New Bank Building

“We recently added a new branch at 1630 East Jackson, Macomb, Illinois.  Trotter Contracting, Inc. was awarded the project.  From the very beginning to the end of the project, Trotter’s were very good to work with.  At many times, they went over and above what was expected.   All of the employees of the company took pride in their work and the finished project shows that to be the case.  I was told by other employees of the bank that we should use this building as a model for other additional facilities we may have in the future.   I would highly recommend Trotter Contracting, Inc. for your construction needs.”  Brent Voth, VP Operations, First Bankers Trust Company N.A., Quincy, Illinois


Multiple Farm Supply Store Projects

“I have had the pleasure of working with Trotter General Contracting, Inc. on several projects for Farm King.  Tim Shields and Chris Trotter are “hands on” with every project they have worked on for Farm King.  Trotters have worked at our Distribution Center, our Macomb, Illinois store, our Monmouth, Canton, Galesburg and Kewanee stores, as well as our Burlington, Iowa Farm King store.  Some projects have been several months and others have been several weeks.  Tim and Chris have always completed their work on time and they take no shortcuts.   Retail stores must not be interrupted from their normal business operations.  Trotter General Contracting, Inc. has always managed to work around our schedule and make it easy for the Farm King operations.   Trotter has been competitive in the bidding process and they watch how they are spending our money, coming up with alternate ideas, if possible.   I look forward to  working with Trotter General Contracting, Inc., again!                                          Brad D. Severs,  VP, Farm King


Healthcare Client

“It is my pleasure to write this letter of reference for Trotter Contracting, Inc. of Macomb, Illinois.   Eagle View Community Health System first became acquainted with TGCI when they were awarded our pharmacy expansion construction contract in April 2007.  Since that time, we have had the pleasure of working with them on two other projects and would be more than happy to work with them again, if the situation presented itself.   Eagle View has always found Trotter General Contracting, Inc. to be trustworthy and attentive to details.  Anytime we had questions during the construction process, they were always willing to answer them in detail.  On occasion, when it was necessary for a change-order to be addressed, TGCI was more than happy to make those changes and present a clear picture of how the change would affect the project timeline and budget.   I highly recommend Trotter General Contracting, Inc. for your construction project, without reservation.    Melinda Whiteman, Executive Director, Eagle View Community Health System, Oquawka, IL


School District

 I wanted to write to let you know how pleased I was with our working relationship this summer as your company, Trotter General Contracting, Inc., worked to complete our general work contract as part of the West Central School District Ten Year Health Life Safety project.

 As part of the general work contract, we had a number of projects going on at the same time:  a significant amount of concrete replacement and repair; the replacement of the football stadium bleachers; a significant door replacement project; the installation of a lightning detection system and some significant reshaping of the ground around our north campus building to facilitate better drainage as well as a few other smaller projects.

 As with any large contract (ours was approximately $650,000) there will always be “issues” to deal with. What most impressed me was your attitude of doing what is best for the customer. You recognized when compromise was needed in order to address unforeseen circumstances. You also stepped up and absorbed some costs for additional work that was not planned for or made necessary for whatever reason. At all times I found you to be professional, courteous and easy to work with. The same was particularly true during our weekly coordination meetings. I also appreciated your flexibility in scheduling your workers around our school schedule.

 I have worked with many other contractors during my 19 years as a district superintendent. I can honestly say that working with you and your team on this project was one of the easier contracts that I have worked with. I would have no problem whatsoever recommending you to other school districts or other potential clients. Thank you so much for making us feel like partners in the process instead of someone who is simply writing checks. Your time, talent and attention to our needs was greatly appreciated.            Ralph Grim,   Superintendent, West Central Community Unit School District #235,   Biggsville, IL
