A Proud Construction Heritage

Dunn Construction Company was formed in 1878 as a railroad construction company in Virginia. The Dunn Brothers moved their business to Birmingham, Alabama in the early 1900's. As the automobile became an accepted mode of transportation, Dunn recognized the potential for road paving and opened one of the country's first asphalt plants in 1915. The company has over 100 years of road building experience in the Southeast.

Dunn Construction Company is one of the oldest construction companies in the United States. With principal offices in Birmingham, Alabama; Jackson, Mississippi; and Laurel, Mississippi; Dunn and its subsidiaries are among the largest and most diversified construction firms in the Southeast. Presently, it serves construction markets in road building, general construction, asphalt, ready-mix concrete and other related products.

On September 1, 1996, Dunn purchased the assets of Bush Construction Co., Inc. and formed what is now Dunn Roadbuilders, L.L.C., which is headquartered in Laurel, Mississippi. Dunn Roadbuilders is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dunn Investment Company, Inc. and serves the east central and southeast sections of Mississippi. It has asphalt plants located in Laurel, Petal and Columbia. In addition to asphalt plants, it has material yards at Petal, Laurel, and Meridian. Dunn owns and maintains a substantial inventory of mobile road building equipment capable of handling jobs of all sizes.

Dunn is proud of its construction heritage, its employees, and their collective accomplishments. With its tradition of quality work, high caliber personnel, and competitive pricing, Dunn Roadbuilders looks forward to the future with confidence.
