NYCO Insulation

nyco"We're one of the first contractors that have signed up to be PRO-10 certified, largely at the request of a major client of ours who sees value in what PRO-10 brings to the table," said Rick Hansen, President of NYCO Insulation, a union contractor in Inver Grove Heights, Minn. "What really drew me to the program was the understanding that it's taking the labor-management approach to a whole new level. All the contractors and unions are involved in labor management programs and by including the owners/users/clients into the equation for their input, it's a game changer." Hansen also said. "With PRO-10, what it really comes down to is elevating everyone's game, so they have a better opportunity to stay employed longer at the jobs they value, for clients that value them."

We've been involved in the development stages of PRO-10 and feel it's one more way that all union craftspeople show their commitment to continually improving our industry."
