As 2018 draws to a close, we’re taking time to look back and reflect on the year that we had as a company.
For us, that means asking some questions – what did we accomplish this year? How was 2018 different than years past? And what will make us even better moving forward into the next year and the years to come?
We had a really big, amazing year at Praters.
Our team travelled over 600,000 miles to more than 55 cities and some of the biggest events in basketball. Our website and social media pages were viewed more than 140,000 times. We worked on more than 4 million square feet of gym floors. 97 million people tuned in to the Final Four games and saw our court.
But there’s really only one number that matters to us.
In 2018, we had 58 employees who made this all happen.
Every single member of the Praters team is essential to making this business successful. From floor technicians to administration staff, this company would be nothing without this incredible team of people. We had our best year yet, and this team is the reason.
We work hard – it’d be impossible to have the final product that we have without immense effort – but we enjoy it. It’s hard to go wrong when you love what you do, and do it with friends.
And so at the end of 2018, we wanted to share with you not only our accomplishments, but a behind-the-scenes look at how our employees make this company what it is.
Happy New Year! We wish you all a joyful 2019.
– John, Debbie, and Mark
