Last week, we received news that EMJ Corporation ranks #69 on Engineering News-Record’s 2017 list of the Top 400 Contractors in the U.S.
This is EMJ’s 25th year on ENR’s list. We started at #166 back in 1992. In 2014, we ranked #129, followed by #101 in 2015, and #82 in 2016.
Today, our ranking, and our progress and growth, is due to our family of companies, each of our outstanding employees and the exceptional experience they deliver to our clients on every completed project.
Among these companies, EMJ Construction’s offices in Boston, Dallas and Chattanooga continue to elevate our brand through exceptional project delivery in a variety of sectors. EMJ’s teams have diversified their scope of work and expanded into industrial, distribution, multi-unit housing, healthcare, hospitality and more.
EMJ Special Projects, formerly Accent Construction Services, continues to serve the needs of clients seeking quick turnaround, single-tenant builds. The company has carved out a niche in adaptive reuse and historic renovation that has opened the doors to unique and innovative opportunities.
And, RedStone Construction Services, a Native-owned company based in Tulsa, Okla., just completed the corporation’s largest project in history, River Spirit Casino Resort.
If you take a deeper dive into the ENR rankings, you will see that EMJ ranks #15 in the Power sector. This is because of Signal Energy, which provides engineering, procurement and construction for renewable energy and infrastructure projects throughout North America. Among Signal’s top projects in 2016 were the Amazon Solar Farm in Virginia and Tranquility Solar Project in California.
While this ranking is a great honor for EMJ’s family of companies, in many ways it represents the accomplishments and growth of our clients who have partnered with us for many years.
So where does EMJ go from here? How do we elevate our efforts to set new standards within the industry and serve our clients better than the competition? Our people and C2C.
We have an exceptionally talented group of people at EMJ. Our team is of high integrity and a strong moral compass. Our culture of servant leadership guides us in serving our clients, but also each other.
Our C2C approach is centered around our clients and drives our teams to deliver unique value to our clients, partners and colleagues. The result is an exceptional construction experience that builds trusted relationships and transforms the way people view our industry.
By practicing servant leadership and aiming to live up to our values—honest, selfless, passionate, smart, responsible and gritty—in everything that we do, we are set up for success for years to come.
