C.T. Brayton & Sons, Inc., of Escalon, Diede Construction, Inc., of Lodi, SJRRSS, Inc., of Stockton, and Menghetti Construction, Inc., of Modesto, were four of 25 construction companies lauded by the Associated Builders and Contractors of Northern California for implementing safety programs within their companies.

“We are proud to salute these and other amazing leaders within our industry who have gone above and beyond the call to ensure the safest, healthiest and best possible industry standards for there employees, customers and workplace,” said ABC NorCal President and CEO, Michele Daugherty. “Safety is paramount. These companies are committed to making the well-being of their workforce priority one as they grow and serve our communities.”
