American Moving & Installation is 100% Woman-Owned

While gender and race are commonly the most-discussed aspects of diversity, we cannot forget age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, educational background and more. At American Moving & Installation, we embrace diversity, and, in many ways this approach to diversity and non-discrimination is woven into the very fabric of our company, being that we are the only certified 100% woman-owned, union commercial moving and installation company in the state of Massachusetts.

As stated on our website and employment application, American Moving & Installation Inc:

affords equal opportunity to all applicants without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, veteran status or any other status protected under local, state or federal laws.

Moreover, our commitment to diversity is evident in American’s workforce, vendors, charitable endeavors, business relationships, and clients in a wide range of industries from hospitality to workforce sharing to high tech companies.

American has a history of partnerships with companies founded or led by women, such as Re-Stream, O’Mahoney Electrical, Elaine Construction, ezCater, Amundi Pioneer, True-Fit, Building Pathways, Worldwide Freight Management, and Mother Dirt, just to name a few. We are proud to be one of the most successful union, commercial moving companies in the industry that is the only one 100% woman-owned.
