Prime Inc., a leading international refrigerated, flatbed and liquid bulk truckload carrier headquartered in Springfield, Missouri, recently saluted America, her best drivers, and Prime Associates at its annual holiday party held November 23 at the John Q. Hammons Convention Center in Springfield.
More than 1,400 driving and non-driving associates attended the event held in their honor. Festivities included a reception, motivational speeches, dinner, live entertainment by the Domino Kings and Memphis All-Stars, dancing, and karaoke. An inspirational video entitled “America’s In Her Prime” was the highlight of the evening. Footage included the September 11 tragedy and Prime drivers across the nation.
Prime also honored members of its Millionaire program for having achieved in excess of one million miles with the company and introduced the winners of its 2001 Recruiting Contest. Jeff and Jean Bender, of Inverness, Florida, were presented the keys to a 2002 Freightliner show truck to use for one year for having recruited 30 Prime drivers.
Prime’s annual holiday party is one of many ways the company honors its associates for their hard work and dedication throughout the year.
