J&M Tank Lines, Inc. won first place in the Tank Division category for 5-10 million miles traveled in Georgia for 2015. 

J&M also won Grand Champion in the unlimited category for all miles traveled nationally.  The awards were presented at the Annual Awards Banquet at Lake Lanier Island in Buford, GA on May 7th.  The awards were sponsored by the GMTA and Great West Casualty Company.

“These awards are a tribute to not only our drivers but also to our entire staff.  Safety is not a department at J&M, it is a culture,” said Randy Watson, J&M’s Vice President of Safety.  

J&M is a dry bulk tank operation of 380 power units in the Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, and Northeast.  J&M’s emphasis on safety starts at the top with Harold Sumerford, Jr. and Peter Sumerford.  “We invest a lot of time, effort, and money making sure we do things the right way,” Watson said.  “And we continue to always look for ways to be safer.”
