Facilities Services – GRAM

Submitted by Zach Richmond, Sales Associate

Kudos to the team working at the Godfrey warehouse for GRAM (Grand River Aseptic Manufacturing) a pharmaceutical development and testing firm. The Facilities Services team was on site to remove and replace a six square foot concrete slab. The job required precision, cleanliness and environmental controls because of finished goods stored adjacent to the work area.

Here’s what the customer had to say:

“Your crew did an awesome job. Chris, Raul, CJ, and David really showed up to work. The atmosphere within the plastic sheeting enclosure changed drastically. Following the 2 hrs of saw-cutting, as Raul stepped out of the enclosure, he could feel the moisture in his socks.  As I stuck my head within the enclosure, my glasses fogged-up!  It was close to 100 degrees/100% humidity in there!!

My colleagues shared, “They are doing a surprisingly good job keeping things clean.” That said, I’m so glad you sent us the “A” team.  I’d work with those four fellows any time! I love to catch guys doing their job well – and, they did not disappoint. Thanks to Kent Companies for a job well done.”
