His experience consists of 20 years in the Heavy and Highway field. A graduate of Pennsylvania College of Technology in 1989, Harvey has been engaged in the site and roadway construction field in a managerial capacity.
At Unitex, his duties include managing personnel in the performance of the work in concert with the project manager. His duties include reviewing of cost estimates, schedules, and coordination of the work with the owners, crews, suppliers and required subcontractors.
Before Unitex, Steve served as a Senior Manager of Transportation for a large heavy/highway contractor in charge of all transportation for 6 operating divisions including repair shops. Prior to that, Steve served as Owner/President of a rental dump truck fleet that operated 30 triaxle dump trucks in the tri-state area.
Prior to that Chris worked in engineering and construction in the utility industry. From 1983 to 1995 he was involved in power plant construction, startup and operations. Today at Unitex, he works with commercial clients assisting them with all phases of their asphalt and concrete construction projects. He specializes in providing a high level of service to ensure individual needs of different clients are effectively met. This usually begins with site visits and meetings to assess project requirements, and is followed by developing a proposal which recommends cost effective solutions. It continues with working together with Unitex planning and field teams to ensure successful project completion and client satisfaction. Chris’s years of experience in our industry enable him to be an effective partner with you on all of the services we offer.
In 1988, Eric began performing his duties as a field superintendent for a Highway & Heavy Construction contractor. He has directly supervised site improvement and utility work for many multi-million dollar projects.
In addition to his extensive hands-on field experience, Eric has served as Dispatch Manager for a large excavating contractor. He coordinated the scheduling and movement of over 300 employees, support equipment and associated trucking. He later went on to manage the Concrete Department where he was engaged in the estimating and oversight of all aspects of concrete work including flatwork, walls, slip-form curbing and bridge piers.
Eric’s responsibilities with Unitex include estimating and project management. His primary focus is on scheduling, contract review, servicing accounts and field coordination in order to provide the best customer service.
After the 2017 paving season, Chance found he wanted to stay with Unitex and the construction industry. He began applying himself on the paving crew to garner the knowledge and experience necessary to create opportunities for himself within the company. In the four years Chance spent in the field, he operated the paver, screed, and skid-steers as well as other heavy equipment. He mastered the electronic systems on the paver and took a role in teaching co-workers about their proper usage. In the winter months he would spend time working with our Project Managers/Estimators so he could better apply his experience in the field and education to that department. In January 2021 Chance was brought in to work in the Project Managing/Estimating department full time.
He is excited to bring his work ethic and experience from the field to his new position and provide customers with accurate and timely service.
