The idea was simple, to create a family of companies in the heavy-side, construction materials industry that were interdependent; thus, taking advantage of economies of scale and local knowledge simultaneously. By teaming up with established local businesses, Summit Materials creates value, providing access to growth capital, implementing best practices, and offering safe place to work while striving to exceed our environmental and social responsibilities. This vision has helped Summit grow from a single office to more than 400 locations.
Summit/Cornejo is a great company to work for. I have been able to build a great career here because of the opportunities I have been given. I have seen coworkers move up at Cornejo or even leave Cornejo and work directly for corporate.
Personally, I have had the opportunity to dive into identifying and sharing the many ways that safety best practices not only apply to life outside of work but benefit it as well. Thinking and acting safely increases efficiency and quality of life.
Summit’s mission is to provide the foundation to connect our communities today and build a better tomorrow.
Summit’s vision is to be the most socially responsible, integrated construction materials solution provider, collaborating with stakeholders to deliver differentiated innovations and solve our customers’ challenges.
