The U.S. Virgin Islands firm which received the highest amount of funding from the federal Paycheck Protection Program, meant to help small businesses weather the coronavirus-induced recession that shocked the U.S. economy, was one of the largest firms in the territory, known as Vivot or Eleven Construction.

Vivot has blanketed St. Croix with construction projects ongoing throughout the island, including at the Limetree Bay facility. The company is also performing construction work on what will be the St. Croix legislative building near Five Corners in La Grande Princesse.

The company, however, is listed as PSI Tire Supply on the Paycheck Protection Program data sheet released Monday, a rather strange name for a construction company. Some employees on Wednesday also told the Consortium that their checks from Vivot were issued under PSI Tire Supply. 

One former employee, who was laid off in March, said he had not received unemployment compensation through the V.I. Dept. of Labor for his work at Vivot. This former employee, who requested anonymity to share details of his situation, said when he saw the Consortium article on Tuesday revealing the names of the companies that received Paycheck Protection Program funding, he was surprised to see Vivot as the number 1 recipient of funds, because the company had laid off a number of employees, including, he said, 80 percent of crane riggers. This former employee said he had worked for the company for at least 6 months.

Calls placed to Vivot, whose phone system lists all three entities as Vivot Equipment Corporation, Eleven Construction and PSI PetroMax, were unsuccessful.

The company, in its application for PPP funding, listed 493 employees as jobs the funding would protect. PSI Tire Supply was the only firm in the USVI to receive funding in the maximum category of $5 million to $10 million, with Viya, which said 253 employees would be protected with the funding, coming in second receiving between $2 million to $5 million.
