Blount Contracting Is Born

A New Generation and Diversity

With Randy playing a critical role in the company's success, he decided it was time to start diversifying their portfolio of work and welcome new challenges.
Focusing On What We Do Best
With a trusting team and a solid fleet of machinery, Blount began rebranding to show how their perseverance solidified their position as a leader in the Southwest's construction industry.
Continuing To Grow
As we continue growing, we reevaluate our customers, culture, and values to ensure it still feels right for us.

In the midst of progression, we’ll continue what’s important: doing the right thing and treating our people well.
