Texas Heavy-Highway Electrical Construction
Established in January 2000 as a telecommunications infrastructure contractor, The Levy Company’s primary line of work was initially in support of telecommunications providers expanding DSL coverage in their markets. We used our skill in providing electrical contracting support for the large-scale production of vaults and shelters to meet the demands of emerging technologies.
In the fall of 2001, as the natural next step in our growth strategy, we ventured into the areas we knew best: highway signage, lighting, traffic signal, and traffic management construction and maintenance. The Levy Company successfully prequalified with TxDOT and began bidding and securing work. In September 2017, The Levy Company established an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), enabling employees to reap the rewards of the Company’s continuing growth and success. In 2018, The Levy Company further expanded, adding a commercial electrical division.
What began as a company of four has grown to a company with more than 140 employee-owners within the San Antonio, Austin, and Rio Grande Valley areas, with work throughout south and central Texas. In an industry where changes are frequent, The Levy Company remains a constant quality contractor.
We are proud to be 100% employee-owned.
