Sacramento – Senator Andy Vidak (R-Hanford) recognized James “Jamie” McCann, owner of McCann & Sons Truck & Tractor Service Center in Lemoore, as Senate District 14’s “2016 Small Business of the Year” at the California Small Business Day 2016 today in Sacramento.
“It was a surprise and an honor to be chosen as Senator Vidak’s Small Business of the Year,” said McCann.
McCann & Sons was established in 1997 in Lemoore in California’s Central Valley. The company started as a custom hay harvesting company and expanded into diesel tractor repairs and sales. In 2011, the business moved to a new facility located at Hwy 41 and Hwy 198, and the size of the shop at this facility enabled McCann & Sons to also repair commercial diesel trucks. Since that time, the company’s truck repair business has grown to 90 percent of the business.
McCann is active in the community, including serving as a trustee for the Island Union School District, being an ambassador for the Lemoore Chamber of Commerce and restoring dilapidated bicycles, which he gives to kids who might not otherwise receive one during the holiday season.
“Jamie’s business growth, community involvement and contribution to our Valley’s economy is inspiring,” said Vidak. “It is an honor to have McCann & Sons Truck and Tractor represent the 14th Senate District as the 2016 Small Business of the Year.”
California Small Business Day 2016 is hosted by the California Small Business Association, a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization with a mission to provide small business with a meaningful voice in state and federal governments.
