R&R has consistently delivered in problem solving our risks and standing with us when we did not necessarily manage them well in house. R&R’s staff also fought for us on the workers compensation side and reduced our modification factor by 6 points in 2006. That was a savings of over $30,000. They have been a key part in helping our staff to be some of the best educated and safety conscious in the residential concrete industry.”
