On Thursday, May 20th, ERMCO was announced as winner of the Top Notch 2010 Standards of Excellence Contractor of the Year Award. The program was developed by Top Notch of Indiana for the purpose of recognizing achievements in Indiana’s union construction industry and bringing together labor, management, ownership and leadership segments of our industry.
The Contractor of the Year award recognizes the top union contractor among all General Contractors and Subcontractors and was based on productivity, quality, ethics, training, safety, diversity, and industry involvement. The IBEW Local #481 and The Quality Connection/ NECA also won in their respective categories.
ERMCO President, Darrell Gossett, said the following about the honor:
“We are truly honored to be named Contractor of the Year in the Top Notch Standards of Excellence Awards program. Because of the quality and integrity of Top Notch as the presenting group, as well as the esteemed group of judges who reviewed the entries and made the selections, I cannot think of any recognition in our industry that could mean more to us. Many awards recognize one facet of a company’s operation such as safety, ethics, etc. This criteria for this award looked at virtually every component of the operation. Additionally, they verified that we actually do what we say we do by surveying our employees in an anonymous fashion. Finally, this awards program included contractors from all segments of our industry throughout the state of Indiana, which we believe includes many of the most competent and capable construction companies anywhere in the U.S. Given the high quality of the contractors who were eligible, we are even more humbled by this recognition.
Most of all, I want to emphasize that this is a team award. The measures considered by the judges are a direct reflection of the mission, vision and values of ERMCO. Our team members throughout the company have embraced these values and have made them a part of the ERMCO culture. Each one of the ERMCO team members can be proud of the part they have played in making us the “Best of the Best,” as described by Top Notch.”
