ARCO celebrated its 24th anniversary by hosting an ice cream social for its associates, serving several flavors of local favorite Ices Plain and Fancyâ€™s nitro-ice cream. Since the companyâ€™s founding in 1992 the ARCO enterprise has grown to include offices in 11 major markets nationwide.
The celebration comes on the heels of two awards given to ARCO for its workplace culture, benefits program and associate satisfaction. In February, the Saint Louis Business Journal announced its â€˜Best Places to Workâ€™ awards, and recognized ARCO in its â€˜medium-sized businessâ€™ category. In June, ARCO was recognized with a similar award by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, receiving a â€˜Top Workplacesâ€™ distinction for the fourth year in a row. ARCO Constructionâ€™s sister companies in several other markets received similar distinctions this year as well, namely Tampa, Philadelphia and Chicago.
