ENR recently selected its Southeast Specialty Contractor of the Year—Davidson, N.C.-based Wayne Brothers Inc. The specialty concrete and civil construction contractor experienced good revenue growth in 2017, the year covered by this year’s survey. The firm’s Southeast revenue for 2017 totaled roughly $96.7 million, up roughly 16% from the $83.38 million it reported for last year’s ranking.
Now with more than 450 employees, the company also noted recent geographic expansions, with new offices in Clarksville, Tenn., and more recently, an office in Savannah, Ga. Also, in March 2018, WBI acquired Intespec, Inc., which provides equipment installation services, such as rigging and setting, associated piping installation and system design and layout.
“I see us diversifying smartly into areas related to what we already do,” Keith Wayne, President of Wayne Brothers told ENR. “Acquiring InteSpec is an example, as it complements the other work we do.”
Overall, Wayne Brothers is experiencing a strong market in the Carolinas, Georgia and Tennessee. Manufacturing is the contractor’s cornerstone sector.
“We’re still seeing a full range of industry that likes the idea of working in the Southeast,” Wayne told ENR. “All areas are doing well, and demand for our trade work is strong.”
Perhaps more importantly, the contractor marked a recent safety achievement, having logged more than 929,000 work hours since July 2017 without a single lost-time accident. Readers will be able to learn more about Wayne Brothers’ efforts when ENR Southeast profiles the firm in the upcoming Sept. 3 print edition.
