Hoffman Construction Buckles Down with an Innovative Safety Award Idea

Using a gift presented inspiration, learn how Hoffman Construction incorporated nostalgia into a unique safety award for display.

The Opportunity

An employee of Hoffman Construction, a large general contractor on the West Coast, found a unique belt buckle dating back over 40 years at a community sale and graciously gifted it to the President of the company. The President was so moved by the kind act that he sought to incorporate a replica of this item to display in the lobby of its company headquarters as part of a safety award.

The Challenge

This custom project was to be completed in 5 weeks to coincide with an awards ceremony already scheduled.

The Solution

Platinum Promotions utilized its keen understanding of the business and applied The Platinum Way when presenting the best options to quickly go into production. Platinum Promotions presented the ideal wood frame colors, metal finishes, plate layouts and identified where to exactly to incorporate the buckle.

The Result

The award was presented as part of a corporate dinner party event, and then placed on display in the company lobby. Since on display in the corporate lobby, the award plaque has received numerous raves and reviews from staff and customers. The President was beyond satisfied at how The Platinum Way made this custom award a smooth and seamless process.

“Platinum Promotions faced various challenges in bringing this project to fruition. Even with our tight timeline and constraints, the high scrutiny of the Hoffman Executive approval process and the integration of the antique belt buckle, they pulled it all together and made it happen.”
