50 Years of Experience
Haymes Brothers, Inc. was founded in 1965 by brothers Bill and Charlie Haymes. At the time, they primarily worked as a residential sewer and septic installation contractor operating in Danville, VA and surrounding areas.
As the brothers' reputation for honesty and quality workmanship grew in the residential sector, opportunities to perform related commercial work developed. Soon the brothers were sub-contracting with larger construction companies to build concrete headwalls, box culverts and paved ditches.
By the early 1970's the Haymes Brothers equipment fleet, expertise, and manpower grew such that they were able to successfully bid and perform various site-work projects. From grading and excavating to concrete bridge and dam construction, HBI was transforming from a residential contractor to a well-respected heavy civil contractor.
Bill's son Andy and Charlie's son Chuck were involved with Haymes Brothers since their early childhood. Throughout late adolescence and early manhood, both boys worked their way through the ranks with the eventual goal of following in their fathers' footsteps. By the late 1990s, Andy and Chuck earned leadership roles in the company as the head of the concrete division and the site preparation division, respectively.
In 2001 Andy and Chuck purchased the company from their fathers and the company has continued to grow and prosper. Payroll ranges from 80-180 employees, dependent on the workload.
