Since 1965, Penhall Company’s Canadian division, The Graff Company ULC. has enjoyed sustained growth and development. The company attributes this growth to the loyalty and dedication demonstrated by each member of Team Graff. As Graff looks to the future they are committed to continuously investing in their people and equipment to offer clients superior service while maintaining the position as an industry leader. The “Best of the Best” is a traditional monthly award that is given to The Graff Company’s field employee who goes above and beyond the call of duty. The recipient of the award receives recognition as well as a “Best of the Best” certificate.

2014 proved to an overwhelmingly successful year filled with many qualified nominees for the "Best of the Best" award. Numerous submissions of nominations flooded management doors- further proving that Team Graff is saturated with exemplary employees. A total of ten awards were presented ( two employees are no longer with the company) for the year 2014. A fine example of the recipients is Mike Cox, a 17 year concrete cutting veteran who has spent most of his career at The Graff Company as a specialist for cutting down bridges- one may even say he is Graff’s expert. When asked by The Graff Company’s Operations Manager, Stephen Russell why Mike Cox is the person of choice when it comes to bridge work his upbeat response was, “Mike has met or exceeded expectations on every bridge job he has been assigned to. He is always The Graff Company’s first choice to complete this type of work.”

To build on Stephen Russell’s thoughts and further explain Cox’s expertise let us give insight to an award worthy situation: while on a job in Atikokan, Canada for Teranorth, a valued customer of The Graff Company, Mike experienced challenges with his equipment that required immediate attention in order to complete the work and meet the needs of The Graff Company’s customer. With more than an 18-hour drive to The Graff Company’s offices and repair shop from Atikokan, returning to the shop to have the equipment repaired was not an option. At that point there was no immediate solution to get the saw up and running. Mike’s years of experience with concrete cutting equipment enabled him to complete the repair on-site without incident and in a timely manner. “This is one of many examples of Mr. Cox going above and beyond the call of duty to get the work done and meet the customer’s needs” says Mr. Russell.

Fundamental core values that The Graff Company is dedicated and devoted to all remain consistent and apparent because of the tremendous people who make up The Graff team. With stories much like Mr. Cox, other outstanding employees are presented monthly with the “Best of the Best” award from Graff. Graff’s continuous commitment to ongoing growth and development of each team member drives the success of providing clients with dedicated, personalized customer service, and creating safe environments. Hands down The Graff Company’s end goal is to always exceed the clients’ expectations through teamwork, innovative technology, and diversified service- with “Best of the Best” recipients making up what Team Graff is, that end goal will always be exceeded!

We also wanted to excitedly share and congratulate all the recipients of the “Best of the Best” award for the year 2014:

Rob Paparocki, Steve Farewell, Ros Perun, Norm Kightley, Matt Cornelius, Ryan MacDonald, Steve Matassa, Nathan Rogers,

And to close out 2014, on December 30 Teagan MacLean received the final award of the year.
