ADCo’s Business/Community Development Philosophy
Since its inception, ADCo’s business philosophy has been to develop
its profitability and competitiveness by inventing, acquiring and
employing innovative construction technologies and systems.
Furthermore, ADCo leverages its competitive edge, attained through
its technologies, to promote maximum minority community
participation as well as cost savings benefits for its clients.
This community-oriented approach enhances ADCo’s ability to gain
market share in the public works contracting.
In the early 90’s, ADCo acquired and developed a patented pipe
repair technology that restores underground pipes to “better than
new” condition without digging and with minimal surface disruption.
Municipal utility agencies in five states realized multiple benefits
from this eco-friendly and cost-effective technology. Our
alternative technology typically resulted in 20% to 30% savings over
tradition rehabilitation technology and created dozens of new
construction industry jobs.
To date, ADCo recruits most of our workforce from under-employed
sectors of minority communities around the US. Employees learn
valuable trade skills and receive safety-training certifications to
increase their overall marketability throughout the construction
industry. When possible, ADCo can leverage technologies and project
agreements to allow workers full union membership and provide them
with health care, retirement savings plans, training programs and
