P.C. McKenzie Company Celebrates 75 Years
P. C. McKenzie Company celebrates 75 years of service; an accomplishment that is most unlikely for a small business. In fact, the NY Times reports that “Small businesses fail all the time. Gene Marks, author of The Small Business Desk Reference, says the average lifespan is about eight and half years.” This past year has been especially brutal for small businesses due to the pandemic with predictions that one in three will not survive.
It has been a difficult period, perhaps the worst in our lifetime, but we continue to grow. The world is changing around us and as a business we continue to evolve. The next 25 years will be most interesting and we look forward to the challenges we will face.
We want to acknowledge and thank the previous generations that took us from 1946 to today. Their guidance, commitment and ethics are the foundation of our business.
All of us at P. C. McKenzie Company are grateful for our customers, our suppliers, the excellent companies we represent and most importantly, each member of our team. Thank you!
