What Drives Long-Term Success? A Resilient, Resourceful Team
(4th Quarter 2010)
A Message From
Leo A. Vecellio, Jr.
Vecellio Group, Inc. President, Chairman
In our many decades as a contractor, weve experienced a number of boom and bust cycles. One thing has held true throughout these cycles and it holds true today: the men and women in our lines of work are hardy, resilient folks.
From building roads, bridges and runways, to mining aggregates, to building and operating petroleum terminals, the work we do is complex and often involves very challenging conditions.
The long-term success weve been blessed with is a testament to the character and skills of our employees, especially those who have experienced one or more of these cycles themselves.
As we continue to work diligently, with our focus on safety and quality throughout the markets phases, we pave the way for many more decades of success together.
All Asphalt Plants Meet NAPA’s Comprehensive Standards
All 10 Vecellio Group asphalt plants once again meet the high standards of the National Asphalt Pavement Associations Diamond Commendation program, which establishes criteria for excellence in plant operation and maintenance.
Meeting these high standards is an annual goal for the Groups asphalt production facilities, strategically located throughout the market areas of Sharpe Bros. in North Carolina and Ranger Construction in Florida.
Companies are rated in appearance, operations, environmental, safety, permitting and compliance, and community relations.
Sharpe Bros. and Ranger Construction’s commitment to excellence is a reflection of the high standards of the entire Vecellio Group.
