Cianbro Team Achieves 1 Million Safe Hours at P&G Facility

AUBURN, ME — The Cianbro team working at the Procter & Gamble (P&G) facility in Auburn, Maine, recently reached a major milestone. At the end of 2022, Ernie Selberg, Cianbro Senior Project Manager, set forth a challenge to all team members and subcontractors on site to reach and surpass their goal of working 1 million safe hours with zero recordable injuries, and the team recently accomplished the task.

At a recent celebration, Selberg thanked the entire team. “You’ve each taken this to a whole new level, and we just appreciate all that each of you are doing as far as attention to safety,” he said.

There are currently two Cianbro teams working at the P&G facility. One team is constructing a new addition to increase manufacturing capacity. Another team is installing equipment within the new addition, providing major upgrades throughout the facility as well as providing emergency maintenance and repairs as needed. The two groups are coordinating their efforts so that the work goes as seamlessly as possible.

In 15 years of service, across three different continents, Gaurav Chaturvedi, P&G’s Plant Manager at the Auburn site, told the crowd that he had never seen such a track record. “You should be extremely proud about what you have been able to achieve by working safely," he said. "For us, in P&G, safety of our people and our partners is our No. 1 value, and I could not be more pleased than to have your partnership.”

Andi Vigue, President and CEO of The Cianbro Companies, thanked P&G for the opportunities they have provided and for the relationships that have been formed. He then went on to thank the team for all that they have done and all that they will continue to do. “The secret sauce has been working together, communicating and caring, and challenging ourselves to do better today than we did yesterday," he said. "And you’ve done it.”
