A Family beyond blood

It started with two high school age brothers, a backhoe and a truck, and grew into a 115-employee company that is tackling everything from roads, apartment communities, and residential and commercial projects, covering everything from site clearing, demolition, underground utilities, cubing, sidewalks, and paving. With Leica Geosystems solutions and Beard Equipment as their technology partner, the O’Steen Brothers were able to rapidly ramp up their business and increase their efficiency on projects, allowing them to do more with less.
