The Motz Corporation is the Pinnacle of Private Business
The Motz Corporation is proud to be named the winner of the 19th Annual 2018 Goering Center Family & Private Business Award.
The Motz Corporation is now the reigning recipient of the 2018 Goering Center Family & Private Business Award for Private Businesses with 76-plus employees. This annual honor is bestowed upon only one company each year, and exemplifies what private business is and should be. Founded in 1977 and serving the high-performance natural and synthetic turf markets, The Motz Corporation is one of the most recognized and highly respected turf system specialists in the world. Celebrating more than 40 years in the industry, this employee owned company proudly stands behind their products and services to ensure long-lasting, prosperous relationships with their valued customer base. The Motz Corporation is the parent company to The Motz Group and USGreentech.
Joe Motz, Founder and CEO, explains, “For the last five years, we’ve been working towards a meaningful culture. As a result of our efforts, we have moved to an employee owned model. Now we have established an organization that can continually develop a legacy that’s built on a strong foundation, that I as the founder was lucky enough to start.”
Motz continues, “What’s been most rewarding is going from feeling like I really knew how to grow great grass, to developing the knowledge to grow great people. It’s an honor to receive this recognition from the Goering Center and we are deeply appreciative to being named the Winner of this prestigious award.”
This annual recognition program, in its nineteenth year, honors Cincinnati regional businesses that exemplify the best in family and private business practices. Each year over 500 businesses apply for these awards. The Motz Corporation was evaluated by an independent panel of judges who reviewed applications as they relate to their positive impact on the community.
After first being named one of 75 Semi-Finalists, The Motz Corporation was then selected as the Winner for Private Businesses with 76-plus employees.
The Motz Corporation is one of an estimated 4,500 family and private businesses that operate in the Cincinnati region. Membership in the Goering Center is not a prerequisite for the awards or for nominations.
