Alfred Miller Contracting Awarded Top 50 Locally-Owned Business in Southwest Louisiana
Alfred Miller Contracting tops the list of Lagniappe Magazine’s 2017 Top 50 locally-owned businesses in Southwest Louisiana. The recipients of the Top 50 award are nominated and then selected by Lagniappe Magazine.
The Top 50 Locally-Owned Business report cites a boom for the Southwest Louisiana region and a positive outlook, including Alfred Miller Contracting:
While the pace of projects has been slower than anticipated, that’s good news, says CEO, Philip Miller, as it means that the boom will last longer than expected and local companies will be able to get a greater percentage of the work.”
Featured in the Top 12 of the Top 50 businesses, Alfred Miller Contracting’s feature in the publication touted the company’s 70-year history and progressive development since the mid-90’s.
“In the mid-90’s, the company added precast concrete buildings to its list of products and became a design/build general contractor. Around that same time, it also became the only Louisiana company to install fireproofing of structural steel for refineries and chemical plants. The fireproofing operation has continued to expand, and in the last 10 years, the company has completed a series of the largest shop fireproofing projects in U.S. history.
The company was able to hold onto its employees during the “lean” years leading up to the current industrial expansion, and is now reaping the benefits, as it’s been able to take on the increasing number of projects in the area.”
Capital projects are moving forward, and new projects are being announced all the time, says Miller, and the company’s future looks great.
The Top 50 Locally-Owned Business awards reception will take place on June 27, 2017 at The Golden Nugget Lake Charles.
