Deck for a Soldier Ribbon Cutting in Mine Hill, NJ
NADRA
The ribbon cutting ceremony went wonderfully. It was quite an emotional time. The soldier is such a great man and is so very appreciate of this gift that we have given him. As he said "This is the first time in the past 40 years since I got back from Vietnam that I have felt appreciated." Most of us who have spent any time on this build have certainly gained a great friend in this soldier.

2014 resolution: Make more money and lose less
By Scott Wolfe
It's the time of the year for construction and materials companies to step back from the daily grind and evaluate the prior year's successes and failures, and to plan for the year ahead. Through this process, it's inevitable that you'll pursue your accounts receivable aging report and feel your stomach churn about the money you earned but couldn't collect.
