Our Culture

The Industry Leader Who Puts People First

Family First

It is often said at DeFord that if you don't have the time to take care of your family, you won't have the "oomph" needed to take care of work. This is why we believe that family comes first.

DeFord Contracting cares about its employees and offers comprehensive health and dental packages along with a host of other benefits for our workers and their families.

Do the Work

Hard work is the reality of working in the construction industry. It's important that when you show up for work, you show up for work. That's why DeFord Contracting is proud to offer a robust worker incentive package to our employees to ensure they can do their best each and every day.
