The Davey Tree Expert Company was mentioned in this Forbes article about how employee-owned companies are ranked among the top companies to work for in the U.S.

Perhaps your class ring came from Herff Jones, you wear clothes made with W. L. Gore & Associates’ waterproof Gore-Tex fabric, admire Herman Miller furniture and enjoy books from W.W. Norton & Company. 

Or, maybe you’ve bought culinary supplies from King Arthur Flour, shopped at Publix Super Markets, Hy-Vee or WinCo Foods, and gotten retirement planning advice from Robert W. Baird & Co. or relished a Clif Bar snack and a pair of Dansko shoes from The Walking Company. 

They’re all stellar companies in their field. Plus, they’re all – or have been – employee-owned. W.L. Gore & Associates, which made Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work for in America roster for 33 straight years, has been partially employee-owned since 1969 and Herman Miller since 1977. Publix, an ESOP since 2004, is the nation’s largest ESOP with 200,000 employees, and Amsted Industries, a global maker of industrial components with 16,000 employees, has been 100% ESOP-owned since 1998.
