Page 46 of 67 March 2019 • 45 FEATURE READY MIXED Michael Salo entered concrete production in 1974, handling and delivering block early on but soon switching to mixer truck driving under the same family-owned business. A commitment to job performance, coupled with a honing of skills along the way—under- scored by 20-plus years of accident-free driving since a minor fender bender—prompt this observation from GCC South Dakota General Manager Chad Henrich, P.E.: "Michael is experienced and trusted to champion many plant support functions. He brings a great attitude to work every day; working to not only fulfill customers' needs, but to improve GCC as a whole. When the challenging deliveries come in, it's an easy decision for both customer service and his plant manager. Michael gets the order and performs his duties safely and efficiently. Safe driving record, attention to maintenance detail, and will- ingness to keep a clean truck put him on top of the list when new trucks are received." "We have been operating a concrete construction business for over 50 years and understand the changes in the work force that have taken place," adds Aberdeen concrete contractor Jeff Sudlow, president of Wright & Sudlow Inc. "Mike has a long history of consistent performance when delivering ready mix to our jobsites. He will drive in a safe, professional manner, have the concrete at the desired slump and ready to discharge. He works well with our crews and has a great understanding of what is expected from him, his truck and the product he is delivering. I believe Mike is an outstanding truck driver." "Over the past 15 years, Michael Salo has done an outstanding job of ensuring that we get a timely and quality product with each load he delivers," affirms Jesse Bruns, chief operating officer of Reede Construction Inc., Aberdeen. "His positive attitude and willingness to help out whenever needed have not gone unnoticed by many of us at Reede Construction. Michael is among the best in his field and we are grateful that we have had an opportunity to work with him."
