Warfel Construction Company is excited to announce that the firm has been named one of ABC’s Top Performers 2023. This prestigious recognition given by Associated Builders and Contractors indicates a firm’s excellence in safety, quality, talent management, education, and community relations. Warfel’s inclusion in this list is a testament to the company’s dedication to its mission of Clients for Life.
“We are thrilled to be included among the top performers for 2023, and I think it speaks to the work that our employees do every day,” says President and CEO Matt Hartzler. “Through our company culture of innovation and our core values of Honesty, Integrity, Accountability, Initiative, and Teamwork, we’re able to be confident leaders in our industry.”
Warfel’s ranking in the top 100, top 50, and top 20 in three separate categories is a significant achievement. The company was ranked #78 in overall Top 250 Performers, #38 in Top General Contractors, and #16 in Top Healthcare Contractors.
One critical aspect that sets Warfel apart from its competitors is a focus on safety. To be considered for the Top Performers list each year, a firm must achieve ABC STEP Gold status or higher based on the previous year’s safety data. “Creating safer workplaces and limiting liability and risk are increasingly shared goals of not just Warfel, but that of our clients as well,” says Jason Beiler, Safety Manager at Warfel.
“ABC’s Top Performer program, in particular the STEP program component, gives us something tangible to show our clients that we are looking out for their interests as well. Participation in the STEP program ensures that we are continually evaluating and evolving our corporate safety program,” he notes.
A Commitment to Excellence
The Top Performers designation is based not only on safety, but also excellence in quality, talent management, education, and community relations. These four categories are outlined in the Accredited Quality Contractor (AQC) program through ABC, which Warfel earned once again in December 2022.
“We believe that Warfel provides value in many ways that are outlined in the AQC program, and it’s evident in how we complete projects and treat our clients,” says Brett Calabretta, VP of Work Acquisition.
A commitment to quality and talent management often go hand in hand. Warfel has a reputation for delivering projects on time and within budget while maintaining the highest standards. A major factor in this achievement is ensuring that the right team is assembled for each project. By having a diverse mix of experiences, they provide a balance of knowledge and understanding from similar projects, along with new and innovative ideas.
The company also prioritizes educating the next generation of construction leaders while focusing on community relations. Through job shadowing and co-op programs with local trade schools, Warfel identifies talent early and helps create a path toward rewarding opportunities in construction. They also ensure that as each team member is brought on board, they receive the necessary training and support to perform their best. This focus on early and continued education is another major way in which Warfel provides values to their clients.
Warfel would like to thank its dedicated clients and employees for being the driving forces that set the firm apart as a construction leader across the Mid-Atlantic region.
