With nearly 1,000 employees working 1.4 million labor hours and driving 2 million miles in one year in the Central region, this is quite an accomplishment. “I am extremely proud of the efforts of the entire team and the individual commitment by each employee to our safety culture and mission. 2016 was an exemplary year for the Central region in all aspects of our business with safety taking top priority. Recognition from of our customers proves that safety drives success,” stated Troy Wagner, Vice President of Safety.
