AMERICUS — J&M Tank Lines won first place in the Tank Division category for five to 10 million miles traveled in Georgia for 2015.   J&M also won Grand Champion in the unlimited category for all miles traveled nationally.  The awards were presented on May 7 at the Annual Awards Banquet at Lake Lanier Island in Buford. The awards were sponsored by the GMTA and Great West Casualty Co.
“These awards are a tribute to not only our drivers but also to our entire staff. Safety is not a  department at J&M; it is a culture,” said Randy Watson, J&M’s vice president of safety.
J&M is a dry bulk tank operation of 380 power units in the Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, and Northeast. J&M’s emphasis on safety starts at the top with Harold Sumerfor, Jr. and Peter Sumerford.
“We invest a lot of time, effort, and money making sure we do things the right way,” Watson said. “And we continue to always look for ways to be safer.”
