R.D. Howard’s mission, since we were founded in 1946, has been to provide an ever-increasing range of environmentally sensitive superior construction services that meet the needs of our customers while exceeding their expectations, and doing so at a competitive price, in a professionally rewarding, safe, and family-oriented workspace for our staff and stakeholders, that allows for them individually, and the company as a whole, to consistently make a positive impact on the communities that we serve
WE BUILD BETTER FUTURES!... for our wide-ranging client base… for our professional staff and their families… and, for the communities in which we serve, and by doing so, the world in which we live.
OUR CORE VALUES
R.D. Howard’s values are deeply rooted in three age-old sayings often shared as guideposts by our late founder, Leroy Howard, as follows:
“If everybody…if everybody, would just treat other people the same way that they would want to be treated, the world would have very few man-made problems.”
“If you don’t have time to do it (your job or work) the first time, you sure don’t have time to do it over… especially with concrete cause it’s getting harder by the minute.”
And, when it came to explaining his practice of giving ex-offenders a second chance by hiring them, Leroy Howard often said:
“If somebody doesn’t give him a job, he has only two choices… to beg or to steal! And, stealing sends him back through prison’s revolving door and begging robs him of his dignity, and destroys the man for life.”
