Our People

From the start, Larson has recognized that providing a safe and rewarding livelihood for co-workers will be repaid by years of loyal, dedicated service. Many of our people have been with us for more than 30 years—one for over 60 years. Through their longevity and loyalty, our people make a big difference in setting Larson apart. Here are a few we’d like you to meet…
