From the beginning, we have been a people-oriented firm. We believe in finding the best people, letting them do their best job and rewarding them by making them the owners of our organization. No matter whom you do business with at Garney, you're dealing with one of the owners.
The Garney story begins in 1961, when Charles Garney left his father's Kansas City plumbing business to start his own pipeline and utility construction company. The company thrived on philosophies of integrity, excellence, and fairness with customers.
Over the next two decades, Garney Construction expanded into related construction activities and other regions of the country. Soon it was known as one of the nation's leading contractors in water and wastewater systems. The 2001 acquisition of Grimm Construction, a leading contractor with operations in Colorado and Arizona, further enhanced Garney's capabilities in water treatment, pumping, and storage facilities. Today, Garney can address all the water and wastewater facility needs of municipalities, private developers and industrial users across the country.
The company's growth will continue to be powered by employee-owners who embody the business integrity and excellence in product and service brought to the company by Charles Garney more than 50 years ago.
