As we hit the one-year mark for the Covid 19 pandemic, we can all say that we have been through a lot in the past 12 months.  

We have learned what social distancing is and how to scale back important family holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving. This past July 4th, I celebrated in a way unlike any I have ever celebrated before.  

Although we have grown accustomed to wearing masks and attending virtual functions, hope is on the horizon. As the vaccine rolls out and the infection numbers continue to drop, we can see an end in sight to this pandemic.  

Now, though, is not the time to let our guards down or relax our resolve to be safe. We will continue to follow the guidelines that we receive from the State Health Department as we move closer to safer times ahead.  

Our team members have worked diligently to take care of you — our customers and clients — and this has resulted in long hours and much hard work. This winter has seen little to no slowdown in the work, and this year promises to be as busy as the last. We hope that your business is doing well and that you are finding success in your endeavors.  

We have made the largest capital expenditure purchases in our history, all in the context of providing better service to you and your subcontractors. We are fortunate to live in Utah where we have not been hit as hard economically as other states.  

Our goal is to help you be more successful and for the customers that use your products and services to be happy and satisfied. We appreciate our relationship with each of you and we take seriously the trust you place in us.  

Good luck to you this year and may we continue to work together to accomplish a win/win for all of us.
