Robinson Construction prides itself in giving back to our community, especially the children. Recently we were approached by Valle Pre-Kindergarten in their need for Chromebooks in the classroom. We were happy to help them reach their goal. According to Lead Pre-Kindergarten teacher, Julie Herzog, “Our ability to offer technology will allow the children a developmentally appropriate way to use technology. The children are able to explore new worlds, make believe and actively engage in fun and challenging activities.”

It’s no secret that the construction industry is dealing with a skilled labor shortage as many skilled craftspeople have dropped out of the industry and don’t plan to return. Additionally, an entire generation of younger workers are no longer even considering construction as a viable career option as parents are increasingly steering graduates to four-year colleges and white-collar careers. Now, as older workers are retiring, there simply isn’t anyone ready to take their spots. On average, Robinson Construction employs more than 300 skilled craftspeople who complete projects all over the United States. In this article by Mike Holmes Jr., he discusses how “the trades are a great, stable career” and how without the skilled trades, we wouldn’t have the rest of the careers we value so highly. #rccoemployees #EndSkilledTradesStigma #skilledtrades #construction

What do you do when you can’t reach your target location with a crane? Easy, call in a helicopter! With the help of our subcontractors, Erickson Incorporated and S.M. Lawrence Company , we recently replaced 5 - 15,000 pound HVAC units on a project at the Frito-Lay plant in Jonesboro, Arkansas. We had a 48-hour window to set the units and get them running for Frito-Lay, so they could maintain production of their delicious chips and snacks!

The Robinson Construction Charitable Fund recently issued grants totaling just over $15,000 to three area organizations. Lucas & Friends Backyard Adventures Playground, Safe Families for Children-Southeast Missouri, and Dream Factory of Southeast Missouri each received a grant for just over $5,000. The grant funds were raised at the 2020 Robinson Construction benefit golf tournament, Chip in for Charity. The idea behind Chip in for Charity is to raise money and awareness for groups and charities that are near and dear to Robinson Construction and our community. According to Paul Findlay, president of Robinson Construction, “We are especially grateful for the generosity of our customers and trade and business partners. It is because of them that we were able to make this second tournament such a great success in such a challenging year.” Mark your calendars for the next Chip in for Charity tournament on Monday, September 27, 2021.
