Garver Recycles Bikes for Kids

Garver employees recently volunteered in Little Rock at the shop belonging to Recycle Bikes for Kids, a charity specializing in collecting, repairing, and giving bikes to kids. Employees aided in organizing inventory, changing tires, and dismantling all types of bicycles. 

“This is a fantastic program that restores life into old bicycles and gives them away to kids who otherwise may never have the chance to own a bike,” said Project Engineer Richard Corbyn. “I know my childhood would not have been complete without owning a bicycle, so I was happy to assist such a great cause.”

The organization hopes to give out over 2,100 bicycles in 2015. If you have a bike to donate to Recycle Bikes for Kids, call 501.207.1696. To find out more about the charitable work Garver does, visit

Garver's New Conway Office Opens Downtown

Garver recently hosted citizens and city leaders at the grand opening of our new downtown office in Conway, Arkansas. Mayor Tab Townsell noted the partnership the City has developed with Garver through recent projects and expressed his gratitude for investing in the revitalization of the downtown area.

“I commend Conway for adding value to the City through well-planned infrastructure,” Garver President and CEO Dan Williams said. “The City made an investment in us when they trusted us with major infrastructure projects, and through our new presence in the downtown business community we are excited to be invested in the future of Conway.”

Here are a few of the ways the partnership between Garver and the City of Conway is paying off through major infrastructure projects:

  •  Cantrell Field—This new regional airport in Conway is a safe, business jet-capable facility that can meet the demands of the business community.

  • Tupelo Bayou Wastewater Treatment Plant—This new plant replaces the existing Stone Dam Treatment Plant and will serve the rapidly expanding central Arkansas metropolitan area for many years.

  • Baker-Wills Parkway— The project will reduce the vehicle miles traveled within the City, meaning not only will there be less traffic, but citizens will be spending less time in their cars, which results in more leisure time and less vehicle emissions.

Employees Gather in Texas for Garver Summit 2015

Some 250 Garver employees from across the region recently gathered in the North Texas area to participate in Garver Summit 2015, the company’s fifth annual meeting. Garver opened its first Texas office in Frisco in 2005 and now the company has four Texas offices—Frisco, Houston, Fort Worth, and Austin.

Employees attended a dinner at Gilley’s Dallas where Garver executives discussed the company’s accomplishments over the past year and how the company hopes to accomplish its goals in the upcoming years.

“Achieving our goals will be the result of the extra effort you all have consistently given to go beyond what’s expected, to offer value-added service to our clients, to provide innovative solutions under tight timelines and restricted budgets, and to develop process improvements that efficiently impact workflows,” President and CEO Dan Williams told employees. “And we will continue to do those things because that makes us Garver.”

In addition to attending the dinner and business meetings, Garver employees were welcomed by Frisco Mayor Maher Maso at RoughRider Field, where they engaged in an intense team-building competition.
