ROCK ISLAND, IL – The Indiana, Illinois, Iowa Foundation for Fair Contracting (“III FFC”) is proud to share that the Illinois Department of Transportation has awarded Phoenix Corporation of the Quad Cities with their 2017 Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) of the Year Award.
Phoenix Corporation of the Quad Cities was established in 1988 and is owned by Marjorie DeCap. Ms. DeCap has nearly 50 years of experience in the trucking & excavating industry. Starting with just 5 employees, Phoenix Corporation has grown into IL DOT’s 2nd District’s largest DBE firm. Phoenix has expanded from trucking to aggregate bases, drainage, excavating and grading, and demolition while working in several districts through Illinois. Phoenix is currently working on the I-74 Iowa-Illinois Corridor project in the Quad Cities. Within their community, Phoenix Corporation established a scholarship in 2016 at Riverdale and Erie High Schools to be presented to a recipient enrolling in an institution of higher education with the concentration of engineering, construction trades or business. Phoenix excels in their work and partnerships, making them an exemplary role model for other DBE firms across the state of Illinois.
The award, presented at this year’s IL DOT “Today’s Challenges Tomorrow’s Rewards” DBE Conference in Springfield, IL, is part of IL DOT’s overall dedication to provide contracting opportunities to small businesses owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.
Having been recognized by their outstanding work by the IL DOT, Phoenix Corporation of the QC—a union contractor signatory with the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150—demonstrates the higher qualities of a responsible contractor.
The III FFC is a labor-management organization, funded solely through participating contractors, established to support, promote and encourage fair contracting. We provide a “level playing field” in the public construction arena for both contractors and workers. Visit to learn more about the III FFC.
