“We are so appreciative of the support from Local 1005. We had a very successful holiday season, and it could not have been done without their generosity…and in some cases, we were able to give out up to five toys per child. It’s because of generous people like those in Local 1005 that we are able to bring happiness to kids and families on Christmas day.”

Reggie Hess / Marine Corps League District 1 Vice Commandant

"The common construction wage provides good paying jobs in my district of the state. In turn, money spent by workers earning the common construction wage generates sales revenue locally and provides sales tax to the state’s general fund." 

Lloyd Arnold / Indiana Sate Representative Lloyd Arnold (R, District 74)

"All employees of Solid Platforms are required to obtain the UBC scaffolding certification in addition to specific scaffold qualifications mandated by our industry. Due to the variety and complexity of the facilities we work in, it’s imperative that these individuals are of the highest safety awareness and exceptional competence. The partnership we’ve had the past 25 years with IKORCC has really been the key to our success and pathway into our collective futures. Our professional attitudes and proactive work integrity together has proven to be the successful business choice, even in the toughest economic environments.”
