“These awards are a tribute to not only our drivers but also to our entire staff. Safety is not a department at J&M, it is a culture,” said Randy Watson, J&M’s Vice President of Safety.

J&M’s emphasis on safety starts at the top with Harold Sumerford Jr. and Peter Sumerford. “We invest a lot of time, effort and money making sure we do things the right way,” Watson said. “And we continue to always look for ways to be safer.”
