Foreman Brian James to the rescue!

August 28, 2014 | By | No Comments

Open letter to George Reed Inc:

This week as I was stuck at the Exit of Twain Harte, Ca.  The wait to proceed was over 20 minutes.  I turned off my car, and waited even longer. My car would not turn over again, and I had to back it up with no power steering 🙁 I got it partially  off the road into someone\’s driveway and feared that I would be hit by oncoming traffic.  I was ready to call AAA when along came this big white truck and a man jumped out.  Being a Senior Citizen at first I was frightened. It was your Foreman Brian James with a big smile on his face asking if I needed help.  Boy did I ever :).  Brian pulled his battery cables out of his truck and had me on my way in what seemed like seconds.  he then advised me to get to a Gas Station or repair shop. Which I did.  I asked Brian for a business card and I have emailed all of my friends in the area your email address as we are short of contractors up here with good work ethics. All I can say is what a wonderful man he was to assist me.

I can’t thank him enough, especially due to the fact that cars where going by at a fast rate to due to the repaving of 108.  I thank your company for having such a compassionate employee, who would stop to help a Senior in distress. Everybody on my email list has received your companies name and email for future contractors information.  I also posted it on Facebook to let people know there are still good  samaritans out there!

Sincerely,  Ardee J. Mucha

Boy Scouts get a hand from George Reed

August 1, 2014 | By | No Comments

George Reed was recently given the opportunity to be a part of a community service project for the Boy Scouts of America.

The Boy Scouts of America troop number 302 was recently presented with a task of upgrading the Student Court at Calaveras High School in San Andreas. The court is located between classrooms and is a major thoroughfare for the students. The area in question was all dirt and would get muddy in the rainy season. The Boy Scouts were asked to determine a way to clean up the area, making it more user friendly in inclement weather.

During the process, they did a cost estimate, comparing different methods such as concrete vs. crush rock. In the end, they determined that they could get a usable and cost effective method using crush rock for the area.  George Reed was able to donate the crush rock from our Clements Plant and Black Diamond Aggregates Trucking was able to donate the trucking. The project was a success and the students now have a much more user friendly Student Court. Thank you Boy Scouts of America troop number 302 for giving us the opportunity to help you achieve your goal.
