Dunn Investment Co.

The new partnership with Civil Constructors, which employs 210 fulltime workers here, creates one of the largest road construction, excavating and paving companies in the region.
Dunn is one of the Southeast’s leaders in construction, specializing in ready-mix concrete supply, asphalt paving and civil construction and real estate development. 
As part of the agreement, Dunn will make a strategic investment in Civil, one of the largest and most comprehensive site contractors in the region. 
Dunn Investment Company is a five-generation family-owned business that offers a full spectrum of construction and real estate services.
Will French, CEO of Dunn Investment Company, said, "We are delighted to welcome Civil Constructors into the Dunn family of companies, and to grow our business in Middle Tennessee. Our organizations share a similar commitment to delivering the highest quality work performed by our own expertly trained professionals. Our joint focus on managing projects effectively throughout the process ensures that this will be a successful partnership."
"Considering their rich history and diverse line of services, Dunn is well positioned to continue Civil Constructors’ reputation as a company that exceeds our customers’ expectations on large and small projects," said Joe Rodgers, President, Civil Constructors. 
Rodgers will remain in his role as president, and will retain an ownership stake in the company along with Steve Adcock, former general superintendent and now vice president.
The Rodgers family is no stranger to the construction business. Joe Rodger’s brothers ran Nashville-based General Constructors, Inc. and American Constructors, Inc. 
"The Dunn and Civil partnership represents a deep pool of talent, expertise and professionalism," Rodgers said. "Together, we will be able to serve Middle Tennessee in an efficient manner."
Including this partnership, the Dunn family of companies encompasses seven organizations: Dunn Construction, Dunn Building Company, Dunn Real Estate, Dunn Roadbuilders, Bayou Concrete, Civil Constructors and MMC Materials.
