Young's Company History
Young’s effectively accomplishes so many diverse tasks by capitalizing on the experience of our employees, many of whom have been with the company for well over 10 years. Young’s personnel is backed with an extensive list of over 800 company owned and operated pieces of equipment. In total Young’s owns, operates and maintains a fleet of environmental, industrial and construction equipment valued and approximately $15 million (new value). Having all the necessary equipment and personnel in-house gives Young’s a competitive cost advantage while providing the ability to finish the project on or before the completion date.
A key component to Young’s ability to provide the best client service possible is low employee turnover. Young’s Corporate Officers have all been with the company since starting operations in 1989. When analyzing years of service Young’s management staff (excluding officers), the average seniority is over 12 years (ranging form a low of 5 years to a high of 18 years of service). Overall, the average number of years that all employees have worked at Young’s is approximately 8 years.
