DATE: Tuesday, August 6, 2024

TIME: 4:00 to 6:30 pm

LOCATION: 2121 W Wilden Ave, Goshen, IN 46528

Ancon Construction is delighted to invite you and the community to a significant milestone celebration — the ribbon-cutting ceremony for our new corporate office! The event will take place on Tuesday, August 6, from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. at 2121 W. Wilden Avenue in Goshen, Indiana.

The project, initiated in November 2023, converted the 24,000-square-foot former Furnitureland store into our new corporate office. Leveraging our expertise in revitalizing existing structures, we designed and renovated our new office space.

We are so excited to unveil our new corporate office, a testament to our nearly 50 years of excellence in the commercial construction industry. This event marks months of hard work and dedication, reflecting our commitment to our Employee-Owners and the Goshen community.

“This project has been so much more than just renovating a building,” reflects Doug VonGunten, Ancon President. “I have dreamt of this day for years! It represents who we are as Employee-Owners while showcasing Ancon’s true design-build culture. It also reflects the core of our day-to-day operations and will be a place where our entire team will be able to come together and thrive. We’re excited to transition into this transformed space, one that better reflects the work that we do while bringing new life to an empty building in our hometown of Goshen.”

Following the ribbon-cutting event, you are invited to tour the building. Light refreshments will be available.

Key Features of our New Corporate Office:

  • Utilization of natural daylight for a sustainable and inviting atmosphere
  •  Open and collaborative workspaces fostering creativity and teamwork
  • Diverse meeting areas catering to various work styles and needs
  • A central hub offering amenities such as a café, training room, outdoor patio, and lawn space, promoting employee well-being and engagement
  • A unique selection of materials and colors showcasing Ancon’s commitment to quality and innovation

Drew 

15-YEAR SERVICE AWARD RECOGNITION

Meet Employee-Owner, Drew. Drew was in Goshen High School’s Trade Program when he was recruited by an Ancon Construction employee and hired as a first-year carpenter apprentice. Soon after, Ancon enrolled Drew in a four-year apprenticeship program where he received his Associate Degree and journeyman’s card for carpentry. For the next three years, he was a carpenter in Ancon’s Building Service Department – a department that does smaller new construction projects, along with renovation and repairs for commercial businesses. Soon Drew was promoted to lead carpenter and a few years later, to superintendent. In the fall of 2019, he became a project manager, followed by a promotion to department director two years later.

“I knew that college wasn’t for me. Throughout the fifteen years I have been with Ancon, I have enjoyed meeting new people, clients and the simple fact that I can point out numerous projects we have built throughout the area. I’m looking forward to the years ahead!” One of his favorite projects as a superintendent was Potawatomi zoo’s main entrance build, where the project’s challenges motivated him.

Thank you for 15 years of service, dedication, and growth, Drew. We are thankful to have you on our team!

 

Don

25-YEAR SERVICE AWARD RECOGNITION

Meet Don, Ancon Construction’s Director of Operations and Safety Director, who has been with the company for over 25 years!

“When I first joined the company, I was looking for direction in my career. I had tried a few different jobs but hadn’t found my passion yet. That’s when I discovered that I enjoyed working with my hands and decided to give construction a try. 

The team at Ancon was welcoming and supportive, and the good wages and opportunities for advancement kept me motivated. I started out as a trash picker in 1997 and never could have imagined that I would rise through the ranks to become the Director of Operations. It just shows that with hard work and determination, anyone can achieve their goals,” he shares.

“As the Director of Operations and Safety Director, Don has one of the most challenging positions at Ancon. He is exceptional in this role, providing strong advocacy for our field employee-owners and an accessible bridge between the field staff and the office staff. We celebrate and thank you for your 25 years of service,“ shares Doug VonGunten, President of Ancon Construction.
