What Happened in 2015

Our growth in 2015 lead to the addition of 23 new people to our team! Every year we are determined to get better at what we do and our people are constantly learning and continuing their education in order to better serve our customers. So this year we are thankful that we were able to keep adding good people to Rhyme.

In September we acquired Advantage Office Solutions AOS of Green Bay, WI and in December we acquired C&H Sales & Service of Sheboygan, WI. These acquisitions mark the 18th and 19th local business that have joined Rhyme!

But what gives us the greatest pride is the growing number of great employees and clients we get to work with.” – Mike Steinhoff, President of Rhyme

Community Involvement

Every year we see an increase in the need for community support from local businesses. So we made it a top priority to grow our level of involvement in those communities. Notable moments from 2015 included:

  • The 15th Annual Lee Lake Polar Bear Plunge raised almost $30,000 this past February bringing the 15-year total to over $228,000 for cancer research!!
  • Raising over $13,000 at the 7th Annual Steve Ennis Memorial Golf Classic, bringing our 7-year total to almost $90,000!!!
  • Awarding 6 Rhyme Time Scholarships this year - our largest group ever, totaling $7,000!

Thank you again to all of our vendors, clients and employees for another great year, and we look forward to serving you for another 70 years!
