Cianbro Corporation has stepped up to the plate to support America’s Heroes by partnering with HireVeterans.com to employ America’s war veterans.
Cianbro is not alone. More and more businesses today are actively choosing war veterans over other candidates and it makes sense: War Veterans are a smart choice in today’s competitive job market because they have the character, skills and training to meet the toughest challenges employers face.
Specifically in the construction market veterans are physically honed and are skilled problem-solvers. They also have the technical skills needed to get the job done and work efficiently within a team and understand and respect the importance of following technical and safety procedures.
Cianbro Corporation is one of the East Coast’s largest civil and heavy industrial construction companies. Cianbro is employee-owned and recognized nationally for its safety and health programs. Headquartered in Pittsfield, Maine, Cianbro serves the eastern seaboard from offices in Baltimore, Maryland; Bloomfield, Connecticut; and Portland, Maine. Cianbro was founded in 1949 by Cianchette brothers Carl, Ken, Bud, and Chuck, and is one of the most diversified construction companies in the nation with gross annual sales in excess of $400 million and over 2,100 team members throughout the eastern United States.
Cianbro president, Pete Vigue says, “Teamwork, commitment, and personal sacrifice are what differentiate our people and this company from our competitors. It is what allows Cianbro to do some pretty extraordinary things in the construction and construction services industries.
Our team puts its can-do spirit to work every day — coming up with innovative and creative solutions for our customers’ needs — on a wide variety of construction, fabrication and coating, and data services projects.”

ianbro’s competency is remarkable.

Joe Viau, project engineer for Orion Power states, “Cianbro’s riggers, operators, fitters, welders and crafts people were well trained and dedicated. Their ability to safely work as an efficient team in tough conditions was appreciated by Orion from an owner’s viewpoint.”
In the commercial and institutional field speed to market is critical. Cianbro constructs high-quality facilities on-time and with minimal disruption to operations and minimum demand on operating staff. Contractually, Cianbro works with commercial and retail clients as either their construction manager or general contractor. In both cases, their ability to manage multiple trades in confined spaces and to self-perform all tasks enable them to guarantee a finished product completed on time.
