WHO IS BRANCH?

For 60 years, the Branch Group has provided superior service and solutions, working to enhance the communities we serve.

Our business units independently operate but often collaborate to meet the growing demands of the construction industry and offer innovative solutions to our customers. Our experience in vertical construction, design-build, site work, general contracting, heavy highways, construction management, and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems puts us above the competition by offering a unique value our competitors can’t match. Our knowledge and expertise are unparalleled in our markets.

OUR HISTORY

Since 1963, Branch has been dedicated to being one of the best contractors in the Mid-Atlantic. With a collective history of over 100 years, we are one of the only employee-owned companies to offer construction solutions for multiple markets and construction deliveries.

Where We Live, Work, and Play

Serving our communities and building a strong workforce is what drives us. We care because the roads, schools, and infrastructure we build is for all of us. We strive to keep our 900+ employee owners near home, so they can be with their families each night.
