Ribbon Cutting at Bridge 37 over Cedar Creek


Nowata County District 2 Commissioner Doug Sonenburg presided over a ribbon cutting on September 22.for the newly constructed Bridge #37 over Cedar Creek. This bridge was the first ODOT-let project in northeastern Oklahoma to use steel I-beams from the I-40 Crosstown Bridge beam recycling project. The original bridge was 30 feet long and had steel I-beams, masonry abutments, and a timber deck. The contractor, RRY Services of Stillwater, OK, replaced the bridge with a 60 foot used steel I-beam bridge that will improve safety and accessibility for nearby landowners. Funding was provided by a combination of Surface Transportation Program (STP) Funds and Oklahoma’s County Improvements for Roads and Bridges (CIRB) Program.

Celebrating Employee Ownership

October is Employee Ownership Month across the nation, and GUY will be celebrating with about 10,000 other ESOPs! In fact, the State of Oklahoma will be celebrating with us, as Governor Fallin has declared October to be Employee Ownership Month.

GUY implemented an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) in 2013. “Because of the ESOP, GUY employees have a stake in how well the company performs," says GUY President John Blickensderfer. "We want to highlight the many benefits of employee ownership, and this is why we requested the proclamation."

At GUY, our month-long celebration will include opportunities for training and games, all culminating with our third annual ESOPtoberfest on Friday, October 28. On this day, we will have a community volunteer activity in the morning, a chili cook off and lunch, and a cornhole tournament. 


Bridge 12 over Unnamed Creek in Washington County is getting striped and ready for an October 11 ribbon cutting.

GUY Wins 2016 All-Star Team Award at Great Game of Business Conference

Four GUY employee-owners -- John Blickensderfer, Aaron Peck, Dottie Hagan, and Jack Reed -- traveled to Dallas in September for the Great Game of Business (GGOB) conference. GGOB is an open-book management system GUY uses to help employees learn to think and act like owners. As

they tried out some thrill rides and enjoyed Dallas cuisine, they also learned how to empower the GUY team to work smarter and more efficiently while having fun. In addition, John presented a leadership session at the conference, and the whole team was honored to meet GGOB founder Jack Stack and to accept GUY's 2016 All-Star Team Award. 


GUY Gives Back

On Friday October 28, GUY employees are teaming up with The Pack Shack to put together meals for those less fortunate in our area.  We are looking forward to spending a fun morning of team building while accomplishing something worthwhile for our community.  At $0.25 per meal, we are hoping to create as big of an impact as we can.  If you are interested in making a contribution to help us in this endeavor, please visit our fundraising site at Pure Charity to make a tax deductible donation. 


You can also give back by eating at the 48th and Yale Raising Cane's location on October 11. Mention Engineers in Action to help fund the team traveling to Bolivia next year. 

 Join the GUY team and become an employee-owner!
