SACRAMENTO–Today Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Santa Rosa) honored Quality Body Works in Eureka as Assembly District 2’s Small Business of the Year at an Awards Luncheon in Sacramento. Owner, Dave Creech, and his son Ross, received an Assembly Resolution recognizing their business and contributions to their community.
“It is well known that, for more than 30 years, Quality Body Works has maintained their reputation for treating customers like family,” said Wood. “Three generations, beginning in 1978 with founder Jim Creech, to Dave and Skip Creech, and now Ross Creech, they have followed the Golden Rule by ‘saying what you do and doing what you say’ as part of their business model.”
Quality Body Works has a 30-member team, several of whom have been with them for more than 20 years with three recently celebrating their 26th, 28th and 30th anniversary respectively. To support their community, the company has been actively involved in Rotary and Elks, long supported the Boys & Girls Club, sponsored countless youth sports teams and awards a Quality in Youth Award to a dynamic young person making a difference in the community. They also value their employees with an emphasis on staff development and sponsor employees who wish to join local civic clubs. They work with the College of the Redwoods in an apprenticeship training program and the WEX second-chance program.
“Their grandfather said it can never be about making money, it has to be about the lives they touch and the trust they earn in the process,” said Wood. “That’s why we wanted to recognize them today.”
