“Our Specialty Services business continues to perform extremely well with respect to bidding, winning, and executing on new projects,” stated Joe Cutillo, Sterling’s CEO.  “We were awarded a number of new jobs in the first quarter that enhanced our already sizeable backlog and deepened our already strong relationships with large, blue chip companies.  These project wins further demonstrate the strength of our Specialty Services business model and are indicative of the reputation we have developed with our key customers by delivering consistent value.  Looking ahead, we are very optimistic about the continued strength of our end markets through the balance of 2021.”
