PC Construction Company was recently honored with the Deane C. Davis Outstanding Business of the Year Award. Presented by Governor Shumlin at the opening ceremonies of the Vermont Chamber of Commerce Business and Industry EXPO, the annual award honors a Vermont business that shows an outstanding history of sustained growth while displaying an acute awareness of what makes Vermont unique. Named for the former governor of Vermont, the award was created 26 years ago by Vermont Business Magazine and the Vermont Chamber of Commerce to recognize and honor the state’s best companies.
The South Burlington based company also was also recently recognized for their charitable giving by the United Way of Northwest Vermont with the Campaign of the Year Award. It was given in recognition of a campaign that engaged a diverse group of employees who surpassed their campaign goal and raised more than $55,000 for the community. In his awards presentation in late May, United Way Director of Resource Development John Cronin said, “PC Construction demonstrated to us a willingness to achieve above and beyond in ways that are remarkable and inspiring. They hosted a powerful campaign infused with the essence of the United Way mission – to bring people together to accomplish a shared goal.”
Founded by the Pizzagalli family in 1958 with a modest $25,000 in sales the first year, PC Construction has grown into a $500,000,000 business and has become a 100 percent employee owned enterprise employing over 1,100 employee-owners.
