Whiting-Turner Contracting: All About Good Reputation
Reputation counts. When you do good work word gets around. When you do bad work word gets around even faster.
Whiting-Turner Contracting was founded by G.W.C. Whiting and LeBaron Turner who were classmates at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The two believed that integrity, engineering talent, and a dedication to their customers would make them stand out from the competition. It certainly has in fact the reputation that this company built has been passing the test of time. Whiting and Turner founded the company in 1909. It has now been in business for over a century.
