Massey Services, based in Orlando, Fla., is recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October by using pink-colored fertilizer in its lawn services.
“We are proud to join our partner Howard Fertilizer in promoting breast cancer awareness in such a unique way,” said Tony Massey, president of Massey Services. “Many of us have been personally touched by this disease and support the American Cancer Society fight to find a cure.”
Massey has partnered with supplier, Howard Fertilizer and Chemical Co., for an opportunity to include the color pink in the water soluble and granular fertilizers. The products are dyed pink and leave the chemistry of the fertilizer unaffected and will not impact the color of lawns.
Massey has supported Breast Cancer Awareness initiatives for more than 20 years and continues support by donating, sponsoring and participating in local events. The company plans to continue supporting organizations including Making Strides for Breast Cancer, Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society.
MASSEY WINS AWARDS
In related news, the Orlando News Sentinel recognized Massey as a “Golden 100” company and “Elite 50” – both accolades spotlighting Central Florida’s top privately held companies.
This Golden 100 list is based on gross revenue for the most recent year-end. This year, Massey Services was ranked No. 12 on the list. For the past 10 years, the company has made the Golden 100 and has ranked within the Top 20 companies listed. Orlando Business Journal first-ever Elite 50 list includes the Top 25 companies on the Golden 100 List and the Top 25 companies on its Fast 50 list. The new Elite 50 list was created to honor local, privately held companies who have achieved great success in the past year.
“It’s an honor for our company to be recognized alongside these outstanding private companies in Central Florida,” said Harvey Massey, chairman and CEO of Massey Services. “This accolade is an incredible recognition for all of our Team Members. Our success is due in large part to their hard work, dedication and commitment, which allows our company to continue to grow profitably.”
Massey, a PMP Hall of Famer (Class of 2008), founded the company in 1985. Earlier this year, Massey, chairman and CEO of Massey Services, was listed in Florida Trend’s annual Florida 500 list. This marks Massey’s third time as a recipient since the list began in 2018. He is a 56-year veteran of the pest management industry.
