Early in 1997, Wade Miller and his father, John Miller, bought a small construction |
company, which had 35 employees, 15 pieces of equipment and
four highway projects. After winning approximately $7 million in
bids within its first year, Big Creek Construction Ltd. was
recognized as an established company and steadily
increased that sum in 1998.
Big Creek's bids have significantly increased since its
founding averaging 25 jobs, $12 million in 1999 and
over 20 million in 2000. Over the past few years
Big Creek has picked up several highway
projects to launch them to the position of 93rd
largest federal highway contractor in ARTBA's
(American Road and Transportation Builder's
Association) Top 300 list for 2003.
Today, Big Creek employees more than 300
employees and ten road crews. Big Creek values its staff members and strives
to stay employee-oriented, especially since its owners, John and Wade Miller, have firsthand knowledge of what employees face on a daily basis.
Other investors are Mark Miller, Shannon Parsons, and Chris Wolfe.
