Branco Enterprises, Inc. was ranked by Engineering News-Record (ENR) as a Top 100 Contracting Firms in the Midwest for the fourth consecutive year. ENR compiles and publishes rankings of the largest construction and engineering firms annually, measured by revenues from the previous calendar year. Reported revenues are generated from general contracting, design build and construction management services.
“We are extremely honored to be named a top 100 contractor for 2018,” says Branco President Justin Branham. “None of this would have been possible without the dedication of our extremely hard working employees and our clients who choose Branco as their builder of choice.”
A total of 15 Missouri firms were included in the 100 Midwest Top Contracting Firms list, with Branco Enterprises, Inc. being the only firm located in Southwest Missouri. According to Fails Management Institute, FMI, total engineering and construction spending for the United States is forecasted to end up six percent in 2018, compared to four percent in 2017. The industry as a whole has faced challenges when it comes to finding and retaining talent, in addition to staying current with the latest technology trends and safety practices. Despite these challenges, Branham says Branco continues to be successful because of their people.
“We work diligently to keep safety in the forefront of our operation,” he said. “Safety and innovation are key for success in this industry and our people continue to do both exceptionally well. Additionally, our Carpentry Apprenticeship Program allows students to obtain real world knowledge and skills right out of high school while obtaining college credit.” While the company has had an apprenticeship program since 1993, Branco partnered with Crowder College in 2015 to offer a four year program consisting of on-the-job training. “This allows us to be proactive in our recruitment and training efforts and utilize the expertise of our current workforce to train the next generation of craftsman,” Branham added.
The company recently celebrated their 85th Anniversary.
