Torklift International in Kent is showing off on the cover of the current issue of Seattle Business magazine as a Best Place to Work honoree.

The family-owned firm was selected for the award based on leadership values and commitment to providing excellent benefit packages to its employees.

“We were a one-man operation in Kent 37 years ago,” Torklift general manager Jay Taylor said. “We have grown into a worldwide company serving markets from Russia to Australia to the US and Canada.”

The company is dedicated, he said, to building dreams for the people who work here, noting it provides mandatory leadership and teamwork training for all new hires.

Torklift International was featured in the Business Examiner’s “South Sound Business Report” television show earlier this year. That episode can be seen here.
