WHAT SETS CADDELL CONSTRUCTION AND ITS SERVICES APART? Few companies can match the depth and diversity of Caddell’s portfolio, a reflection of Caddell’s reputation for taking on difficult and unique construction challenges.
HOW DOES CADDELL GIVE BACK TO THE LOCAL COMMUNITY? Caddell’s founder, John Caddell, recently celebrated his 90th birthday. He and his beloved late wife, Joyce, set an example of generosity and service that is in the DNA of the company. Though it is an international company, Caddell has not forgotten its roots, giving nearly $100,000 back to local communities last year, along with hands-on acts of kindness through Meals on Wheels, work in community gardens and other physical demonstrations of a deep-rooted commitment to being a good corporate citizen.
WHAT’S ON THE HORIZON FOR CADDELL CONSTRUCTION? In the last few years, Caddell opened offices in the greater Atlanta area and in Bentonville, Arkansas, to support efforts of its commercial and power/industrial divisions. The recent diversification has proven successful, with new projects totaling more than $200 million in these sectors, including work for three Fortune 500 clients.
The company moved the corporate headquarters into the spacious RSA Dexter building in downtown Montgomery earlier this year and is positioned for even greater growth in the future. In the first quarter of 2020, it was awarded nearly half a billion dollars in new contracts to add to its portfolio—an already-impressive project list that spans 34 countries on 5 continents and every region of the United States.
