Building America For 60 Years

Building America For 60 Years NEWS

Ames Construction is excited to celebrate a milestone anniversary—60 years of building America!

Ames opened its doors for business in 1962 as a small, family-run earthwork contractor that served a community. Today, the company is a full-service, heavy civil and industrial general contractor with customers throughout North America. While maintaining corporate offices in Minnesota, our regional offices are strategically located in multiple geographic areas to support and serve the ever-evolving project demands of our customers.

The company has grown and adapted to meet the needs of an ever-changing industry, yet our values of honesty, integrity and perseverance remain constant. These core qualities are reflected in both the corporate culture and the character of our employees.

Looking back, we have learned that our success is less about building a business and more about building relationships—with our clients, vendors and the dedicated people who work together to do their best for the customer, every day on every project. From small, yet vital, community work, to large and complex construction projects, we believe that no job is too small and no challenge is too big.

“The only constant is change,” and we have learned to expect and embrace it. Tomorrow’s challenges will be different, yet the culture of commitment to our customers and to each other will serve as the compass to guide the company to its next level of achievement. 

We are proud to be part of an industry that builds projects benefiting people today and for generations to come, and we look forward to accepting future challenges and finding ways to say yes to new opportunities. As company founder Dick Ames said, “It’s not the company that gets the job done, it’s the people, the attitude and the teamwork that get the job done.”
