Dec 20, 2018
"Sobol", in English "Sable" (a reference to sable hunters) is predominantly a Jewish family name. For Archiel, owner and operator of Sobol Inc., it is much more than just a moniker for his business.
"Sobol" stands for dedication, dignity, commitment and honour. These principals — applied to all aspects of work and family life — have been cherished and valued for generations and is evident in their rich past.
Archiel applies these values to how Sobol Inc. operates and to the work his team performs every day — a key factor to their ongoing success.
