When Robert Stewart entered the business world more than three-quarters of a century ago, he was armed with a keen mind, a tireless work ethic and the conviction that a man is only as good as his word.
His first investment was a used air compressor and jackhammer. He purchased and then leased them to the contractor on a large sewer installation project in which he was employed as rod-man on the survey crew. That investment ultimately enabled Stewart to start York Construction Company – now Stewart & Tate, Inc.
Shortly thereafter, he invested in a Trackscavator, a machine that dug basements for homes faster than any competing method. Eager builders were soon lining up, waiting to get Stewart’s Trackscavator onsite. Another wise investment.
That heritage, in a nutshell, captures The Stewart Companies’ business acumen. Today, their combined entities handle the entire range of construction related services, from the production of raw and finished aggregate products, to land development and all aspects of horizontal and vertical construction. This integration allows the companies to leverage their capabilities, competencies and cost-efficiencies in ways that produce superior client value.
In keeping with their tradition of steady growth, The Stewart Companies have expanded beyond their construction industry core, diversifying into the automotive dealership and outdoor advertising markets.
Values Honored. Success Ensured.
Technology evolves, codes change, and economies come and go. But the foundational values that have driven The Stewart Companies’ success since the 1930s remain bedrock firm.
Our minds are keener, thanks to years of experience. Our work ethic is stronger, honed by years of competitive fire. And our drive to cultivate lasting relationships has never been more intense. After all, while anyone can land new customers, it’s the ability to develop and maintain repeat customers that truly reflects a company’s long-term value.
That is how Robert Stewart’s legacy lives on in his children, grandchildren and the company that bears his name: opportunities recognized … assets leveraged … clients satisfied … growth ensured.
We look forward to guiding you through your next project.
