Hutt earns Hudsonville Chamber’s Business Excellence Award
Hutt Trucking Co., Inc. was recognized by the Hudsonville Area Chamber of Commerce with the 2019 Business Excellence Award. Hudsonville School District Superintendent Doug VanderJagt announced the award winners during the awards banquet, held at the Pinnacle Center on June 20.
The award recognizes outstanding businesses that excelled in their industry while contributing to the Hudsonville community. It also acknowledges businesses that demonstrate exceptional growth through the creation of jobs, revenue growth, innovative products and services, exemplary customer service, a focus on improving employee quality of life and volunteerism in the Hudsonville community.
“Since our start in 1985, we’ve always cared about engaging the community,” said Jim Hutt, owner and CEO of Hutt Trucking. “We are grateful to be recognized with the Business Excellence Award for our engagement in Hudsonville and will continue our commitment to community.”
Hutt started in Holland in 1985 and experienced continued growth throughout the years. In 2016, Hutt purchased the Hudsonville facility and soon added 81,000-square-feet of deep-freeze food capacity. The move added 30 additional jobs to the area.
With the recognition, Hutt joins a diverse group of Business Excellence Award winners including Jet’s Pizza, West Michigan Community Bank, Farmers Co-Op, Royal Technologies and Gemmens.
Hutt is the West Michigan leader in transportation, logistics and warehousing of dry, refrigerated, frozen and deep-frozen products. Originally founded in 1985, Hutt started as a small trucking business hauling refrigerated and frozen food products across the east coast. Today, Hutt offers end-to-end supply chain solutions while consistently delivering value to customers, employees and the local community. www.hutt.com
