from the President
the book Corporate Ethics and Corporate Governance, Milton Friedman wrote
"There is one and only one social responsibility of business to use: its resources
and engage in activities designed to increase profit". Although we certainly
set the highest bar in corporate ethics, we subscribe to a different value system;
we believe our responsibility reaches far beyond dollars and cents. For thirty plus
years we have produced quality products in a timely and cost effective manner, while
providing jobs for members of the community and contributing to the funds that keep
our local, state and federal government up and running. The way we see it our company
is not just a money machine or a balance sheet, it is a human enterprise run by
caring people who understand the impact of the work we do in our community.
Not only has Eastern
General Contractors, Inc. had success in constructing various buildings--large and
small but we are also a flagship for the enhancement of local agencies, such as
the twenty-year maintenance program we run at Camp Atwater--a National Youth Leadership
Development Institute located in North Brookfield, MA. or constructing handicapped
ramps for local churches in the community, to name a few.
Contractors, Inc. will continue to find innovative ways to forge ahead in the direction
of larger building contracts and enhancing the community services we provide for
free. Our proudest goal will continue to be the success of our families and the
success of the families around us.
