California-based construction firm Ghilotti Bros., Inc. was recently presented with a Congressional Certificate of Recognition honoring its 100 years in business by U.S. Congressman Jared Huffman (D-Calif.)

In presenting the award, Congressman Huffman noted Ghilotti Bros. continued work as good stewards in the community through consistent support of local charities, as well as their efforts in building the local infrastructure and providing employment to Bay Area workers.

Noting the company’s $10 million in charitable donations to the community over the years, local Mayor Gary Phillips also honored the firm, proclaiming August 13 to be “Ghilotti, Bros. Inc Day.”

Mike Ghilotti, president and treasurer of Ghilotti Bros., expressed gratitude for the recognition saying, “GBI is extremely proud to receive these proclamations on our 100th anniversary acknowledging our commitment to our founder’s philosophy of doing good work, treating our employees with respect,  and giving back to the community in which you live and work.”
