Valencia, CA, November 15, 2012 – AMS Fulfillment is very pleased to announce that the California Association of Enterprise Zones (CAEZ) selected AMS as the recipient of its “Business of the Year” award. The award was presented to AMS CEO, Ken Wiseman, at the CAEZ Conference Keynote Luncheon, hosted by the City of Santa Clarita, on November 15 at the Hyatt Regency Valencia.
AMS was selected from among a number of nominees due to its growth and achievements over the years and its commitment to hiring from within the community. AMS has partnered with several different programs to hire at-risk youth and developmentally disabled adults, and has also embraced the federal GAIN program and recruited from within aging workforce and unemployed veterans groups. Recently AMS achieved Modified Foreign-Trade-Zone status under the auspices of the Palmdale Foreign Trade Zone, which will lead to continued growth and increased hiring.
In his remarks at the CAEZ luncheon, Wiseman stated: “We admire the mission of this group to encourage businesses to seek out a quality and diverse workforce. I know that for many companies, the incentives that are offered through this program help encourage them to make the first venture into expanding their hiring considerations. At AMS Fulfillment, we experience the true wealth and satisfaction that comes from our shared mission each time we walk through our operations and sense the value of embracing our community.”
AMS Fulfillment provides warehousing, assembly and complex pick-pack-ship fulfillment services to both retail chains and direct to consumer. They have a client base across a variety of industries, managing tens of thousands of retail items, product orders and shipments for over 40 active retail clients. They manage inventory, order fulfillment and logistics for a number of brand-companies.
The CAEZ Keynote Luncheon, featuring keynote speaker Bruce Jenner, took place during a two-day CAEZ conference attended by Enterprise Zone managers from across California. The attendees had an opportunity to hear from state leaders, attend workshops on best practices, learn tactics to maximize job creation and business retention from peers, and discuss how to improve the Enterprise Zone program, which remains Santa Clarita’s largest business attraction and retention program.
