2019_All_-_Employee_meetingIn 1871, our company formed through neighbors helping neighbors.

Today, we keep that same spirit alive by reinvesting our time, treasure, and talent back into our communities in many ways such as taking part in food drives or providing aid to local businesses, families, and organizations.  More importantly, BCT employees volunteer their personal time to help those in need.  In 2019 alone, our employees volunteered at 58 organizations equating to over 1,500 hours.
