    July 1, 2011 marked the start of Garney’s latest expansion with the acquisition of Weaver General Construction. Weaver, based out of Denver, specializes in the construction of water and wastewater facilities with an emphasis in Construction Management (CM) based delivery. Acquiring Weaver will boost Garney’s CM capabilities while gaining access to several important customers with whom Weaver has strong relationships. The new entity will be known as Weaver Construction Management, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Garney Holding Co. In addition to Weaver’s CM strengths and client relationships, we were attracted to their culture, which closely mimics the strong culture we have here at Garney. The employees of Weaver are very excited about what they hear about Garney. Likewise, all Garney employee- owners welcome the Weaver folks into the Garney family. Wes Weaver, the founder and owner of the company, will remain on board for about three years,

    WEAVER CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT Garney Welcomes Newest Business Unit!

    prior to retiring, to give us plenty of time to transition his operations and customer relationships over to the new Weaver. This new business unit will create many opportunities for current Weaver and Garney employee-owners. “Build for the next project,” has always been the basis for Weaver’s vision and philosophy. This means that the Owner’s satisfaction is of the utmost importance. Owner satisfaction comes with providing the project on time, within budget, and with the highest quality. It is also an approach of a complete team effort with involvement from the Owner, Engineer, and all contractors on a job site. Weaver has been in business since 1951. Throughout the history of Weaver, numerous educational facilities, office buildings, hotels, factories, and industrial plants have been completed successfully and to the Owner’s complete satisfaction. The stability of our company is not only accented by its longevity, but also by the

    compatibility of its employees. Many of our key personnel have been working together for more than 25 years. Throughout its long history, Weaver has performed work for numerous repeat clients who substantiate the quality of work. They are a hometown company in the Denver area, and their great reputation is vital to continued work. We now have an opportunity to learn from Weaver’s strengths as well as show them the strengths of Garney, thereby enabling both organizations to continue leading the water and wastewater industry. Garney has a unique culture. It is a culture of high expectations and strong core values. Once an employee- owner becomes engrained in our culture, they become totally committed to our cause. We are fortunate to have acquired a dedicated, hard-working team of people at Weaver and we look forward to tackling new opportunities with our combined forces. ◊
