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 assets and equipment from a handshake deal. Today, we are a fully integrated construction company with a national reach. We have evolved from our humble beginnings as a small bridge-building company. Much like 100 years ago, our handshake is still our commitment, and we earn trust by building quality projects and lasting relationships.
