DIG Honored with Two Awards
Devon Industrial Group (DIG), a joint-venture between Walbridge and Devon Contracting, was recently honored by both Toyota and Ford Motor Company with awards recognizing superior performance.
In June, Toyota presented David Burnley, Sr., CEO of DIG, with its Superior Performance Award for Construction, Machinery & Equipment. DIG recently completed a major project for Toyota in York Township, Mich. In 2016, the project team logged 180,000 man hours with zero safety incidents.
In May, Ford recognized DIG as a top global supplier at the automaker’s 19th annual World Excellence Awards ceremony.
Ford recognized DIG for demonstrating superior quality, delivery and cost performance throughout 2016.
“My heartfelt gratitude is extended to the entire staff of Devon Industrial Group for your steadfast and unwavering support, your commitment to exceeding our customers’ expectations and your dedication to continued success,” Burnley said following the Ford award ceremony.
DIG and Walbridge first teamed on projects back in the 1990s with encouragement from Ford. The automaker wanted to see more involvement in its construction projects by minority business enterprise (MBE) companies. Walbridge served as mentor and DIG, an MBE, developed the entrepreneurial skills and business acumen to become a sizeable construction firm in its own right.
