Celebrating 32 Years of Dedication

 

Meet Vicky, a dedicated employee-owner of Ancon Construction who has been with the company for an impressive 32 years. Vicky’s journey at Ancon Construction began as an administrative assistant, answering phones and handling other clerical tasks. It was during this time that she had the opportunity to work alongside the company’s founder, Andy Frech. Two years into her role, Ancon Construction experienced growth and Vicky’s role evolved to accounts payable and receiving. Eventually, she became the AP/AR manager, a position she has held for the past 30 years.

“Vicky is a prime example of what it means to be a dedicated professional. Her skills and work ethic were pivotal in my decision to join Ancon Construction. It is individuals like Vicky who provide the foundation for a successful business yet often go unrecognized for their invaluable contributions. It is with utmost sincerity that I say, the presence of someone like Vicky is what sets truly great companies apart – and we are lucky to have her at Ancon,” shares Rhett Fisher, CFO at Ancon Construction.

“I have enjoyed working with the people at Ancon Construction over the past 32 years and am excited for the future of the company. I am particularly looking forward to the construction of a new corporate office, and am optimistic about the bright future ahead for Ancon Construction,” shares Vicky.

Thanks for your dedication, Vicky! Your positive attitude and willingness to adapt to change have made you an invaluable asset to the team. We are grateful you are part of the Ancon Construction family.

Where is Joseph Rodes Now?

Where is Joseph Rodes Now?

In the summer of 2021, Ancon Construction signed on and hired Joseph Rodes, a student from Goshen Community Schools. Here’s an update on how he is doing today:

 

Joseph is loving his career choice with Ancon Construction. He is currently in the second semester of the company’s ABC apprenticeship program, enjoying the hands-on training and safety certifications it offers.

He said, “I’ve really enjoyed the program, it has been great. It provides in-depth information that I need for my job and also offers certification in heavy equipment and safety, which helps me be better prepared and understand the equipment and materials used on job sites.” 

In the future, Joseph plans simultaneously earn his associate’s degree offered through the ABC program while maintaining his position at Ancon. He can choose to complete the program during or after his apprenticeship. He believes the most valuable asset he’s gained so far is learning how to be a leader and communicate more effectively with his colleagues. Ancon also offers excellent benefits such as 401k, paid mileage, and reimbursement for education and safety programs.

Joseph encourages students to explore their interests in trades and take classes provided through their school that interest them. He’s grateful for the opportunities Ancon has given him and we will continue to follow his journey.

South Bend Buffalo Wild Wing Lovers Rejoice!

South Bend Buffalo Wild Wing Lovers Rejoice!

June 21, 2019

South Bend, IN- Wing Lovers Rejoice!  Buffalo Wild Wings, located on Ireland Road on the south side of South Bend is getting a new look.  As part of the brand’s constant improvement to be the leader in design and customer experience, BW3’s will be updating both the exterior and interior of their south side location.  Ancon Construction, premiere Design-Build construction firm, is the proud builder of our regional BW3’s and the work will begin at the Ireland Road location in late June.

What can B-Dubs fans expect with the re-model?  A new exterior and interior look to match the franchise’s latest “Stadia” brand which will include all new interior seating arrangements, modifications to the bar and more TV’s designed to allow anyone seated to have a great view of the game.  Other updates include wall decor and other front of house updates.  Ancon recently completed a “Stadia” update for the Grape Road location and south side fans can expect to see a similar transformation starting soon.

Matthew VanSoest, Ancon Designer for the Project, commented, “The Ancon team is excited to be part of this image refresher for the south side Buffalo Wild Wings.  The updated imaging program will refresh both the interior and exterior branding – creating a positive and exciting experience for patrons.”

When asked about the re-brand concept Ryan Kring, Vice President of Business Development for Ancon Construction stated, “Most of the top brands in US re-brand every 7-8 years and Buffalo Wild Wings understands the value of giving their customers a fresh, yet familiar look at their locations.  It shows they know their customers and understand that their brand is constantly evolving.  The south side location in South Bend is a popular location and this refresh also shows Buffalo Wild Wings commitment to our community and to the south side.  We are the proud builders for Buffalo Wild Wings and look forward to being a part of keeping their brand fresh and exciting.”
