ST. LOUIS, Mo. - AGC Contracting, LLC announced it will now do business as Olneya Restoration Group. Officials said the name Olneya was chosen after much thought and research to find a name that symbolizes who the company is and the values it stands for in business practices.

Company officials explained that Olneya is the genus of the Desert Ironwood tree. The Ironwood grows in the Sonoran Desert and is known as the “nurse tree.” It creates a special habitat that is crucial to the survival of hundreds of species of desert wildlife, animal and plant alike. Even though the Ironwood doesn't look like a very important tree, in reality it enables life in the desert to flourish. Without it, that life would cease to exist.

Olneya President and CEO Crystal Anderson said this is similar to the way in which Olneya Restoration Group views its services to the public. Although the company may seem insignificant at times, the service it provides is extremely important in the customer's time of need, Anderson said.

Anderson believes the name change will solidify her company as a leader in the storm restoration industry and will further the growth and expansion of Olneya Restoration Group in the St. Louis area and beyond.

“The name change will help us be recognized as an individual and unique company," Anderson said. “It will help us grow as a leader in the industry.”

Olneya Restoration Group provides service to home and property owners by acting as an advocate on their behalf while undergoing storm restoration. Customer service is always top priority at Olneya, and it shows with their commitment to the people they serve.

The name change does not reflect any change in ownership for AGC. Olneya Restoration Group remains locally owned and operated out of the St. Louis area as AGC has been since 2007. For more information, visit www.olneya.com.
