Trade Partners

We mean it when we call it a partnership.

We are pleased to announce Abbott’s new and improved Prequalification Process.

Dear Trade Partners,

We would like to introduce our new Prequalification Process, which is being adopted in partnership with Layton Construction’s prequalification team to provide the following:

  • A mechanism to match both the financial and safety ability of our trade partners to the correct project opportunities, while providing a path for deliberate successful outcomes.
  • An increased level of sophistication to meet our clients’ needs with regard to fiduciary and safety risk evaluation and management.
  • An opportunity to grow with us!

As Abbott’s business scales and project types expand, we want to ensure the same opportunity for all our trade partners across a regional and national platform.

This Prequalification Process will evaluate applicants on their financial and safety responses, which once submitted, remain fully confidential and only accessible to the Abbott & Layton prequalification team.

The following standard industry metrics are analyzed:

  • OSHA Citations
  • Incident Rate
  • Safety Survey
  • EMR

Our accounting team will review:

  • Financial Statements
  • Balance Sheet
  • Income Statement/Profit Loss Statement
  • Bonding/Surety Letter (if relationship exists)
  • Litigation Survey

Abbott has come a long way in the last 40 years, and the 2020 merger with STO Building Group (STOBG) has and will continue to provide new and exciting opportunities across numerous market sectors with diverse clientele.

Whether you desire a local or expanded geographic operation, we want nothing less than the successful partnerships that have been inherent between our organizations thus far, and this next step in our risk management evolution is designed to ensure that continues.

Steve Jarvis, Michael Sloane, Doug Klein, & Larry Lantero
Regional Vice Presidents
