Construction, materials companies consolidate

By |  July 10, 2015

Three Mid-Atlantic materials production and heavy civil construction management companies – American Infrastructure, Allan A. Myers and Independence Construction Materials – are consolidating under one name, Allan Myers.

“We’re really just formalizing something that has already happened naturally through doing business,” says Ross Myers, CEO and chairman, who is also grandson of the company founder. “These three entities have been operating as one for some time now, gaining efficiencies to take on the most complex and challenging projects.”

According to a press release, Allan Myers has been responsible for creating roads, bridges, treatment plants, residential and commercial developments and pipelines that connect communities to services, clean water and each other. Examples of the company’s work are the Jersey Shore Pump Station; the Argonne Drive Bridge in Baltimore; I-95 paving in Virginia; the Pennsylvania Turnpike interchange in Philadelphia; the Brandywine water filtration plant in Wilmington, Del.; and the Montebello underground reservoir in Baltimore.

The company says it will continue to employ more than 2,000 and will have projects in Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

“This move is going to take us to the next level,” Myers says. “As one newly integrated company we’re positioned to go after projects of increasingly large size and scope. This is good news for an industry rapidly growing after a stagnant period.”
