Sundt President & CEO Mike Hoover was recently interviewed by National Public Radio about one of our country’s hottest topics: a proposed border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
We have done similar work, building around 100 miles of fencing along the Arizona and California borders with Mexico in the mid-2000s. The work was tough. The story reports that in one stretch near Yuma, Arizona, the soil was so soft we had to tow equipment in with bulldozers. In some places, we had to blast through solid rock to set fence panels. Summertime work was done in conditions regularly topping 100 degrees.
Mike said the company would be interested in working on border projects if they move forward.
