Mike Reed watched his father’s construction career growing and thought he could follow suit. After working double shifts at a local paper mill, Mike put a down payment on his first dump truck and started running around the clock at Redstone Arsenal. With that, Reed Contracting began in 1987.
Reed’s business took off as they began to pride themselves on doing whatever everyone else didn’t want to do, from repairing water mains on Christmas to hauling fly ash. As they grew in size, leadership invested in new capabilities to avoid relying on other suppliers and subcontractors.
Eventually, Reed expanded into the asphalt, concrete, and aggregate businesses to not only supply themselves but to sell to the local Huntsville market as well. Today, they’re vertically integrated, allowing them to control their destiny on every project they take on.
Even with their size, there’s still so much room for growth at Reed Contracting. The opportunities are endless due to their scale, and thanks to their local operating area, they don’t make employees travel. If you like to make it happen, this is the place for you.
"When a decision needs to be made, you don’t have to go up some corporate chain and wait for when (and if) it will happen here."- John Bass, Concrete Sales Manager
When Rodney isn’t working, odds are you’ll find him riding horses. Before joining Reed thirteen years ago, he worked at a flooring plant. He knows everything about asphalt, but he says ranking is his favorite part of paving.
