ARS Celebrates 10 Years“Ten years ago, we saw tremendous opportunity in American Residential Services. Since October 2006, we have more than doubled revenue, made over 30 acquisitions, and grown our employee base over 70%. No other company in the industry has achieved this level of success in this amount of time. These results are a testament to our best-in-class front line employees and the strength of our General Managers,” said Dave Slott, Chief Operating Officer at ARS.
Every year, ARS sets aside a period of time to celebrate our corporate community through activities and events at each of the service centers throughout the country. We call it “We are ARS Week,” and this year, ARS celebrated 10 years of serving customers, so the festivities were better than ever.
During this time, the letters ARS have a different meaning, and the company sets aside a week to accomplish the following:
- Acknowledge our Employees
- Refresh our Surroundings
- Serve our Community
ARS assets like vehicles, equipment, and uniforms are valued and protected, as these are the resources that allow employees to do their jobs. Branches organized fun activities or contests to encourage their employees to rejuvenate their surroundings.
ARS believes in Working Hard, and Changing Lives. Serving customers is critical to the success of ARS, and serving their local communities around the country is critical to ensuring a positive well-respected reputation. By giving back to the community, ARS makes a great imprint within that community; and within the service center, employees develop unity and self-esteem. At the corporate offices, employees participated in a month full of community service opportunities all around Memphis.

Consistent, steady growth creates a lot of opportunity not only for the advancement of our employees but it also positions us to set even higher customer service standards in the industry. When we rescue customers from their HVAC and plumbing problems and get them back to their daily routine, we are improving their lives. When we give back to our communities and make a difference, we are changing lives,” said Don Karnes, Chief Executive Officer at ARS.
