TAMKO Honored As Top Employer for Third Year in a Row

TAMKO 2020 Top Employer Awards

During what has been one of the most challenging employment years in decades for many businesses, the four-states community once again voted TAMKO Building Products the Favorite Employer, Best Employer AND Favorite Industrial Employer in two separate area contests.

For three years in a row, TAMKO has been named the Favorite Industrial Employer, while also receiving the top recognition award as Favorite Employer overall for the last two years in the Reader’s Choice Favorites of the Four States annual contest, hosted by regional newspaper, The Joplin Globe. This is also the second year in a row TAMKO was voted Best Employer in the Best of the Four States annual contest, hosted by Zimmer Marketing, a four-states area marketing agency and radio station conglomerate.

Community members from the four-states are invited every year to vote on their favorite businesses in a number of categories including Automotive, Financial, Food, Entertainment & Recreation, Apparel, Medical, Retail, Health & Beauty and Services. The contests include businesses from the four-state area, a region with a population of approximately 400,000, where Southwest Missouri, Southeast Kansas, Northeast Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas connect.

Many employees at TAMKO have called the four-state area home, just like TAMKO does, after it began its business with one location in Joplin, Missouri in 1944. For more than 75 years, TAMKO has employed thousands of dedicated men and women across the country, growing to be one of the largest manufacturers of asphalt shingles in the country, while maintaining the best of its hometown company culture.

Thank you to all the employees and community members who voted to give TAMKO top honors as a respected employer. We would not be who we are or have accomplished what we have without the support of our amazing communities.
