“Whatever It Takes”
Our Motto. Our Promise.
Leeward Construction is an integral part of the construction industry in Northeastern Pennsylvania and regional parts of New York and New Jersey. We specialize in utility, highway, heavy and building site construction. In addition, we also own and operate our own rock quarries and asphalt.
Leeward Construction opened its doors for business in January of 1993. It was established following a collaborative project on the United States Naval Base in Antigua, West Indies; part of the Leeward Islands. Hence, it was only fitting the company was named Leeward Construction.
Since 1996, the family owned and operated business has expanded and diversified its work load and service area, growing to complete more than $45 million in work annually. Leeward’s success is due largely in part to the commitments of our talented personnel who have helped us to complete over $350 million worth of work since our inception.
In 2001, Leeward acquired the first of its stone quarries, Leeward Lackawaxen Quarry. Located on 80 acres in Lackawaxen Township, this quarry led the company to expand its aggregate business to encompass several more quarries: Leeward Middlecreek Quarry, Leeward Cresco Quarry. We also entered into a joint venture with Haines and Kibblehouse, Inc., in 2004 to obtain Bedrock Quarry located in Northern Wayne County. All together, our family of quarries, supply our jobsites and are available to other contractors and the public for purchase.
Another adventure for our company was opening our own asphalt plant in 2003. Leeward Asphalt, a four-ton Barber Green asphalt plant, produces over 200,000 tons of asphalt a year. A truly impressive number for a facility that is only operational for 7-8 months of the year.
Leeward further prides itself on its ownership of a vast equipment fleet. The force includes, but is not limited to: tri-axle trucks, trailers, excavators, loaders, rollers, cranes, pavers and curbing machines. In short, everything Leeward needs to get the job done.
The Leeward Family is made up of nearly 250 employees, during peak season, whose trades cover a multitude of specialties. Operators, pipe layers, concrete finishers and carpenters, electricians, and mechanics are merely a few of the many titles employees hold within the company.
Leeward is very proud of our competent staff and the goals we have accomplished since our inception. We will continue to bid competitively, purchase carefully and to hire and maintain a talented staff. In addition, we will tirelessly, pursue maintaining ourselves at the forefront of our industry. We believe that these objectives will only strengthen our place in the construction industry.
