The nine-week training program is designed to increase the pool of qualified minority candidates for construction jobs in Illinois by strengthening job readiness and life skills and preparing for industry-required testing that is often a prerequisite for employment.

A training session
This week the Mueller company trained our Midwest Gas Division on performing tapping and stopping on gas lines. Tapping and stopping is a complex process performed when connecting new gas mains to existing facilities. This training ensures the safety of our employees when performing these tasks and safely controlling the flow of gas in a pipeline.

The Gas department continues to offer INTREN employees this and other training classes to ensure we maintain a safe and high-performing work force to meet our customers' growing needs.
Green Hat GraduationJerry Cartwright and Jonathan Lagemann with the Midwest Region Underground Electric department completed the Green Hard Hat Program last week. Thanks to Foreman Will Folk and his crew for helping train and develop our new workforce.
Our Gas group, working out of Middle River, MD, celebrated the graduation of three employees recently.  Each one is relatively new to INTREN, but all crews have taken a proactive approach to mentorship and making sure that all employees receive the necessary guidance in order to work safely.

Intren and Miller Construction in 2018
June marks the one-year anniversary of joining forces with Miller Construction Company and we couldn't be prouder to call this amazing team part of the INTREN family.

When we first met Miller CEO Christina Ernst, we were impressed that they were a third-generation full-service electrical contracting company and a leading WBE. However, as we learned more about the company her grandfather built, we realized that we valued the same culture, which centered upon a deep customer focus, an ongoing commitment to safety, and a true caring for our employees and the communities we serve. It was because of these shared values that we knew we had found a true partner.

We also had the honor of welcoming Christina Ernst to the INTREN Board of Directors, which is still one of the few women-controlled boards in the utility contractor space. Her guidance and contribution are invaluable, and reinforces what founder Loretta Rosenmayer has always said, "companies do well in the marketplace by doing good."

Even though each one of the Miller employees now feel like family, we will continue to honor the Miller legacy and the three generations that built that extraordinary company.
