ROY ANDERSON CORP HISTORY
In 1955, Roy Anderson Jr. founded this company on the principles of honesty and integrity at a time when a handshake was all that was needed to seal a deal. After earning his engineering degree from Georgia Tech in 1951, Roy served his country in the United States Air Force as a pilot in the Korean War. Following his tour of duty, he returned home to start a construction company. With one pickup, two employees and a mere $3,000, Roy Anderson Jr. Inc. was created. Incorporated in 1962, Roy Anderson Corp continued to grow not only in size but in reputation as it brought superior quality construction to the Gulf South.
THE NEXT GENERATION
Bolstered by the instilled values of the founder, dedication to quality and unparalleled performance, Roy Anderson Corp grew from a single man’s vision to one of the most successful construction firms in the Southeast. Trained with construction skills taught by his father and degrees from the University of Alabama and the University of Mississippi School Of Law, Roy Anderson III was named President and CEO in 1992. Under his leadership and a period of consistent company growth, Roy Anderson Corp acquired Harrell Contracting Group (Jackson, MS) in 1994, a respected and diverse Mississippi contractor with an impressive resume of hospitality construction experience. In 2010, Brice Building Company, with offices in New Orleans and Birmingham and a wealth of healthcare and commercial contracting capabilities, was acquired to further expand our presence in the Southeast. Today, Roy Anderson Corp continues to operate multiple offices in the Southeast and continues its commitment to bring superior quality construction to its clients.
POISED FOR THE FUTURE
In 2011, the resources of Roy Anderson Corp were expanded when the company became part of the Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC), effectively serving as the southeast division of Tutor Perini. Capitalizing on core strengths, Tutor Perini Corporation provides Roy Anderson Corp with enhanced opportunities for growth through increased size, scale and management capabilities, immediate access to multiple regions and increased bonding capacity.
