In November 2010, Cianbro acquired Starcon. Both companies had been working together in an alliance relationship for 12 months prior to the acquisition. This acquisition will present tremendous opportunities for both companies, their team members, and the customers that we serve together. Many of you have been able to interact with the Cianbro team. Continual interaction to date has been a very positive experience for both Starcon and Cianbro. We are a much stronger company today, financially sound and positioned to build a solid foundation in 2011.
We have many positive activities going on across the company. In November and December of 2010, our safety performance, quality performance, insurances, health care, and financial performance all exceeded our expectations. Our Maintenance nested sites continue to grow and we are expanding our opportunities in the Midwest (Illinois, Indiana, Ohio) and Tri-state areas (Kentucky/West Virginia). We have some new opportunities for new nested Maintenance sites on the West Coast that we are currently pursuing. Our first quarter of 2011 turnaround business is very strong in the Midwest, Gulf Coast and West Coast. In January of 2011, we met our net profit goals and expect to see this same type of performance in February and March.
Our key areas in 2011 will be centered on Improving our Safety, Taking Care of Our People, Satisfying Our Customers and Building Financial Stability. Starcon will work closely with the Cianbro organization, building upon our organizational structure, infrastructure, and key work processes across departments to build a stronger foundation for the future.
Your loyalty, hard work, dedication, and can-do attitude are greatly appreciated. Let’s continue to build a company in which we can all be proud.
