H&S Completes Annual Road Pickup

Recently, H&S Protection completed our annual road pickup on a 2-mile stretch of Highway 66 between Stevens Point and Wisconsin Rapids. It’s an annual trek for many of us. There’s a lot of garbage out there, more than there should be, and it’s important for us to do something about it.

Our employees live in the area, but we had several come up to join us from our Pewaukee, WI office as well. We all want to make the areas in which we live a little better. This is one of our commitments as a company and through our employees to help. We’re not going to change the world in a day, but we’re going to do our part.

You can expect that from H&S on the job site as well. We hire people with a “can do” attitude.

Twelve staff members completed the highway cleanup June 5. Rain or shine, we’ll be out there again next year, picking up plastic bottles, bags, cans, old tires, wind-blown plastic bags and other items discarded by the side of the road. We’re doing our part to keep Wisconsin beautiful.


“It’s great to bring our people together from both offices, get outdoors and do some good for the local community. We’re to operate in the Stevens Point area, and do our part to make it a little better every day,” said H&S Co-owner Mike Horgan.

Family Business the Way to Go for Kelly Ransbottom

Working in a family business is the way to go for Kelly Ransbottom. Before joining H&S Protection three years ago, she lived in Little Chute, WI and worked for a family-owned company for 13 years. She found H&S to be a good and dependable company to work for when she moved to the Stevens Point area looking for employment, after answering an ad through a temp service.

Kelly’s husband Steve had been commuting to Plover from Little Chute for over 8 months. With their children having moved out on their own, they decided to downsize and reduce Steve’s commute to 10 minutes. “Recently we built a new house and are happy homeowners again,” Kelly said.

If you need to find something at H&S’s Stevens Point office, Kelly is the person to reach. She handles customer service, answer phones and resolves issues. She works on collections, customer invoicing, processing and posting cash and credit receipts. And, she handles other miscellaneous tasks that come her way.

She has been married to Steve for 19 years, and they have four children – Preston, Molly, Allison and Charlotte, as well as three grandchildren – Aubree, Walker and Shelby. Kelly likes spending time with her family and grandchildren. “I enjoy quilting and gardening. Flowers are my weakness,” she observed with a smile.

“I also enjoy taking pictures of nature – butterflies, birds and flowers, as well as photos of the grandkids – if they sit still long enough,” she chuckled.
