DJ Construction Recognizes 25 Year Employee Lydell Troyer


GOSHEN—January 27, 2015—Lydell Troyer was recently recognized for his 25 years of service at DJ Construction.

Troyer has served the past nine years as vice-president of construction operations where he oversees project managers, field managers, all of the field staff, and the Service Group.

Bob Schrock, CEO at DJ, hired Troyer in 1990. Said Schrock, “At that time I knew Lydell as a hard-working concrete foreman for one of our subcontractors.

Lydell has shown…a competitive drive to get things done through all of his job promotions at DJ. He started as a carpenter and worked his way to foreman, superintendent, project manager, client representative and now, VP of construction operations.”

DJ Construction’s President Doug Wogoman said Troyer is very respected by the field staff “because he was one of them. He is a very caring and passionate individual, both about the projects we do and also about the people—clients and DJ employees alike.”

Wogoman characterizes Troyer as a man who “sees no hurdle that can’t be overcome or challenge that can’t be met when a team pulls together and works in concert. He pushes and encourages all of his field staff to do their best in all they do and to take pride in their work just as he learned from his predecessors at DJ.

“He carries the DJ culture forward very well.”

Troyer is a 1983 graduate of Northridge High School and attends Clinton Frame Church. His wife Karmen and he live in Syracuse. They have twin daughters, Riley and Raina.

In honor of his 25th anniversary, DJ Construction gifted the Troyers with a Caribbean cruise vacation.
