No matter how big or how small, in the process of evaluating a contract for a new project the first question on the minds of Scheck Industries Senior Management Team is always, "Can it be built safely?"
The Tools of the Trade – Hard Hat, Safety Glasses, Fire Suit, Gloves,
Scheck Industries' founder and highly active CEO Richard Scheck has enjoyed racing since his own drag racing days in his 1958 Chevy Impala on the streets of Chicago.
Knowing Rich Scheck's love of motor sports, the senior management team devised a uniquely innovative message combining the thrill of racing while demonstrating the organization's commitment to Safety.
In 2006 after a long affiliation with NASCAR Legend Rusty Wallace, Scheck Industries signed Clint Bowyer as a corporate spokesperson. Scheck's involvement with NASCAR provides a highly visible platform for the Company to advance Safety as the most important element of its business for Team members and clients/partners. The long-term relationship with Clint Bowyer, who has become one of NASCARs brightest stars, also provides a forum to expand into new markets through networking with clients, other sponsors and brand-loyal racing fans.
As one of the safest contractors in the country, Scheck Industries is known as going above and beyond the norm by re-investing in its program and communicating the significance of its safety culture.
Bowyer's high regard for safety is easy to see as he is walks various Scheck project sites while speaking to the Trade Craft Teams, sometimes over a 1000 strong, about their daily safe work plans. Scheck utilizes its affiliation with NASCAR to effectively spread the message of safety to its workforce, clients and other stakeholders throughout the construction industry. Bowyer has spoken at numerous capital construction sites throughout the US on behalf of Scheck, including operations meetings and social events, stressing the utmost importance of safety.
