Rocky Mount

North Carolina motor shop finalist for Torch Award

The Rocky Mountains might hold the honor of heights in the country. But it’s a North Carolina motor shop with that namesake that’s got a chance at another prestigious honor this year.

Rocky Mount Electric Motor recently was selected as a finalist for a Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics in the medium business category by the Better Business Bureau serving Eastern North Carolina.

The Torch Awards for Marketplace Ethics honors companies based on character and business practices, aimed at meeting high standards of ethics. Primary factors include employee trust, customer reliability, and community involvement. The award “embodies BBB’s mission of advancing marketplace trust” per the BBB website.

“It is an honor to be considered for this award. We consider ethical standards simply the way to do business, but it is nice to be recognized for those efforts,” Bill Henkel, owner of Rocky Mount, told EA in an email.

Rocky Mount Electric Motor will be honored as a BBB Torch Award finalist on May 18 at the BBB Torch Awards Ceremony at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary.
