Who is Morton Construction Company

Who is Morton Construction Company?

Morton Construction Company has been building up to perfection for over 20 years. We don’t take our responsibilities to our clients lightly. Every project we take on is important to our clients and we take personal ownership of our part. We believe that with open communication and a conscientious approach, every project will be successful. We extend that philosophy to our subcontractors as well.

A Bit Of History

The company’s dedication to quality wasn’t just a business decision, it’s the way Ron Morton has been working for over 60 years. As a young man, Ron poured precast concrete for what is still the downtown Sanford Courthouse- a building with a strong and long lasting foundation. Morton Construction has built their business on a foundation of their own focused on integrity, respect and communication-qualities that our clients and subcontractors can count on.
