TAIT & Associates Wins OCBJ’S 22nd Annual Family-Owned Business Longevity Award

We are proud to announce that TAIT & Associates won the Longevity Award at the Orange County Business Journal’s (OCBJ) 2021 Family-Owned Business Awards. The 2021 Family-Owned Business Awards program recognized five exceptional Orange County businesses in the following award categories: Small Business Award, Medium Business Award, Large Business Award, Up & Coming Award, and Longevity Award. For this year’s Family-Owned Business Awards, there were 52 nominees. OCBJ presented the five awards on Thursday, August 26, 2021 at the Irvine Marriott.

Founded in 1964, TAIT & Associates was established to provide a culture for its associates to work and thrive at an extreme level of competence, care, and innovation for the benefit of its customers. We deeply believe our collective established values that adorn the walls not only guide us but provide a constant reminder of our “why.”

At this year’s OCBJ Family-Owned Business Awards, TAIT was especially honored to win the Longevity Award.  This awards event was the perfect opportunity to recognize clients, colleagues, and friends whose Orange County-based family-owned firms have distinguished themselves via their business accomplishments and contributions to the local community.

“The firm (TAIT) evolved from a gas station developer into a diversified enterprise that provides engineering, environmental and land development services, among its offerings.  Kenneth is still involved in the company as chairman emeritus; the firm’s leadership team also includes his two sons, President Rich Tait, and Chief Executive Officer Tom Tait, also the former mayor of Anaheim,” describes the OCJB article published September 6.

The company is now in its third generation and 57th year of business, with Tom Tait’s son, Trevor, heading up operations as managing partner of the firm.

“My grandpa started the company with an entrepreneurial spirit,” said Trevor Tait in the OCBJ article published September 6. “He is an incredibly kind and generous person, and that culture is ingrained in every aspect of the company.”

TAIT & Associates is honored to be recognized as an outstanding Family-Owned business in Orange County. Thank you to the Orange County Business Journal and the community of businesses for nominating TAIT to be in the running for one of the top Family-Owned businesses in Orange County!
