Diane Brien, Maltby Container & Recycling
“The refund that our small company receives on an annual basis more than pays for the cost of our membership. And we are able to take advantage of other great benefits as well!”
Shannon Dodge, Superior Slabjacking
“As a new business owner, it seemed like my only choices for safety materials and guidance were to look online or to pay thousands to a consultant. Now, I have access to a team of safety professionals included with GRIP.”
