WHAT OUR PARTNERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US
“Our partnership with the Alliance has opened up many new opportunities allowing us to qualify for many projects we were unable to work on previously. The resin flooring industry has always been classified as a specialty trade. It was very difficult (if not impossible) to join and meet all the criteria for the available apprentice programs offered by New York State. Your unique program has allowed us to meet all the required criteria thus opening up various opportunities for projects. We look forward to working with the Alliance for many years to come.”
“Javen Construction is proud to have partnered with the Merit Apprenticeship Alliance from its inception. We are pleased to be able to offer training opportunities for the industry’s future workforce through the Alliance while enhancing our ability to contract with public agencies. The apprentices have proven to be responsible, eager to learn, and a productive part of our labor force. Javen looks forward to a long and successful relationship with the Alliance.”
“Meyer Contracting Corp, as a charter member of the Merit Apprenticeship Alliance, is firmly committed to promoting careers in construction through apprenticeship. The Alliance has provided us the opportunity to integrate apprenticeship into our corporate training plan, increase business development opportunities and meet owner bidding requirements. As the company looks to the future, we continue to focus on our short-term goals: to provide our customers with a positive construction experience and to continue to invest in customer relations and long range marketing.Our vision for the future includes the Merit Apprenticeship Alliance as a key partner in developing our skilled workforce. Meyer Contracting believes that its success is attributed to our highly skilled professionals’ unique ability to deliver quality projects on time and within budget.”
