  • For those who have seen this new facility, the response has generally been the same: 'Wow!' Libbey will be moving into a first class facility.

    Bob Moore Construction is an impressive company, Anyone who has dealt with the construction of such a facility knows how tough a job it can be. They made it look easy and, of course, it's not. They ran a tight ship, holding their own crews and subcontractors to a high standard. Their professionalism goes much more than skin deep; it's part of their culture. Phillip Bell, Ed McGuire and Site Superintendent Stacy Langston are all exceptional individuals.
