Built for You
WITHOUT YOU, THERE IS NO US.
It all began when Murray Ferguson was only 19 years old. He returned to Sidney, Ohio after serving his country in World War I and joined his father in the construction business. Shortly after, when his father fell ill, Murray took over the young company. With only ten employees, he not only built buildings, but the foundation of a company whose reputation would soon exemplify exceptional quality, integrity, and an unparalleled commitment to improving the communities in which it serves.
Over one hundred years later, the principles Murray Ferguson built this construction company on still stand today. Ferguson Construction supports local families throughout the Dayton, Columbus, Indianapolis and Sidney regions, with consistent and meaningful work with opportunities for growth. From day one, every brick laid, hammer swung, and foundation poured has been for our clients and our communities. As we look to the future, the faces and processes may change, but the values on which Ferguson Construction was built will continue for generations to come.
“Our success is dependent on how we build relationships with our customers. For me the best feeling is not just seeing a finished building, but having the same customer ask us to come back again and again for more projects. We have forged those relationships and that has made Ferguson what it is today.”
– Mick Given, CEO, Ferguson Construction
Imagine a couple of workers – with their own tools, an old Ford pick-up, and a couple of stepladders– entrusted to build and maintain the structures of a small Midwestern town.
The year was 1920. There were no power tools, no mobile phones, no penicillin. Murray Ferguson was 19 years old and had just returned to Sidney, Ohio, after serving in World War I. He joined his father in the construction industry, and when his father fell ill, Murray took over the young company. With only 10 employees, he not only built buildings, but the foundation of a company whose reputation would soon exemplify quality, integrity, and an unparalleled commitment to customer satisfaction.
One hundred years later, with more than 210 craftspeople in the field, and an administrative support team of over 75, Ferguson Construction is still known as a values-based, family company that goes the extra mile to provide on-time and on-budget performance. Specializing in creating healthcare, commercial, government, educational, industrial, retail, and manufacturing spaces, Ferguson’s diverse portfolio includes projects of all sizes from renovations and retrofits to new builds.
