Oldcastle Infrastructure Companies Collect Food for Local Food Banks

During the months of November and December, Oldcastle Infrastructure companies in Tennessee, Kentucky and Candiac, Quebec sponsored food drives for local food banks. The food and hygiene products collected will help many families in need during the holiday season and after.

The food banks that received donations included Joseph’s Storehouse Food Ministry of Lebanon, Tenn. and La Corne d’Abondance of Candiac of Quebec.

Joseph’s Storehouse received essential hygiene products, canned and dried food goods from Oldcastle Infrastructure Lebanon, TN and Lexington, KY employees who hosted the food drive.

According to Robert Billings, Joseph’s Storehouse warehouse supervisor, “People donate canned foods and hardly ever think about the hygiene, toiletry and dried goods, so this is a very welcome donation.”

“I am extremely proud of our team’s efforts in this worthwhile venture and very pleased to help out less fortunate families in our and surrounding communities.” stated Dave Terry, Site Manager over both locations.  “It was a great way to end our year of community service events and we look forward to continuing the tradition in 2018.”

Joseph’s Storehouse Food Ministry is a non‐profit, faith‐based food ministry distributing assistance to an average of 400‐ 500 families per month in Wilson, Trousdale, Smith and DeKalb Counties of TN.

Oldcastle Enclosures donated non‐perishable food to La Corne d’Abondance of Candiac who manages the Guignolée for the Candiac community.

Oldcastle Infrastructure Construction/Erecting Team Celebrates Impressive Safety Record

Oldcastle Infrastructure Construction/Erecting Team Celebrates Impressive Safety Record

Oldcastle Infrastructure employees complete over a year with no recordable workplace injuries.

Since November 11, 2016, Oldcastle Infrastructure’s Construction/Erecting Team of South Bethlehem, New York has gone without an OSHA recordable injury. A tremendous feat in the construction industry when speaking about ever changing job sites.

Having a unique scope of work, the Construction/Erecting Team works inside, outside, on the ground and on top of buildings in the cold, rain, snow and heat when erecting their precast concrete products. They travel to new sites each day and typically encounter uncontrolled environments with a new set of hazards.

“To be able to adjust to each situation, identify hazards, get the job done and have ZERO accidents is a huge accomplishment,” stated Shawn Biel, Assistant Field Manager of Oldcastle Infrastructure.

Field Safety Manager Benjamin Jump remarked, “Everyone in the field is doing a great job, from the Foreman, who coaches and selects the right men for the right task each day, to the newest employee, who knows they can ask questions and recognizes they will not be put into a situation they don’t feel comfortable in. Our safety training is not just once a year, but every day, and it shows.”

“Continually striving to create a safe and efficient worksite where there are no accidents and no one gets hurt is our goal,” stated Field Manager Patrick Maslyn. “We provide employees with the necessary resources, equipment and training to deliver according to their designated responsibilities.  The morning safety huddles, as well as our weekly online meeting where we share safety concerns witnessed on a particular job, help make us a “tight knit” group. Everyone on the crew is doing a great job looking out for the safety of their fellow crew members, in addition to other trade safety, on all jobs.”

“This is only the second time in the last 17 years that our Construction Team has gone without a recordable for a year which is a great accomplishment,” stated General Manager Chris Speck.  “The guys are really working as a team to keep each other safe and the results are an attribute to what can be done when everyone is and believes that they are responsible for safety.  I look forward to the Team’s accomplishments in 2018 as we continue to only get better.”

Oldcastle Infrastructure ensures that our companies provide a healthy and safe workplace for our employees and contractors, and take due care of all customers and visitors at our locations.

Oldcastle Infrastructure Perris Facility Attains 2 Years with Zero OSHA Recordable Injuries

Oldcastle Infrastructure Perris Facility Attains 2 Years with Zero OSHA Recordable Injuries

No Oldcastle Infrastructure Perris employee has missed time, been restricted or transferred because of injury since October 2015

Another perfect year for employee safety for Oldcastle Infrastructure Perris, which operates one of Oldcastle’s prestress/precast manufacturing plants. The companies approximately 50 employees combined to work roughly 927,429 without any Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)‐recordable.

Due to extraordinary safety efforts, the Oldcastle Infrastructure Perris team surpassed the two‐year safety milestone on October 15, 2017.

Maintaining the highest standards of safety for our employees, as well as our customers and communities, is our top priority at Oldcastle Infrastructure. It’s essential in potentially hazardous work environments like ours, and every employee is dedicated to putting safety first.

Southern Cal Area Safety Manager Adriana Ramirez commented, “Two years of recordable free incidents is an amazing accomplishment!  The team has definitely come a long way from 5 years ago and their safety commitment has just gotten stronger!  There is a sense of family throughout the plant that is contagious and a joy to be around.   Great job Team!  Keep on going home SAFE!”

“I am very proud of the Perris team and the remarkable safety results over the past two years,” said Todd Ebbert Southern Cal Regional General Manager. “This is another example of a motivated team all heading in the same direction with the goal of viewing each task through the lens of safety and wellbeing for each member. Congratulations to the entire Perris group”

Perris Site Manager Scott Hicks added, “When we passed the one year mark a year ago we were overwhelmed with what an accomplishment that was. Now that we have made it two years we have come to understand that our achievement is monumental. It has only been possible through the collective efforts of our production crews, office personnel, and management that we have been able to accomplish this. Our production employees have been instrumental in our success by believing in themselves and looking out for each other daily. They care about each other not just as co‐workers but also like family. We are very proud to have reached this milestone and are looking towards making it another year injury free, one day at a time.“

Recognizing the team’s hard work and dedication to safety, employees and their families were treated to a day of carnival games, jump houses, face painting, and of course lots of catered food. Each employee was given a commemorative jacket and small pocket knife in honor of their pursuit of safety excellence.

We truly appreciate everything you do! Thank you and God Bless!!” said the staff at the Women’s Crisis Center. “The time and effort you put into this project is greatly appreciated.”

Oldcastle Infrastructure Avon Supports Breast Cancer Awareness During Annual Event “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer”

Oldcastle Infrastructure Avon Supports Breast Cancer Awareness During Annual Event “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer”

Supporting their community through Litchfield’s White Memorial Foundation Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk

On Sunday October 22nd, at the nature preserve of White Memorial Conservation Center, Oldcastle Infrastructure Avon engaged in this year’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk” in Litchfield Connecticut to help raise awareness and funding for breast cancer research.

“Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Litchfield County 2017” involved a 5K (or 3.1‐mile) non‐competitive, non‐timed walk, attracting more than 500 participants and several local teams. Several walkers sported pink T‐shirts, sneakers, feather boas, face‐ painting and hair dyes in hues ranging from salmon to fuchsia. Pink is the official color of the American Cancer Society’s yearly nationwide endeavors to raise money for treatment, assistance and research to combat breast cancer.

One of the teams hailed from Oldcastle Infrastructure, a precast concrete manufacturing company in Avon, Connecticut. Plant accountant Dana Bock-Decoteau was one of the company’s participating 45 employees and their families who walked. “We are here to raise awareness and money for breast cancer,” she said. “It is a significant cause to support and we are happy to have raised $2,710 this year.” Oldcastle Infrastructure Avon plans to sponsor next year’s event.

The event featured raffle prizes, wood‐fired pizza and a survivors dining tent. Organizers said the event will eventually raise $46,000 by year’s end for breast cancer treatment, assistance and research.

“Cancer Facts & Figures 2017,” a yearly study by the American Cancer Society, approximates that there will be an estimated 1,688,780 new cancer cases diagnosed and 600,920 cancer deaths in the U.S. this year.  Within that group, 252,710 women will be diagnosed (40,610 will die) and 2,470 men will be diagnosed, 460 will die.

The Making Strides Walk was established in 1984 when Massachusetts breast cancer survivor Margery Gould Rath wanted to find a way to celebrate with fellow cancer survivors and to raise funds. Gould Rath created a “move‐along‐a‐thon.” The first event, held in Boston, drew 200 participants and became an annual city tradition. By 1993, the event became officially known as the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, attracting 4,000 walkers in New England towns and in 250 communities nationwide. Gould Rath remained a dedicated Making Strides volunteer until she lost her battle with cancer in 2001.

The American Cancer Society estimates that since 1993, more than 13 million walkers nationwide have raised more than $810 million. Funds raised from the event go toward early‐detection education efforts, research and providing information, care and assistance to people impacted by cancer.

For more information about breast cancer, contact the American Cancer Society at 1‐800‐227‐2345 or visit www.cancer.org.

Oldcastle Infrastructure Employees Volunteer at the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank

Oldcastle Infrastructure Employees Volunteer at the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank

The act of “giving back” means different things to different people. For some, it is a monetary issue, while others might view it as a matter of giving their time. However, for employees of Oldcastle Infrastructure Fredericksburg, giving back to the community manifested itself at a local food bank on October 7, 2017.

For approximately 3 hours, employees packed boxes that would later be distributed to low income seniors and individuals with disabilities.  The Oldcastle Infrastructure team assisted in the placement of canned goods into boxes as they moved down an assembly line. Planned for dispersal during the month of October, over 1,488 boxes were packaged. This volunteer opportunity was of particular importance to the Fredericksburg team, as many communities surrounding their plant are supported by the food bank.

“With all the tragedy of the recent hurricanes, we sometimes lose focus of the fact there are still people in our own communities who are struggling and in need of food and other assistance,” said Larry Ramsburg, plant manager of Oldcastle Infrastructure Fredericksburg. “It is amazing to see the impact that a few volunteers, donating a couple hours of their weekend, have on feeding families in need within our community.  Thanks to all of our Oldcastle Infrastructure family who participated in this much‐needed service to our community.”

Oldcastle Infrastructure Sales Manager Karen Brock commented, “Acting on an Oldcastle Infrastructure Core Value of helping our communities, we joined with other local volunteers working together for the common good.  It’s amazing what we can accomplish in the first two hours of a day, this quick assembly of care packages will impact many people in need.  It is also a privilege to take part in an organized expression of compassion and are glad we took the time to be here.”

The Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank serves Caroline County, the City of Fredericksburg, King George County, the Locust Grove community, Spotsylvania County and Stafford County as well as neighboring communities. We are members of Feeding America, a national organization supporting more than 200 Food Banks across the country and the largest domestic hunger relief agency in the United States.

They spent the evening and morning sorting perishable foods, donated by local grocery stores, for immediate distribution to families in need.

“We plan on continuing to partner with Foodshare in the coming years. Just one volunteer shift served helps to ensure that more families will not have to go without food required to thrive,” said Troy Mittler, Regional General Manager at Oldcastle Infrastructure. “Moreover, Foodshare staff told our employees that they were the hardest workers they have had and were very impressed that they automatically cleaned up after the work was complete. Housekeeping is instinctive for our guys!  All volunteers received very positive feedback from their experiences. I commend our employees for volunteering for a good cause and supporting their community.”

Hunger is an invisible problem, so most people are unaware of how large the problem actually is. In Hartford and Tolland counties alone—the area served by Foodshare—there are 127,000 people who cannot be sure where their next meal is coming from. That includes one out of every six children in the area.

Oldcastle Enclosure Solutions Employees Volunteer at the Houston Food Bank

Oldcastle Enclosure Solutions Employees Volunteer at the Houston Food Bank

In June, Oldcastle Enclosure Solutions employees gathered to volunteer at the Houston Food Bank and do their part in the fight against hunger in the state of Texas. The corporate initiative was spearheaded to aid people with resources aimed at improving their quality of life and creating a hunger‐free community.

In addition to making meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the coming week, they cleaned out the hot and cold food storage bins, unloaded milk and ice pallets and packed pallets for food distribution to various locations who provide food for families and children. During their time, they helped provide over 14,000 meals!

The organization heavily counts on volunteers to make its mission a reality. “Not only was it rewarding giving back, but we also had the opportunity to learn about the different ways the Houston Food Bank contributes to the community,” noted Sean Dvoran, Plant Manager for Oldcastle Enclosure Solutions Houston. “They do a remarkable job in helping people in need and I was grateful to share this experience with my colleagues.”

Oldcastle Enclosure Solutions plans on continuing to partner with the Houston Food Bank in the coming years.

Every dollar donated to the Houston Food Bank provides the equivalent of three meals for an individual. The organization plans to grow to an annual distribution of 100 million nutritious meals by 2018. In 2016 it was 79 million meals. Because they receive strong support from donors in the community and the food industry, the Food Bank keeps administrative costs low ‐ less than five cents on the dollar and this 5 cents includes the energy it costs to run the building!

Oldcastle Infrastructure Carolinas Continue to Help Feed the Hungry

As part of their ongoing commitment to fighting food insecurity and hunger, Oldcastle Infrastructure Carolinas’ “Feed the Hungry” campaign is continuing to help raise awareness and provide on‐going support to food banks and pantries in its service areas in the Carolinas.

As a result of their efforts, on Saturday, August 19th, Oldcastle Infrastructure Carolinas employees gathered at The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina for their 2nd Annual “Feed the Hungry” community event. The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina provides food for 34 counties surrounding the Raleigh area.

The Oldcastle Infrastructure team spent the day sorting through potatoes provided from local farmers.  Yes, you read correctly, “potatoes”. Large bins of potatoes were sorted into smaller 8‐lb bags. In all, the team processed 12,000 lbs. of potatoes, which equates to 10,105 meals. All the potatoes were distributed within 24 hours and delivered to other agencies and shared with 5 other locations.

“With over 650,000 people in eastern and central North Carolina who are food insecure, our employee volunteers are eager to be part of this important work to prepare food for those in need across the state,” remarked Kevin Blackwell, Vice President / RGM Carolinas Region at Oldcastle Infrastructure. “I would like to give a big thank you to everyone who gave up their day and volunteered at the Food Bank on Saturday, in Raleigh. Equally important, the day was a lot of fun and definitely for a great cause.”

The mission of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina is: No One Goes Hungry in Central & Eastern North Carolina.

Established in 1980, the Food Bank is a nonprofit organization that has provided food for people at risk of hunger in 34 counties for over 35 years. The Food Bank serves a network of more than 800 partner agencies such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and programs for children and adults through distribution centers in Durham, Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh, the Sandhills (Southern Pines) and Wilmington.
