70 years ago, the desire of two men to provide for their families was the inspiration to build the corporation that we know today. Even through the transitions from private family ownership to their next generation heirs and finally to an employee-owned company, the foundational values and services remain at the company’s core.
CCC’s longevity and strength are a direct result of the employees’ work ethic, dedication, integrity, teamwork and motivation in building strong relationships with our customers, service providers and each other.
We are profoundly grateful to all those who have contributed to our success. Working in a wide range of industries throughout the U.S. and abroad, from regional offices to extremely remote job sites, we recognize and appreciate the achievements of our predecessors as well as those who are actively contributing today.
We commemorate this milestone and also use it to fuel new inspiration to create great achievements as we continue to strive to be a premier heavy industrial contractor.
At the end of February, CCC passed the significant safety milestone of 1 million hours without a recordable incident and 4.5 million hours since the last lost time incident.
These milestones could not have been reached without every employee’s hard work and dedication to the company’s EHS program and ultimately our focus on Achieving Zero Accidents.
