CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF OUR FIELD EMPLOYEES - EMPLOYEES OF THE YEAR 2020
FROM THE DESK OF ANDY SCHLOSSER

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all their efforts throughout the year. The success of our company is built on the efforts of our employees. This past year has been one of the most challenging, yet we made it through 2020 successfully. Your dedication, loyalty, and commitment is greatly appreciated. It has been so reassuring to know that we can count on all of you regardless of what faces us. We offer our best wishes and happiness to you and your families as we celebrate the holidays. We believe with the recent achievements to fight COVID-19, that 2021 will be much easier for everyone. We know that 2021 will bring us all new challenges.

But having the best employees will make 2021 another great year.

With that said, W.M. Schlosser Company is proud to announce the Employees of the Year 2020.  We present to you our fearless field employees!  Showing up each and every day keeping our projects on track.  It’s been a tough 2020 and we appreciate you for showing up every day and keeping our jobs moving while staying safe!  Congratulations to you all.  Your 2020 Employee of the Year Sweatshirts are on order and will be distributed as soon as they are available.

I thought we would revisit our first tribute to our field people when Covid-19 first became known. Here’s the video if you’d like to watch it again   https://youtu.be/YaFra0Fp3As

Please post the Announcement on your job boards so that we can share the news with all of the guys and gals out in the field!

Congratulations everybody and a big thank for all you do from all of us working behind the scenes!

Happy Holidays everybody and we are looking forward to a happier, healthier and safer 2021!

Happy Holidays from the entire team at WM Schlosser!

As we can’t celebrate in person this year, we went all out and celebrated virtually with an Ugly Sweater Get Together.

Hat Day Friday Goes On

In the face of adversity this team of “Professionals?” was able to pull of not only getting almost 30 people on a conference call, but we shared some fun, laughs (mostly at ourselves) and a little video. Stay tuned next week and meet the animals of our employees!

Stay tuned and ya’ll be safe! Washing your hands and social distancing! We’ll be back to normal faster!

COVID-19 Notice

Due to the increased heightened restrictions by Governor Hogan and the State of Maryland, effective immediately only employees will be allowed to access our offices until further notices. Project sites that are still working will adhere to the same restrictions. Meetings will be held via video or audio conferencing. Any on-site meetings that must be held on-site will be held outside unless there are less than 5 people and we are able to keep the social distancing to 6’. We are doing this in an effort to protect our employees and their families. We know these are extreme measures but we are experiencing something that we’ve never experienced before.

Thanksgiving is all about giving back to the community at W.M. Schlosser

This year, W.M. Schlosser provided 55 entire Thanksgiving meals to the families and the staff at the Cecil Kirk Community Center. Our team will be painting the Cecil Kirk Community Center, to help out even further.

We also want to thank the Maryland Transit Administration and the team at the Kirk II project for their help this year! It was such a fulfilling experience!

Topping Out Ceremony at the Richmond International Airport

On Oct. 24, 2019 WM Schlosser Construction Company held a topping out ceremony at the Richmond International Airport. WMS is constructing an extension to Concourse A, which will give the Airport Authority six additional gates. WMS would like to thank the Capital Airport Authority, Gresham Smith and Partners (Architects), CP&Y (CM), Daniels & Associates (Structural Engineers), Chesapeake Bay Steel, Trinity Steel (Erectors) and all the other subcontractors that made this possible.

Topping Out Ceremony at the Kirk II Bus Transportation project in Baltimore

The last truss fabricated and erected by Kinsley Construction, Inc has been placed on the roof of the building and marks a milestone in phase II of the project. The new Bus Storage Facility will consist of parking for approximately 145 buses, fueling, vaulting, and bus wash services for single buses. What a great day for a ceremony with a lot of sunshine to celebrate such a big accomplishment.

Partners in Leadership - Accountability Workshop

This summer the W.M. Schlosser Company held our Annual Corporate Event and invited Partners in Leadership to present a workshop on Accountability. Andy Schlosser presented to all of us our Key Principles. It’s become the buzz around the office and we are all working diligently to incorporate them into our daily culture.
