Delbert and Linda Edstrom
Delbert and Linda Edstrom started Edstrom Construction in April 1975. Delbert had been working as a Superintendent for Hartwell Excavation. Kennedy Paving and Hartwell Excavation decided to merge companies and create a new entity. As part of the merger, employees of Hartwell Excavation were given the option of a buyout on their stocks. Delbert and Linda decided this was their opportunity to start their own business and made their first purchase, a backhoe. Through determination and ambition they have grown Edstrom Construction to the company it is today; averaging 10 million a year in revenue and employing some 75 employees.
