Whereas our competitors constructed systems that were designed by engineering firms, Rembco created value for our clients by designing and building custom solutions. Because our systems were specifically suited to our client’s needs, they provided better performance – often at a lower cost. Initially, our little company was a well-kept secret, but before long, our clients and our competitors began talking about us. (somewhat differently, we imagine)
In 1997, Clay and Denise Griffin moved into key leadership roles. Under their guidance, Rembco Geotechnical Contractors, Inc. expanded the scope of the company’s construction services and increased capacity. They added engineering and project management expertise, hired and trained additional workers, purchased bigger equipment and moved to a larger facility. They began to tackle projects that were much larger than Rembco had ever taken-on before. And they grew Rembco into a well-known name.
From 1999 through 2008, Rembco experienced sustained, strong growth – providing services mainly to commercial clients in the areas of foundation support, soil stabilization and specialty grouting. Growth in our industry (and most others) dropped-off sharply during the recession of 2008 and retracted even further in the following year. By then, however, the entire Rembco team had taken deliberate steps to improve our efficiency and put us on very stable (substantially debt free) footing. That set the stage for us to thrive. By 2010, despite the still stagnant economy, Rembco’s financial performance was the best in the company’s 28 year history. As of this writing, we’re still on a steady upward trend.
