With a new calendar year upon us it’s a fitting time to take a stock of all that was accomplished in the last twelve months. We look back on 2016 and are filled with appreciation of the skill and dedication of our people who make important contributions in so many different capacities.
- O&G crews poured some of our largest concrete installations ever, involving multiple plants and their delivery staffs;
- The original Earth Products Showcase in Bridgeport was reborn, taking the team six months to design and rebuild and earning it a “Best Showroom” HOBI Award;
- So many of you invested extra hours and even entire weekends to overcome obstacles and propel our corporate-wide ERP conversion toward completion;
- The Asphalt Division successfully completed major upgrades at the Bridgeport and Stamford asphalt plants, including the installation of new liquid asphalt tanks to meet the latest ConnDOT production standards;
- Record amounts of aggregate were produced in and delivered from our quarries, even as an exemplary safety record was maintained;
- The Contract E Joint Venture in New Haven, an effort of more than five years and one of the largest ConnDOT projects ever undertaken, is virtually complete;
- The popular “O&G Builds” program continued to thrive at Platt High School, exposing interested high schoolers to the real-world workings of construction;
- Your compassion and generosity were on display many times and especially so in our holiday toy drives and award-winning “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” events;
- More than 1,000 guests from around the state came to the third Touch a Truck, which earned a national Construction Marketing Association STAR “Public Service” award;
- You voted O&G a “Connecticut Top Workplace,” the second year in a row; and
- We received the Hartford Business Journal’s “Family Business Award” – which is particularly gratifying to a fourth-generation company with many multi- generation and multi-relative employees.
You are faithful to the work you do and you excel at it. You give of your time and talents beyond what is expected. We are deeply grateful for the impact that you, the O&G family, have made in so many areas.
With our appreciation, The Oneglia Family
