President's Note - Find a Way to Win
8 months ago
We are in unprecedented times with the Covid-19 pandemic impacting virtually every aspect of our lives. We face all sorts of disruption to our work and routines but still are managing to “find a way to win” despite the challenges. As most of our projects support the nation’s critical infrastructure, we feel blessed for the opportunity to continue working. As a company and employees we also accept responsibility to take recommended precautions to be responsible for the sake of our families, co-workers and customers. Please continue those efforts to work safely. To further help our efforts, GBI has also implemented various technologies to facilitate remote work and communications.
We are thankful for the strong safety and quality reputation we have built together which helps differentiate GBI during these tough industry conditions. Building on that reputation GBI was recently awarded its largest single project ever to fabricate and erect 18 API storage tanks by Holly Frontier at their biodiesel plant in Artesia, New Mexico. This project is located just 36 miles up the road from GBI’s Carlsbad office. We won the highly coveted project over 8 other competitors. Engineering is currently in process with expected field construction starting this September. Special thanks to Brock Payton and Steve Benedict who led the extensive sales effort and to everyone who worked so hard to win this marquee project.
Let’s all please continue to keep working safely and with quality. Let’s also continue our competitive spirit to find a way to win despite whatever challenges are thrown at us. We are extremely proud of the Great Basin Nation and the work you do to build America!
