Why I Belong to ABC
"Our company, SSI Construction joined ABC because we wanted to be around like minded companies. We were looking to build relationships with other industry partners who were concerned as much about the politics of the industry as they were about safety. We were also looking for access to a greater subcontractor base and one that stood on the same principles as our company. We also had close ties with other exciting members in ABC. From the moment we walked through the door, it felt like we belonged."
~Michael Schultis, SSI Construction
