Trending Toward Transportation
Banton continues to bid on transportation related projects and was recently awarded three separate contracts from the Connecticut Department of Transportation:
- Southington Maintenance Facility
- Five Facility Generator Installation
- Plainfield Maintenance Facility
In addition, Banton is currently completing a multi-year contract for Amtrak in Rensselaer, New York.
Lastly; in early June, Banton broke ground on a Metro-North wayside signal installation project extending along the New Haven Line from Greenwich to Norwalk. Banton has performed this type of work repeatedly for the railroad for the past ten years.
Focus on Safety
Banton's Safety Committee hosted a company-wide 'Safety Stand Down' at the Best Western Hotel & Conference Facility in North Haven on January 19, 2017. The half-day event was attended by Banton management and field employees and included presentations from Banton's insurance company as well as various project managers. Each employee left with an increased knowledge of Banton's commitment to safe working conditions as well as a new Banton shirt and safety glasses.
Employees Unite to Find a Cure
Banton served as the primary sponsor of the 'The Physical Freedom Festival,' a fundraising event held in Middletown, CT in September 2016. The event was organized to raise funds to be allocated toward ongoing research and clinical trials currently underway with the goal of finding a cure for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva. FOP is an extremely rare bone disorder that effects one of Banton's long-time employees. Banton sincerely thanks its many subcontractors, employees and business associates that attended and contributed to the overwhelming success of the event.
