our history

Ben Hur Construction Company pre-dates the 1959 epic film. Founded in 1909, we are one of the original steel companies in the United States. With humble beginnings as a small bridge-building company, whose company assets and equipment were procured in a handshake deal. Now we are a fully integrated construction company with national reach and a regional footprint. We have evolved taking careful stock of lasting and quality solutions, and rejecting what is not.
