He makes work fun and is an asset to our crew.” – Steve A., Pipe Supervisor

Wade G. (left) – Dozer Operator – 35 Years

“I remember meeting Wade for the first time in 2002 when I started at Brubacher. He was operating a D8 pushing pans on a large golf course project in Easton, Pennsylvania. Wade always had a smile on his face but wasn’t afraid to let you know if he felt something needed changed or if he had a concern. He has demonstrated his flexibility and willingness to do whatever is necessary in his 35 years, from operating D8 pushing pans or ripping rock in a shale pit operation that feeds a brick plant to operating a D4 doing fine grade work if needed. Wade also helped us get the Energy Service Division up and running, being willing to travel upstate and operate D8 building O&G well pads. I am honored to work alongside many tenured employees like Wade here at Brubacher.” – Brad C., Director of Field Operations

Jimi S. (right) – Off-Road Truck Driver – 15 Years

“When I first moved here from Detroit 20 years ago, I had been in this line of work for a while. But everything was different, eh?! Brubacher’s ‘Core Values’ really struck me, how unusual in construction! Operations were different. Heck, even the dirt was different! People (with more patience than me), mentored and taught me new methods. Safety was important, even paramount! I found faith in those who had faith in me. They genuinely cared, from the top down. Years later, I find myself in a position to mentor others, how cool is that?! I was led here, despite my destination. There comes a time where you find you have so much to give back and so little time to do so! Thank you, Brubacher and ya’ll!” – Jimi

“I have worked with Jim on many different Brubacher jobs. He ran pan, on-site trucks, and miscellaneous other equipment. Jim always has little stories to tell at our morning huddle of things that happened here at Brubacher in his past 15 years and it puts a smile on everyone’s face to start the day. It’s been a pleasure working with Jim the past 15 years and I hope there will be many more. Congratulations on your 15 years Jim.” – Lennie M., Site Superintendent

Timothy M. (center) – Utilities Pipe Supervisor – 35 Years

“Tim’s 35 years of experience shines when it comes to complex projects. His ability to adapt and overcome unforeseen obstacles is like no other. He is diversified and can tackle any project given to him and his crew. He is a great teacher and leader, working with new hires and sharing his knowledge. It has been a pleasure working with him during my 13 years at Brubacher.” – Steve L., Utilities Superintendent

“Since Tim began his career at Brubacher as a Laborer, then as a Pipe Layer, Equipment Painter, Operator, and Supervisor, he shares a high level of initiative and drive to improve every day. Having worked together in the field and shop, we share many good memories and a few interesting stories! However, the ones I’m most excited about are those yet to come as we work together Shaping the World We Live In through our impact on the lives of those we lead and with whom we interact. Thanks for 35 great years!” – Keith B., President
