Chamber Honors 2005 Small Business Of The Year

A family-owned company in Lufkin is the chamber's 2005 Small Business of the Year.

Moore Building Associates has about 45 employees. The five-year-old company serves clients all over Texas, from as far north as Texarkana to as far south as Orange.

Moore Building Associates beat four other Lufkin finalists for this honor.

The chamber presented the award at Friday's First Friday luncheon.

Ben Moore said, "The large base of our business over the past three to four years, has been in multi-family housing. We've also built several projects for Holiday Inn Express and we've had several successful projects with Ellen Trout Zoo."

Mayor Louis Bronaugh also proclaimed May 31st through June 4th Small Business Week in the city of Lufkin.
