Holidays 2023

Posted December 19, 2023

From our family to yours, The Raymond Group wishes you joy this holiday season and a happy new year!

As we look back upon the past year, we find ourselves reflecting on those who have helped shape our business. Thank you to our customers for the opportunities offered and to our employees for your hard work and expertise. It’s been quite a year for us all!

We are excited to share some of our most meaningful moments of the past year…

Raymond became certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

While Raymond has been majority women-owned and operated since 2017, we are proud to be recognized as a WBE. As a family-owned business since 1936, Raymond is driven by a passion to serve our customers with quality products and exceptional service. Being certified as a women-owned business is an important part of what we stand for — diversity, integrity, and teamwork. As we move into 2024, we look forward to continuing a workplace culture where diverse perspectives and experiences are welcomed and respected. We are excited to work together to deliver quality that exceeds our clients’ expectations.

Raymond CEO Travis Winsor began a one-year term as Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry (AWCI) President. Raymond has been a member of the AWCI for 37 years, and we have been excited for the opportunity to help make AWCI an even more valuable resource for its members.

We stayed safe!

Raymond’s Southern California Arena project received Golden Gate recognition from Cal/OSHA. Golden Gate recognition highlights projects that have demonstrated a commitment to continuously improving the effectiveness of their safety and health management system.

The team was also awarded for managing an outstanding safety and health program. They were awarded Cal/VPP, the highest honor from Cal/OSHA.

Raymond and the AWCI conducted a three-day safety peer review at the Raymond Orange office. Raymond was put under the microscope through this review in which the association’s Safety Directors Committee looked at our safety culture and performance and provided feedback on our safety programs and initiatives.

Raymond’s San Diego region celebrated two years with no recordable incidents!

Thank you to our employees for staying safe in 2023 and helping create an environment where everyone is empowered to step in, speak up, and take action to keep their team and job site safe!
