“After 15 years working with Summers-Taylor, I would summarize their value-add for my company with the following points: They’ve got the equipment and the competency to move quickly on any sizeable project. If they say they can move mountains in three weeks, they’ve got the resources, competency and people to make that happen.
“Secondly, if you’ve got an excavation project, and you also need engineering support, they’ve got the people and competency to play that role as well. If you need to save time and stay on budget but also require some level of engineering, Summers-Taylor has these capabilities as well, which can be beneficial in saving on engineering costs and time.
“Thirdly, in geographic areas where Summers-Taylor has a presence, typically they have someone like Ted Bryant who knows the local government and can easily navigate through permitting and building regulations. This is important when you’re doing a sizable project and need to move quickly.”
