SCV Means Business, the official podcast of the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation. President and CEO Holly Schroeder interviews business leaders in the SCV community in order to highlight the ways that businesses make a difference in the community.
Recently Holly interviewed Ken Wiseman, CEO of AMS Fulfillment. Ken talked about the growth of AMS into a full 3PL servicing the needs of 62 companies, in 580,000 sq. feet of warehouse space with over 300 employees. In this interview Ken and Holly discuss the ‘Amazon effect’ and direct-to-consumer shipping and the expansion of AMS to the East Coast.
Ken goes on to talk about AMS’ innovative workforce development, how AMS is using the power of partnership to meet logistical challenges, and why the company decided to become a Certified B Corporation. He explained the AMS philosophy and mission statement, and how this mission naturally led to becoming a social enterprise (B-Corp), joining the ranks of only 2,300 businesses in the world that are committed to operating ‘For the world’. Ken reveals the long-term benefits of investing in employees in the way that AMS has invested, through training and education.
Holly describes AMS as an example of a great company making a difference in the community. Please enjoy this excellent podcast, interview with Ken Wiseman of AMS Fulfillment.
