  • On February 2, 2017, Oldcastle Precast San Antonio, Texas achieved four years without an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable injury.  
  • All plant employees, including President of the Central Group Jason Jackson and South Texas Regional General Manager Cory Crawford, gathered for a well-deserved celebration. Employees enjoyed a special catered luncheon. 
  • As part of the celebration, the employees were encouraged to design a logo that best represented their safety accomplishment. 
"I could not be prouder of this team. For us here, every day is another opportunity to improve safety. We are never satisfied with just meeting the standard, we like to exceed standards. Our team understands that the best reward we get is for everyone to go home safe every single day." - Site Manager Orlando Rodriguez 
  • The company's internship started with two students in the summer of 2001. The program gradually grew each year, attracting more students. Today, anywhere from 15 to 20 students intern with Tilcon New York each summer in various departments.
  • Tilcon New York's internship program starts with one week of training. Once training ends, all interns report to their manager who will mentor the student for the duration of the program. 
  • For the past three years, Tilcon has recruited students from a variety of backgrounds, including civil engineering, mine engineering, mechanical engineering, construction engineering, accounting, finance, human resources, geology and business. The company also looks to nearby community colleges and vocational schools to recruit welding and heavy equipment mechanics.
  • "We need younger, bright people to get into this industry. The industry is not going away so job security is sound. And that should be the main attraction of this type of program for a student coming out of a college or trade school."
