In selecting Tencarva Machinery Company, the publication pointed out, “As an employee-owned company founded in 1978, Tencarva posted an approximate 11% increase in sales over last year, due in part to the fact that it purchased the assets of GPM, a pump distributor in Georgia, in September of 2011. Last year, the company remarked that ‘2010 was a good recovery year for Tencarva.’ 2011 seems to have been an even better one.”
Rod Lee, Tencarva president, says, “We appreciate the recognition and attribute our success to the strong team of employees who comprise Tencarva.”
Tencarva had $175 million in sales in 2011 and 305 employees. For seven straight years, Tencarva has appeared in the “Big 50” listing. Tencarva was the only company in the Triad area of Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point, to be included in the listing and one of two in North Carolina.
