About Us

       Our story began in 1953 when Jim Whitaker decided to get out of the sand and gravel business and start a utility construction company with a pickup truck, a shovel, and one helper. Now his company has become one of the most respected contractors in the intermountain area with more than 400 employees and nearly 50 crews.
