Better Business Bureau Torch Awards for Ethics Winner

(Rochester, MN, May 24th) – American Waterworks is proud to announce that they were selected as a winner for 2021’s Better Business Bureau Torch Award of Ethics! The company has a team of basement waterproofing, foundation repair, crawl space repair, concrete lifting and repair, and radon mitigation experts. They have been serving Minnesota, North Dakota, western Wisconsin, and northeast Iowa for 33 years and have been BBB accredited since 2000.  

The BBB’s mission is to be the leader in improving marketplace trust. They celebrate and recognize local companies that demonstrate integrity and ethical commitment in all that they do. To get this award, the company must be in business for at least three years, have met their financial obligations, have not won this award in the past, and must have a “B” rating or better from the BBB. The judging process consists of entries that are evaluated by a board of judges. The judges focus on principles of excellence, integrity, ethics, teamwork, trust, respect, community involvement, and supporting documentation. Owner, Steve Breland, said his team feels honored to receive this award and is proof that the company is credible and reliable. “We would not have been able to win this award without our wonderful team who represents our company so well,” said Breland.

“This award is special because it’s bigger than a product, service, or brand. It’s about displaying an ongoing commitment to ethical practices,” said BBB Vice President of Community Relations, Lisa Jemtrud. “BBB is proud to give this award as our highest honor.” American Waterworks employees are grateful to be able to take care of their customers and redefine their industry of what it means to be a contractor.
