Last year was: “Organic growth in investments (and) in personnel continued revenue growth for the company,” said Adam Brissman, co-owner. “We have been hiring and training new project managers and investing a lot of time and money in training for OSHA 30 classes, just started a Wisconsin Dept. of Workforce Development-approved training program for roofing and sheet metal as well as a massive overhaul of our in-house training programs.
