Episode XII of our Leadership series. We want you to get to know our team. On Facebook we run an album called “Faces & Places of AH Harris” and we also feature snapshots of our employees and job sites on our Instagram account. But we want to give some insights into who our company leaders are, too! We share what their background is and include some ‘personal touch’ beyond the corporate resumes you find on LinkedIn.
This time I have the great pleasure of interviewing one of our HarMac Rebar leaders. For over 30 years HarMac Rebar and Steel Corporation has been providing services and products to the Northeast. HarMac fabricates reinforcing steel for commercial, industrial, high rise buildings, heavy construction infrastructure projects and complex precast and tilt-up applications. Everyone, meet HarMac's GM Amos Maillett!
Amos! Great catching up this morning in beautiful Maine! What is your role with the company, what are you responsible for here at HarMac?
Morning Martin. As General Manager of HarMac Rebar, I am responsible for overseeing the day to day operations and Sales for both of our locations, this one here Fryeburg, ME - our headquarters - and our second facility down in Sayreville, NJ.
How long have you been with the organization?
HarMac, previously known as MacFarlane Steel, was founded over 30 years ago as a family business, so I have been involved with the company since I was a kid. I have worked in almost every position in the shop over the last 20 plus years. This yard here is my home!
So its safe to say you have always worked in the construction supply sector then and didn't change industries during your career.
Correct - Besides mowing lawns and delivering pizza back in High School, Rebar is all I've ever done!
In the early 2000s your business joined forces with Harris Construction Supplies. What does ‘Harris Pride’ mean to you?
Hard work and integrity.
Alright, short and sweet. What is the one thing you want our customers to know?
Everyone at HarMac realizes what our company is built on; and that’s always putting our customers needs first! Our goal is to continue our growth and diversification, providing innovative solutions and services to our customers while maintaining the trust and confidence of our customers. Our experienced staff pays strong attention to detail and has a working knowledge unsurpassed in the industry, allowing us to provide problem solving solutions and engineering recommendations.
And do you have a piece of advice for current and/or prospect employees?
To our current and past employees - thank you for your hard work and dedication! Any prospective employees - come check us out if you’re looking for an honest company with opportunity for advancement. Our philosophy is to treat our customers fairly, to deliver a quality product in a timely manner and to be more than a supplier. If that sounds like you, I want to hear from you.
Well said. Anything else you would want to share today?
Just really want to thank all of our long time, loyal customers that have trusted HarMac with their reinforcing needs over the years. If you want to get in touch or check us out, make sure visit us online at www.harmacrebar.com
Perfect, thanks so much for your time, Amos. One last question, who do you nominate for our next leadership spotlight?
Sure. I’d like to nominate David Calicchia, New York Region’s Vice President.
You got it, I'll let Dave know! Thanks again and say hi to your team.
