WATERS Ranked in Top 100 Private Businesses in Mississippi
November 22, 2011
WATERS Truck and Tractor, a local International® truck dealership knows the secret to keeping customer’s loyalty – building strong relationships that help drive customers’ profitability.
WATERS was recently ranked 51st in the “Top 100 Private Businesses in Mississippi” by Mississippi Business Journal. This list has been produced annually since 1989 and remains the only definitive ranking of the 100 most successful privately held businesses in the Magnolia State. MBJ utilizes numerous resources to help wade through the thousands of privately held companies. When Mike Waters was asked for the secret to his success he replied, “My father was a good coach. He taught us we had to be committed to the customers from the very beginning and that we had to treat them in a fashion we wanted to be treated ourselves. We’ll go the extra mile to get the customer back on the road and back in service, and we have our staff oriented in that same way. We don’t expect to just sell something one time and forget about it – we’re committed through the life of that vehicle.”
WATERS Truck and Tractor, their sister company WATERS International Trucks and WATER Transportation Services currently employ 585 employees across the state. This 73 year old family business is ran by the 3rd generation of Waters men, M.L., David and Mike and has now welcomed the 4th generation with Josh, Vaughan and Michael at the wheel.
