Counts and Dobyns was founded as Counts Excavation. In 1986, Counts and Dobyns was formed as a partnership. At that time the company began to grow and employed 16 employees under the leadership of Terry P. Dobyns. In 1992 Terry Dobyns became the sole owner and the company continued to expand, consisting of, at present, four (4) divisions: Grading, Utility, Concrete, and Boring. Counts and Dobyns recognized the need to serve the customer with all phases of work provided within one company. This has worked well with clients who prefer one contractor to complete the project. Utilizing one contractor keeps costs down, eliminates the middle man (subcontractor, therefore avoiding delays) and having only one firm to be held responsible in lieu of involving subcontractors. Leadership and accountability are within each division. Our company has grown to a work force of approximately 120 employees, of which the majority have been with the company for more than nine years and are very dedicated.
Our company has the ability to form at least six (6) crews and is capable of drilling, blasting and moving up to one million yards of dirt in a short time.
