LEAWOOD, Kan., May 15, 2015 – Murphy-Hoffman Company (MHC) received the 2015 Champion of Business award by the Kansas City Business Journal among 14 other companies at a ceremony in Overland Park.
This is the second time MHC has been nominated and earned the prestigious designation. This year, the 15 honorees were selected for industry leadership, innovation and a commitment to community involvement. Independent judges selected honorees from a pool of 57 nominees. Criteria included being headquartered in the Kansas City metro area, having been in business at least three years and earning a gross revenue of at least $3 million.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by the Kansas City Business Journal and to be included in this distinguished list of Kansas City companies,” MHC CEO Tim Murphy said. “Our success is a direct result of the dedication and hard work of our employees here in Kansas City and our 95 locations throughout the U.S. that service both customers and communities.”
