Although 2020 was fraught with hardship, uncertainty, and unrest, we can all take pride in moments of success despite adversity. Like so many other businesses, Kinney Group transitioned to a remote workforce in mid-March. This change brought some challenges for sure, but it also revealed the resilience and persistence of our Choppers. Now that last year has come to a close, Kinney Group is busy with our 2021 Kickoff, starting the year off right with setting goals and celebrating our successes. We’re taking a moment to look back at some of the 2020 wins here at Kinney Group:

Engineers undertook 120 new engagements/projects in 2020.
Over the course of the year, we held 15 webinars with 370 attendees.

Our incredible team of engineers spent 51,728.75 hours on engagements, delivering exceptional solutions, services, and results for our customers.
