Our Story

Our strong history is built on reliability, integrity and solid relationships.

In 1992, Dave Osburn founded Osburn Contractors with the goal of becoming the recognized leader in commercial concrete construction in the southern U.S. By focusing on customer satisfaction, outstanding quality and a progressive work environment, Osburn established a reputation for reliability and integrity that served as a solid foundation for growth.

As the company expanded, we extended the scope of our services to include not only flatwork, tilt-wall, foundations and paving, but multilevel structures as well. We invested in resources that increased production capability while maintaining strict quality control. We also acquired a large fleet of concrete mixer trucks, material haulers and pump trucks, and we developed mobile batch plants and augmented our array of concrete finishing tools and equipment.

Osburn now has more than 1,100 employees and four primary business groups strategically established to serve customers in the construction marketplace. Osburn Contractors Inc. is one of the nation’s foremost builders of big-box, industrial structures as well as complex, multistory tilt-wall buildings and large-scale paving projects. Osburn Structures LLC serves the vertical construction market, delivering turnkey solutions as well as form, place and finish solutions according to customer needs. Osburn Trucking LLC and Osburn Pumping LLC have grown into thriving business units that not only support our own construction teams on the flatwork and structures side, but also provide full-service trucking and pumping solutions to external companies that need help meeting the demands of their own clients.
