Shaugn Evans has been part of the Mid-States Concrete Industries team for nine years, and has been a Field Foreman for about six of those years. Shaugn started as the third man on the crew and through hard work, paying attention to the details, and utilizing an “I can” attitude, he worked his way up to foreman.
While grouting can make for a long day, Shaugn knows it is something that just has to be done. What he enjoys most about the work is the actual installation. He particularly enjoys unusual installs, like double picks with two cranes.
The most important thing Shaugn has learned while working at Mid-States is to look out for the other guys on his team, as they look out for him. Shaugn continues to do the work he does to support his family, and because he truly enjoys doing something different every day. One thing people might be surprised to learn about Shaugn is that he is also a welder.
Adam Smith has been with Mid-States Concrete Industries for ten years and has been a Field Foreman for about seven years. Like Shaugn, he started as the third man on the crew, and attributes hard work, paying attention to the details, and possessing a can do attitude to helping him achieve foreman.
What Adam enjoys most about his work is working with the other crew members. The most important thing he has learned working at Mid-States is that hard work really does pay off.
Adam continues to do the work he does to support his family, plus he likes being outside - except when it is really cold, or really hot! Something people might be surprised to learn about Adam is he has been raising farm animals since he was a kid, and now his kids do it, too.
