Here is the internal announcement from Weeks Marine to its employees about its merger with Kiewit.
“To: All Weeks Employees
From: Rich Weeks and Dick Weeks
Date: September 20, 2022
Re: The Future
Yesterday, Weeks Marine Board of Directors approved an agreement to join the Kiewit Corporation as a wholly-owned subsidiary. Weeks has been a family-owned business for five generations and joining with Kiewit is in the long-term best interest of our employees and clients. This is an exciting opportunity for all of us.
We have a long history with Kiewit and their culture, values, and dedication to employees is a great fit with Weeks. Kiewit is an extremely successful construction engineering firm operating in the civil, energy, and building sectors throughout the United States and Canada. Our expertise and market position are an excellent addition to their capabilities. Weeks will retain its name and management going forward.
The targeted closing date is January 1, 2023. We would request your patience and cooperation as we work out the details of this combination. It is important to know that we will be operating as business as usual during this time and into 2023.
Please direct any questions or inquiries to Communications and refrain from speaking to the media. We are excited about this next phase of growth and development and believe that a partnership with Kiewit will allow Weeks Marine and its employees to continue to grow and prosper. Thank you for your continued support and hard work.”
