For more than 75 years, the mechanical contractor has served New England companies in the pharmaceutical, power, high tech, and food and beverage industries. In Shield's 17-year tenure at the company, he has overseen almost every aspect of the operations, from work acquisition through fabrication and work processes, while maintaining a project management role.
He noted, "We remain committed to being at the forefront of our industry's trends, focusing on quality, safety and leading-edge project management tools in order to ensure the success of our clients. And we are particularly proud of being able to do this in a work environment where each of our employees can personally grow and advance his or her career."
Greenwald said, "I'm excited for both DECCO and Kevin as he moves into the key leadership role for the organization. He's proven himself time and again to be the right person both to plot the path forward for DECCO and to take the company where it needs to go."
Shield's enthusiasm for maintaining DECCO's commitment to leading edge technology and capabilities is evidenced by the company's recently completed integration of BIM project execution and a large expansion of their fabrication facility. Under his leadership, DECCO has also expanded its client-focused embedded services group to a more varied and broader client base.
When you see Ed in the office or on site, please make him feel at home.

First and foremost is our OSHA recordable statistics that shows that DECCO has performed over 2.5 million work hours without a "lost time" incident. Yes, we have had some cuts, muscle strains and foreign objects in the eye which are all "recordable" incidents, but we have been successful working with our fellow partners so they could continue to be on the job at full wages.
Second is our achievement of winning the highest safety award offered by ABC National, the Platinum STEP (Safety Training and Evaluation Process) award, for over 10 years. This is significant because we are in competition with companies from across the country.
And finally where the rubber meets the road, DECCO's EMR (Experience Modifier Rate) is at an enviable .67 (1 being the industry average) which equates to significant savings in our workers compensation insurance premiums and allows us to be more competitive while bidding work.
All in all, safety starts at the top with management's commitment and continues throughout DECCO with everyone being responsible for his/her own safety. Congratulations on our collective achievements, but don't take a break from your continuous dedication to working safe.
