What People Are Saying
“I just wanted to express my gratitude for your preparedness during the comprehensive safety audit we conducted in August.
Holly Construction’s performance was, by far, the best initial audit we have conducted since implementing the program two years ago.
Your programs were very solid and you appear to be taking an upfront and proactive role in safety performance. I applaud you and your company for the dedication you place on safety; the effort shows and is noticed by Marathon. In addition, thank you for the quick response to the few corrective actions that were assigned. I fully expect the audit to be formally closed very soon.”
— Nick Allshouse, HESS Professional, Marathon Petroleum Co.
“I became very familiar with Holly Construction beginning in 1989 when I was the Refinery Manager at Marathon’s 100,000 B/D Detroit Refinery. Holly’s work ethic and safety performance were outstanding.
Their attention to schedule and the details of the work were better than anything I had ever seen. (After completing my career with Marathon in 2008 this is still the case.)
Their productivity is normally 2-3 times better than any of their competition. Holly has a strong leadership team that believes in treating people/employee with respect and dignity while expecting outstanding performance for its clients. I would never hesitate in recommending Holly Construction as they are truly an outstanding company.”
— Larry Echelberger (Retired), Sr. VP Refining & Major Projects, Marathon Petroleum Co.
“Holly Construction is an industrial contractor with a “World Class” safety program. Holly has developed and implemented their safety program for the work they perform as contractors working within large industrial facilities (refineries, steel mills, etc).
Their program includes frequent and regular safety and health inspections performed by a full time designated safety professional. Holly Construction’s management instructs all of their employees in the recognition and avoidance of unsafe conditions.
Job safety and health “Toolbox Talks” are conducted at the beginning of each work day by the crew foreman and job hazard analyses are prepared for job tasks and reviewed with the workers. Holly has maintained an outstanding safety track record during our alliance.”
— Jim Stanley, President of FDR Safety, Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA
“Larry I would like to thank you for the exceptional work your company provided on the three projects that where just completed in Michigan. Our Wayne to Flint 203 System Mainline Hydro Test which you provided crews at both stations. The fabrication and installation of a new Scraper Trap at our Detroit Station for our 202 system from Detroit to Dearborn Terminals where we completed a nitrogen purge and tie-in of the system in one day.
Your employees exhibited an exceptional work ethic during these projects. Throughout the years your company and its employees have always been there at a moments notice. How they perform and the service they provide is what makes Holly Construction special. These projects could not have been completed without the full efforts of you and your employees. Thank you not only for the services you provided but for the employees who perform these services. We at Buckeye appreciate them very much.”
— Mr. Chris Tricoff Jr., Supervisor Field Operations, Buckeye Pipe Line Company
