“I truly enjoy the people I work with at Bouma Corporation and the many different people we work for. Every project/building you drive by has a different construction story that occurred behind the scenes. It is very rewarding to be part of the team that solves those day-to-day issues and in the end leaves behind a building that serves the customers’ needs.”
