Fairbanks, AK-Three years ago a start up cargo and passenger charter company sprung up out of what beautiful wilderness of Alaska. In the past three years we have watched Kesuk Charters develop into one of the most economically viable companies in Alaska. When we caught up with owner, Roger Bates, at Fairbanks International yesterday he was quoted as saying, “I never in my wildest dreams believed Kesuk would have grown and become as successful and diverse as it has today, three years wow!”
In the past three years Kesuk has serviced the many rural areas that exist in our beautiful state with the highest safety and business rating. Mr. Bates attributes this to the professionalism and attentiveness of all his employees. In the last three years, Kesuk has evolved from a small company to a company that keeps the rural small community economies stable or growing.
Although this is a great day for Kesuk to celebrate its glorious past, Mr. Bates, makes it a clear point that the future is bright for Kesuk because of that celebrated past. Kesuk. “I feel our brightest days are the days coming in the future” said Mr. Bates. When asked to elaborate, he left the future open to anything, because that’s the founding ideal behind Kesuk.
