Association names Contractor of the Year
A construction firm in the area is the new Michigan Contractor of the Year.
The American Subcontractors Association of Michigan, or ASAM, named Ada-based Dan Vos Construction Company the 2017-2018 Michigan Contractor of the Year, or MCOY, at the eighth-annual MCOY Awards tonight in Grand Rapids at Frederick Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.
Dan Vos is now a four-time MCOY winner.
"I just think it's amazing again that we won," said Dan Vos, president and CEO, Dan Vos Construction Company. "It really just speaks for our team and who we are and what we do every day. It's a great group of guys and gals. I can thank ASAM for the award and raising the bar for us."
The MCOY recognizes general contractors and construction managers with a track record of best practices, professionalism and collaboration within the subcontracting community.
“Dan Vos Construction should celebrate the fact that this award was, in reality, given to them by their trade contractors,” said Chris Weaver, president, ASAM. “They were voted as the very best by the same people they work with day in and day out.”
The first honorable mention award was presented to Grand Rapids-based Pioneer Construction.
The second honorable mention award was presented to Owen-Ames Kimball.
Debbie King, a project engineer at O-A-K, said the firm has "a great team."
Eight firms were nominated for the MCOY title.
The American Subcontractors Association of Michigan offers its members information, education, networking and legislative support.
The organization says it represents subcontractors to general contractors, lawmakers, the media and the public.
