WINCHESTER, Va. —  Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. has been named to the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) “Top Performers” list.

ABC’s Top Performers list — the only rankings of its kind — recognizes contractors’ achievements in safety, quality, inclusion, diversity and equity, and project excellence.

“Congratulations to Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc. for investing in its people, and delivering quality results to its clients,” said Michael Bellaman, President of ABC.

To be considered for recognition, contractors had to meet world-class safety performance by achieving Gold status or higher in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System in 2021. These top-performing contractors are more than six times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average, according to ABC’s Safety Performance Report. Shockey achieved Platinum Status in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System.

“It’s a special honor to be ranked among the nation’s Top Performers by ABC; Shockey has always been proud of how we conduct our business, the quality of the work we deliver to our clients, our safety performance, and the investment we put into our employees,” said Shockey President Jeff Boehm.
