the October 21 issue, which can be found HERE.

Thank you to the St. Louis Business Journal for this honor.  It means a lot to us to be recognized for our family heritage and history, it is what makes French Gerleman what it is today.
