With a name like Humble Construction, it’s not surprising that the company’s president would say that key to success is being fair and honorable to customers. For more than 60 years, that’s exactly how the Ohio-based general contractor has done business, and President Terry Humble says he has no intention of ever changing that.

In the wake of the 9/11 attacks, an entirely new segment of the construction industry grew up: homeland security. As fear of terrorism grew and the wars in the Middle East expanded, the demand for heightened security skyrocketed.

Cruz Construction Inc. says that it is capable of doing what others consider impossible. “Innovation and a hands-on management style has made Cruz Construction what it is today – a company able to successfully complete numerous projects in seemingly impossible situations quickly and without damage to the environment,” the company says. Based in Palmer, Alaska, the general contractor provides clients with oilfield and heavy civil services, including tundra transportation, rig moving and land clearing. Founders Dave and Dana Cruz started the company in 1981.

Based in Oakville, Ontario, M&G Steel Ltd. has grown into one of the leading structural steel fabrication and erection contractors in the province.

With more than 300 offices in the United States and Canada, PuroClean has become one of the fastest-growing disaster restoration organizations in North America. The Tamarac, Fla.-based company was established in 1990 as a franchise operator geared toward educating contractors on how to penetrate the insurance market and gain restoration work.
