Who We Are

Eutaw Construction Company, Inc., named for the strong Eutaw clay prevalent in Northeast Mississippi, was founded in 1980 by Thomas S. Elmore.  As a Project Manager for Granite Construction Company, Tom moved to the area and oversaw the construction of the Aberdeen Lock and Dam built on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway.  After the project was complete, Tom settled in Aberdeen, Mississippi where he began Eutaw. 

Today Eutaw employs over 400 employees comprised of management, division personnel, field supervisors, foreman, operators, and skilled laborers.  Since its founding in 1980, the Company’s heavy equipment fleet has grown to an approximate appraised value of $35 million. 

In 2012, Eutaw converted from a family owned and operated business to an ESOP (employee stock ownership plan).  Today the company is led by President Tom Elmore, along with a Board of Directors and committees of employees from several departments with decades of knowledge and experience in all aspects of the company.  Eutaw’s corporate headquarters is in Madison, Mississippi, and it has regional offices in Aberdeen, Mississippi (North Mississippi), Petal, Mississippi (South Mississippi), and Franklin, Tennessee (Nashville area).  Eutaw has an active presence in the Mississippi Road Builders Association, the Tennessee Road Builders Association, the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), and the Associated General Contractors (AGC). 

Eutaw’s experience in the industry includes the construction of hundreds of miles of state and federal highways, bridge construction/repair, utility projects, large-scale site construction, airfield construction, and disaster relief. Eutaw is licensed or has performed work in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.  Eutaw continues to grow throughout the southeast and has become an employer of choice in the construction industry.  We strive to work safely, do business with integrity, and find pride in producing quality work and investing in our employee-owners. 


We have the people, the experience, and capacity to get the job done safely.
