President and CEO, Charlotte Dymarkowski stated, "It's exciting to be listed among the Inc. 5000 fastest growing companies. It's important to note that our growth and success is the result of a company that operates as a team, not only internally, but also with the high-quality contractors, construction management firms and owners for whom we work. As a subcontractor, it has always been our goal to make the contractor look good and the project a success. Whether we meet the project owner or not, they are very important to us and we want them to be happy. My employees are equally important to me. While I expect a lot from them and always strive to make them and us better, I consider them family. They're important. They are what makes Foundation Steel! My employees have sacrificed and fought to make this company what it is. We also benefit from the unions with whom we partner. We are signatory to the International Ironworkers Union and several local Ironworkers Unions, Operators Union, Carpenters and Millwrights Union. Our goal now is to maintain our level of revenue, increase our efficiency and perfect the integration of all our various processes. We need a little rest from the upward climb then maybe we'll climb again. For now, we need to shore up what we've built and breathe. I'd like to publicly thank all my employees who have gone through the trial of growth with us; you are appreciated!"
