Clayco has just been recognized by Engineering News-Record Midwest as the 2021 Contractor of the Year, and it means a lot to me that we’re being honored after a year that was full of countless challenges and setbacks.

One of the things we always stay true to at Clayco is our commitment to safety and putting our people before everything we do. In the wake of the pandemic, we extended that commitment even further than before, and we assumed a leadership role by showing other companies how to do things right to keep their team members safe and engaged.

Together, we helped write guidelines to keep critical construction projects going, delivered $1.4 billion in distribution centers to ensure people across the country were supplied with what they needed most, and even completed a research and development facility for Pfizer that is working directly on the frontlines to develop lifesaving vaccines.

I know that I speak for everyone at Clayco in saying how grateful we are for this outstanding recognition, and I look forward to the ways that our company will continue to raise the bar and set a big example for others in the years ahead.
