Search tip: the next time you’re browsing for local businesses, try adding “Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOP)” to the query — you may be surprised by the upside.

MB HAYNES is proudly an ESOP company, meaning all employees, from tradesmen to secretaries to supervisors, are 100% shareholders. As a result, employees feel invested, which is known to lead to:

  • Better + more reliable service
  • Employee expertise and dedication
  • A smoother experience for customers
  • Stronger (and lasting) customer relationships
