InfraStripe’s expansion over the past three years has accomplished more than simply building a bigger company. Expanding has given us more ways to connect.
We’re now connected to more work crews in more work zones. We’re investors in more pieces of heavy equipment, and we’re partners with more local subcontractors. We have more conversations with state and local transportation leaders. We have a seat in more conference rooms where decisions get made.
All these connections matter because they provide something important: More ways to share InfraStripe’s core values — to share our values in more places and with more people.
Sharing the Value of Safety
Of all the values we have to share, safety comes first. Every decision at InfraStripe begins and ends with a discussion about safety. It’s part of who we are.
The safety of our workers — along with the safety of the drivers, passengers, and pedestrians who travel through our work zones — matters more than any other factor we consider.
To see our commitment to safety in action, check out our recent investment in the Limntech LifeMark® system which is revolutionizing the way workers stripe highways while reducing the hazards to workers and motorists. We expect to invest more in safer, technology-based equipment in the coming years.
Sharing the Value of Quality Performance
Safety is central to who we are, but expanding has given us ways to share our other values, such as the value of performing quality work. InfraStripe partner companies exceed the standard specifications for building and improving roads.
Quality is a value in and of itself, but at the end of the day, quality work connects back to safety: The best road work allows drivers and passengers to travel more safely, and it reduces the need for future repairs which put more workers and travelers in danger.
Sharing the Value of People
Technology has become an important ally as we seek to create the safest possible working conditions. We even expect technology to replace humans behind the wheel in the coming decades.
But people will always be central to the business of road building — and people are the reason we build, repair, and stripe roads in the first place. InfraStripe’s growth into more markets has given us more chances to meet more people. More people means more perspectives on safety and quality.
Sharing the Value of Growth
As business leaders, we value growth for InfraStripe and all eight of our partner companies. We also value growth as individuals. We want each employee, at every InfraStripe partner, to grow in the profession while growing more satisfied with their role as essential transportation workers.
We value growth because growing helps us learn safer ways to perform quality work. And growing gives us more ways to share this knowledge with more people every day.
We’re proud to be growing bigger as a company, but we’re more proud to be growing better.
