The sixth annual lists of ABC Top Performers, included diverse businesses, from women-owned and service-disabled to disadvantaged business enterprises, veteran-owned, minority-owned businesses, large and small, as well as general contractors and specialty trade contractors.

The top ABC performer by work hours was Turner Industries Group, Louisiana.

Skanska Building, Tennessee, came in second, BL Harbert International, Alabama, came in third, followed by Brown & Root Industrial Services and Performance Contractors, both of Louisiana.

“These top contractors build the nation’s most enduring, innovative, high-quality construction projects, and their leadership teams and employees have thriving, growth-centric mindsets, strategic plans and goals,” said Michael Bellaman, president and CEO of ABC.

“Business growth is never an accident. It results from a combination of tangibles and intangibles – including a robust culture, innovative tools, a commitment to total human health and a pragmatic appetite for risk.”
