American Safety Council ("ASC"), a leading provider of online courses for driver education, workplace safety training and continuing education, today announced record-breaking growth and revenue in the first half of 2019.
Earnings in the first two quarters increased nearly 25% compared to results from the same period a year ago. The company also generated record revenue in the first half of the year.
"Our first-half accomplishments can be attributed to significant investments in staff, technology and data-driven marketing," said John Comly, chief executive officer of American Safety Council. "We expect our growth to accelerate throughout the rest of 2019."
ASC's double-digit growth was driven in part by the successful launch of new products on OSHAEducationCenter.com, the company's leading workplace safety brand. ASC also capitalized on the shift in consumer preferences from classroom-based learning to online learning.
New additions to the ASC team have also been vital to the company's promising first-half results. ASC has added over 50 new employees since the start of 2018, including over 20 new hires in the first half of 2019 alone.
Since joining American Safety Council as CEO in 2017, Comly has spearheaded key changes to the company's business model and team structure. His direction played a critical role in the company's recent growth, which garnered awards for Comly's leadership and American Safety Council's operational excellence.
