Ideal Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electrical is proud to announce that on December 3rd, 2013 the company was named a BBB Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics finalist in the 25-99 employee category.
The BBB Torch Awards are the way San Diego celebrates ethical business practices in our marketplace. Businesses selected as Torch Award finalists have demonstrated a strong commitment to integrity, customer service and community involvement. When consumers see the Torch Award finalist logo on our company’s website, marketing materials and social media platforms, it further enforces that we are among the top ethical businesses in San Diego and possesses a strong moral fiber.
“Ideal is more than just a company that installs and repairs your plumbing, heating, air or electrical,” said Don Teemsma, President/CEO of Ideal. “We believe in service excellence, demonstrated in high moral standards and business ethics since the company’s inception.”
Ideal works closely with the community to make a positive social impact. Ideal’s philanthropic efforts are not aimed at one single project, but take an all-embracing approach. Ideal demonstrates the pay it forward spirit primarily through pro-bono work, community giving and school support across San Diego County.
“Doing good works builds team spirit within our organization,” said Teemsma. “These experiences create a culture of service at Ideal and help employees look outward and focus on other’s needs instead of their own.”
For the past 16 years, the San Diego Better Business Bureau has hosted the Torch Awards for Marketplace Ethics to promote not only the importance of ethical business practices, but the willingness and efforts of outstanding businesses to ensure that our marketplace remains fair and honorable. The Torch Awards is open to all businesses and organizations that service San Diego and/or Imperial County markets. Companies must be in good standing with the BBB; however BBB Accreditation is not a requirement for entry or consideration. Each year, one winner and up to two finalists in eight categories, varying by the size of the company and one non-profit category, are presented with their own torch award.
“The Torch Awards allow the BBB to honor businesses that epitomize ethics and integrity,” said San Diego BBB President/CEO Sheryl Reichert. “These are the businesses that are doing the right thing for consumers in a time when so many others struggle to be accountable.”
