For the third time in five years Midwest Fire Equipment & Repair Company (Midwest Fire) was named one of fifty winners in Prairie Business Magazine’s (Prairie Business) “50 Best Places to Work 2019” contest. Prairie Business boasts over 1,400 employee-written nominations for this year’s competition.
“It’s a huge honor to be featured among so many successful businesses in our state, and even more so to be chosen a third time,” said Midwest Fire’s CEO Sarah Atchison. “I attribute our success to our team of experienced professionals and the business culture we have created together. Everything we do at Midwest Fire—from building the trucks to customer service—flows from a team effort.”
