Kimmins Contracting Corp. began in 1923 in western New York when William Kimmins founded the company with the spirit of family infused into every aspect of its operation. Kimmins believed that every person, regardless of their position, is an in­tegral and valued part of the team. He understood that what makes a company great is its people.

Although John Minder founded Great Northwest Inc. as a seasonal landscaping firm that handled $30,000 worth of work in its first year and now produces about $50 million annually performing heavy highway, site and utility work, don’t give him the credit for the company reaching its 35th anniversary. 

Arturo Díaz Jr., founded his first company in Puerto Rico more than 70 years ago. Since then, he has built one of the Caribbean’s biggest construction conglomerates, a family-run business anchored by a major asphalt company that has become an industry leader in the region. Empresas Díaz has divisions that operate in construction, infrastructure and project development. Its current portfolio includes construction of the Trump International Residences & Golf Club at Coco Beach resort in Río Grande, Puerto Rico.

After growing from a small concrete repair contractor into a heavy civil concrete company over the course of 30 years, there isn’t much ConCreate USL Ltd. hasn’t been hired to do. So when an owner needs a unique solution to a project problem that isn’t encountered every day, the company  doesn’t back down from the challenge.

In the last 130 years, it is astronomical how much the world has changed. Companies have reached the highest levels of success and completely disappeared, and the amount of technology that has been invented and reinvented has transformed every industry and marketplace. But one thing that has remained for the last 130 years is Clarkson Construction Co. The Kansas City, Mo., company has learned to adapt to the market and new needs of the industry, creating continuous growth and success.

In the paving business, there’s no substitute for doing the job right. A company may have all the most advanced equipment, multiple locations studded throughout the region and virtually limitless financial backing, but if it doesn’t perform up to the customer’s standards, it can’t expect to be around for too long. Getting the job done right and paving with a high degree of quality requires having the right people in place who are dedicated to their work and value building a strong reputation for their company.

Alaska Interstate Construction (AIC) LLC says its success is based on a professional approach and maintaining close working re­lationships with clients. “We pride ourselves on our flexibility and responsiveness,” the company ex­p­lains. “We have the people, knowledge and experience that enable us to execute a full range of projects from the very small to major world-class developments.”

At Wright Brothers Construction Co. Inc., the employees know that being flexible and able to adapt comes with the job. When heavy rains flooded several cities in Tennessee in May, causing railroad tracks to unearth, Wright Brothers made sure its 300-plus fleet of equipment was ready to respond. The team removed mud and water and re­placed it with solid earth to support the tracks and get Tennessee’s railroad system back in business.
