Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose recognizes EE Ward Moving & Storage for its February Ohio Business Spotlight. It’s an honor to be recognized as both a historic Black-Owned Business and as an Ohioan company that’s been in service for over 100 years.
The Ohio Business Spotlight sheds light on how we here at EE Ward Moving & Storage got our start in the relocation industry, and how our founder, John T. Ward started this business from the ground up as what started out as a stop on the Underground Railroad. As Ward continued to aid slaves in reaching their destinations and gaining their freedom, he began to expand and transport furniture, food, and more as the years went on.
140 years later, we’re proud to continually provide Columbus and the surrounding areas incredible and unparalleled customer service, and the most efficient moving processes possible. Passed down through generations, EE Ward Moving & Storage is proud to continue to operate on respect and the strong morals set forth by our founder.
Today, EE Ward Moving & Storage is owned by husband and wife duo Brian and Dominique Brooks, who have worked hard to strengthen the business’ foundation and have led us to win a multitude of awards, including 2018’s North American Van Lines Overall Quality Hauling Agent of the Year and the 2017 Agent of the Year for Service Excellence (American Moving & Storage Association).
The Brooks family is committed to continuing and building upon the legacy of John T. Ward, and proving again and again why EE Ward Moving & Storage is a premier Ohio moving company.
To congratulate EE Ward Moving & Storage for our recognition as a Black-Owned Ohio business that has provided our customers with only the best services possible over the past 140 years, Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose paid us a visit on Tuesday, February 8th, 2022.
We’re honored to have welcomed Secretary LaRose to our business, and thank his office sincerely for the recognition of our continued commitment to giving Ohio our best services consistently.
This Black History Month, we’re proud to be the business highlighted by the Ohio Spotlight. We’ve put in the work over the past 140 years to earn and gain the respect of our competitors and our service areas at large, and have remained determined to be the best company we can be for our clients.
Black History Month is a time to recognize the achievements of amazing Black businesses and innovative Black creators, and we’re honored to be included as we recognize the progress made by our fellow Black entrepreneurs while looking back on the legacy left behind by those who came before us.
During this time, take the time to learn the history of the African American experience in the United States and beyond, and make a concerted effort to support Black-Owned businesses, Black creators and entrepreneurs, and reflect on how you can continue to be a valued ally or what you can do to elevate Black voices. Happy Black History Month!
