Ball Office: Local Flavor, International Reach
You may recall our post last week about our home in Richmond, Virginia. We love it here. We’re from the area, and Ball Office has called it home base for 15 years now. You’d like it, too.
We also consider ourselves an integral part of our community. We went to great lengths to get certifications as a Small Women and Minority Owned Business and from the Womenâ€™s Business Enterprise National Council. Melissa Ball, our owner, has long been a partner and member of the Richmond Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners. We’re also active with a number of philanthropic organizations and non-profits. It’s what we do.
But we don’t limit ourselves to Central Virginia. We’ve done work with the U.S. Military, and they’ve moved our products almost everywhere we have troops, both in the United States and overseas. It takes a mountain of paperwork to move an army, and that means desks, chairs, staples, and even cleaning supplies.
We help supply the Federal Government with supplies, furniture and equipment. They use it to outfit their offices across the country.
If you follow us on social media, you may have seen the photo below. It is one of several pallets that are currently on their way to Havana, Cuba. It’s cleaning supplies and staples for what will become our newest United States Embassy overseas.
We also work with NGOs and foreign government to help them meet their needs. We recently sent enough chairs (very similar to the ones below) to outfit a new elementary school in Ghana.
Again, you would like it here in Richmond. We’d love for you to come by some time. But really, it doesn’t matter where you are. We can come to you.
