  • Fabrication at our 50,000 square foot facility

MAP has always been a family-owned business and continues to be today under the ownership of Roger Griffin and Kurt Swenson.  With offices in Sanford, Michigan and Beulah, North Dakota, MAP is well positioned to serve a broad range of industries across the United States.

At MAP, our daily focus is the relentless pursuit of finding the right solutions for our customers and doing the work the right way.

Safety

MAP’s commitment to working safely every day allows us the opportunity to work with clients who demand the highest safety standards. Providing a secure workplace is a primary focus because we know productive construction and safety go together.

At MAP, we focus on the basics of working safely with emphasis on personal responsibility and accountability. Each day, pre-job planning, the incorporation of daily stretching, and Task Hazard Assessments (THA’s) to begin and throughout each day promote and reinforce the safest work environment possible. We work with our customers, subcontractors, and other team members to ensure our entire team is aligned towards carrying out safe work.

In addition to developing a safety culture of educated employees, MAP believes that a safe work environment is contingent on a drug free workforce. We accomplish this by conducting pre-employment, random and post-incident testing.

MAP maintains current safety profiles at ISNetworld®, Avetta and the Energy Coalition for Contractor Safety.
