AFS Receives BBB’s 2013 Torch Award

On Friday, November 22, 2013, the Better Business Bureau announced their 2013 Torch Awards winners. The annual event is held in Huntsville where local businesses are recognized for their outstanding ethical relationships with customers, employees and vendors. Among this year’s recipients were AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists (AFS).

AFS has been named a finalist in the past but 2013 marks the first time the foundation repair and basement waterproofing company was a winner. The recognition is not something that owner Ben Bayless takes for granted. “On behalf of AFS and all its employees, we are honored, privileged, and humbled to have received this award,” he says.

The Better Business Bureau recognized AFS for “their three-step approach to insuring that they provide their potential customers with transparency, an accurate price and a pledge that if they aren’t the best company for the job needed, they’ll refer the customer to another business in their industry. They also view their customers as family and say that once a job is complete, their relationship is just starting.”

The 16th Annual Torch Awards celebration was held at the Von Braun Center in Hunstville, which also recognized five Alabama “Students of Integrity” and the presentation of Torch Scholarships. The business ethics award recipients were:

  • LEAN Frog Business Solutions, Inc. in the Small Business Category (1 to 25 employees)
  • AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists in the Mid-Size Company Category (26-99 employees)
  • BP Amoco Chemical Company – Decatur Site in the Large Business Category (100+ employees)
  • Modern Technology Solutions, Inc. (MTSI) in the Government Contractor Category
  • National Children’s Advocacy Center in the Non-Profit Category
