Celebrating Through Giving
Boudreau Pipeline Corp. is marking its 20th anniversary by
raising a total of $20,000 for charity. Each quarter, the company is raising funds for a different organization. These are:
Susan G. Komen For The Cure; Working Wardrobes, a nonprofit
organization providing job interview clothing for veterans
and others; the Loma Linda Children's Hospital; and Donor's
Choose, an online crowdfunding site used by teachers to fund
The second-quarter giving project, benefitting Working
Wardrobes, included an open house event at the company's
Corona, Calif., headquarters. "A big part of what we do here
is to give back to the community," founder and president Alan
The company's recent projects include a $6 million contract for
infrastructure work at the 205-acre Goodman Commerce Center
in Eastvale, Calif. The retail and commercial park includes a 1
million square-foot Amazon.com fulfillment center. A second,
2.8-million square foot three-story fulfillment center for Amazon
is under construction. Boudreau Pipeline's work at the Goodman
Commerce Center started in 2015 and concluded earlier this year.
Recent examples of Boudreau Pipeline's residential work
include a $6 million infrastructure contract at a 1,400-lot master-planned community in Corona.
Training the Future
Boudreau Pipeline is looking toward the future, which could
include potential expansion to the Dallas region, where many of
its clients are based.
The company is making an effort to train staff to perform its
current and future projects. "There's a lot of work out there and
we lost a lot of tradesmen during the [Great Recession] who
haven't come back, so we have a labor issue," Boudreau says.
In January, the company hired a full-time training director
and purchased an excavator simulator. Plans are also underway
to develop a dedicated training facility and partner with local
schools and industry associations.
"Our thought is that we need to start growing our own pipe
layers, laborers and operators and invest in our own team," he
adds. "We are taking laborers with no pipeline experience and
training them on the job."
Trench Shoring Company congratulates Boudreau Pipeline on
20 years of unparalleled success. From the beginning Trench Shoring
Company and Boudreau Pipeline formed a partnership to deliver the
best quality and service on every project. Through the challenging and
successful times in our industry, Boudreau Pipeline and Trench Shoring
Company have worked closely to build our partnership and strengthen
We look forward to another 20 years with Boudreau Pipeline,
pushing our partnership toward new goals and an even higher level
