Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company Recognized by Bechtel for Outstanding Performance on Nuclear, Security and Environmental Projects


Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company was recognized for outstanding work on projects by Bechtel’s Nuclear, Security & Environmental global business unit at the Bechtel Supply Chain Recognition awards. The awards recognize subcontractors and suppliers who supported Bechtel‘s work in nuclear power, environmental clean-up, defense, and nuclear security and operations projects during 2016.

“We could not accomplish what we do without our subcontractors and suppliers,” said Barbara Rusinko, president of Bechtel’s Nuclear, Security & Environmental global business unit. “The work is challenging, highly technical, and is often first-of-a-kind.”

Jack Gilchrist, president of Gilchrist Metal Fabricating Company, said, “This work with Bechtel was the perfect opportunity” to demonstrate what differentiates Gilchrist from many other metal fabricators. “From the equipment we use to the expertise that drives it – we do everything we can to offer something more.” Gilchrist explained, “Our motivation is to see opportunities where others see problems. For us, this relationship was the ideal opportunity to demonstrate that.”

Companies were evaluated on multiple factors. They include: overall performance; the ability to deliver quality services/supplies on time; the ability to work collaboratively to meet milestones; and meeting or exceeding project expectations in aspects of safety, construction performance, technical expertise, and environmental compliance. Nominations were reviewed and approved by Bechtel procurement and project managers. Final recommendations were approved by senior leadership.
