At Unique Surety, we’re constantly surrounded by the people who are literally building the future of our great country. The people who, brick-by-brick, build upon the foundation laid out by our founding fathers. It is these contractors and construction workers who are realizing the dreams of these great men.
Thomas Edison once said, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Edison did not miss opportunity – and our entire country benefited.
On New Year’s Eve, 1880, the first electric lights illuminated Menlo Park in New Jersey as 3,000 people looked on in amazement, their faces lit up for the first time under the night’s sky.
But these lights had much bigger implications for our country than just streetlight charm. The invention of one man created an industry. Two years later, Edison opened America’s first power plant, bringing tremendous opportunity to the American people.
As Edison’s lights illuminated America, the future brightened for so many citizens who had been struggling to put food on the table for their families. Now their children had the opportunity to grow up in secure homes and one day enter the workforce as inspired adults.
The outlook for America radiated with possibility. The workforce is safer when it can emerge from darkness and see everything in the light of day, all the time! Great business leaders emerged, laying the foundation for the powerhouse America was becoming.
Thomas Edison’s life-altering invention lit the way as America was built into the thriving nation we are proud to call home. But the builders’ job is still not finished. There is always more opportunity to build, to make our cities stronger.
It is our construction contractors we turn to with a vision of the future. It is our job at Unique Surety to protect these innovators and help them secure their own futures for their employees and families by providing access to work projects requiring a financial guaranty in the form of a performance bond as a prerequisite to obtaining these valuable work contracts.
With a potential economic downturn on the horizon, we encourage all contractors to secure bonding today while their financial statements are at their strongest to win more jobs when the market becomes sparse.
