Cook Contracting, LLC first put down its roots when Stewart Cook Sr. started out in the trucking and excavating business in 1947. Young Stewart Cook Jr. accompanied his father at every opportunity. As he grew up, Stewart Jr. became a highly accomplished equipment operator on every type of machinery imaginable, as well as a master mechanic and business manager. Stewart Jr. gradually assumed management of the firm as time wore on. Stewart Sr. passed away in 1999, and Stewart Jr. became the CEO and President of the present-day operation. Stewart Jr. recently acquired the Harmony Paving Company from Randy Hoff once Randy retired from the paving business. Shortly thereafter, Hummer Contracting, LLC was absorbed into the operation. Dick Hummer remains onboard and serves as Chief Estimator.
