SIDNEY — “Ferguson Construction Company has been blessed with another successful year in 2015 and knowing that successful years do not happen by accident, it is a tribute to the many talented people we have at Ferguson,” said Martin “Mick” Given, president. “It is all about having a strong team and we are fortunate to have one of the best. Ferguson prides itself in staying focused on working safe, providing a top quality project as well as providing the best customer care in the construction industry.”

His report continues:

Ferguson continues to operate in four different geographic areas with offices located in Sidney, Dayton and Columbus, Ohio as well as Columbus, Indiana. In each of these four locations Ferguson continues to build new customer relationships along with maintaining our existing customer base. Here are a few highlights from each of our locations.

With manufacturing activity remaining stable in the area, the Sidney office had the following notable projects in 2015; BNSF, EMI, Nelson Packaging, P&R Specialty, Midway Products Group and Troy Sidney Body Carstar. 2016 forecasts suggest the activity level to be slightly stronger with more activity in the commercial and institutional sectors than previous years.

Our Dayton office landed industrial work at Fuyao, AIDA and Ahresty. Commercial business flourished with multiple projects at Liberty Center Mall for Steiner Properties, Goodwill Easter Seals and Vandalia Rental. A unique commercial project was for Emerson Climate Technologies – “The Helix” –constructed on the University of Dayton campus.

Our Columbus, Ohio office saw an increased year of volume and diversification on projects for companies such as Honda of America, Sonic Automotive, The City of Canal Winchester, Tigerpoly and Chapman Ford. Expectations are for continued growth in all industries in this region.

The Columbus, Indiana office has continued to grow our list of satisfied customers and are making strides towards our goal of becoming the premiere design-build general contractor in the area. We have continued to serve our core industrial customers including; Honda of Indiana, Sunright America, Toyota Industrial Equipment, GECOM, Valeo and Cummins. We have also secured projects with new customers; O&k American Corporation, Columbus Container and multiple Faurecia facilities.

Our Healthcare initiative has continued to progress with projects either completed or ongoing for the Ohio State University East Hospital, Wilson Health, Premier Health Partners, Wayne Health, Ohio Health and Good Samaritan Hospital.

Our Special Project groups, which are located in all four regions, continued to grow in 2015. This division of Ferguson handles miscellaneous projects including small additions, renovations of all types, in-plant mezzanines, concrete and carpentry. This team provides an essential service while developing and maintaining customer relationships.

As you can see from the activities outlined above, Ferguson has been quite active in our various regions working on a variety of project types. Because of our four geographic locations it is important for us to be able to work in various markets. We again are only able to do this because of the strong talents of our associates.

As we look into 2016 Ferguson Construction is in the process of implementing a few new growth initiatives as it relates to our Industrial, Commercial and Healthcare market segments. We will be adding some office staff and be strengthening our field resources.

We feel 2016 will be a good year for business opportunities and with Ferguson entering its 96th year in business we want to be sure to thank each and every one of our employees for helping us achieve our goals as well as all of our customers that have had the confidence and trust in Ferguson Construction which has allowed us to be a part of their construction team.
