Just about everyone suffered during the “Great Recession”, but no one was quite as hard hit as those in the construction trades. But despite the uncertainty and concern about the future, no one fought back quite as hard either.
Construction workers are regularly under-appreciated. Often their efforts go unrecognized, and their skills and experience are under-estimated. And yet, in spite of all that, they consistently prove themselves to be hard-working, resilient, and innovative. No matter the challenges they face or the odds stacked against them, they always persevere…not just because it’s their job to do it, but because that’s who they were born to be.
Ozinga’s Born to Build campaign is all about honoring American construction workers and celebrating everything that makes them unique and indispensable. It’s all about recognizing that our industry is nothing without their doggedness, creativity, pride, and strength of character; and about knowing that we would get nowhere without that spirit of determination they bring to everything they do.
The “Great Recession” is now far behind us and we are seeing a rapidly increasing demand for workers in the field of construction. As we look to hire drivers, laborers, QC technicians and a number of other professionals, we’re not just trying to make up numbers; we’re looking for qualified and talented people who are ready to do and be the best. What we want above all else are those singular and remarkable individuals who don’t just build because they have to, but who build because that’s what they were born to do.
