Austin Industries has been ranked among the top private U.S.-based companies by Forbes magazine, its first such achievement. In the annual listing of the largest privately held companies in America, Austin ranked at #191 out of 246 total companies evaluated by Forbes. Amongst privately held construction companies, Austin ranks #29 in the nation, and #2 in Texas.
The listing marks a pivotal moment for Austin, to be recognized among the largest and most influential private companies in the U.S. We take special pride in the fact that our company is 100% privately held by our employee-owners.
“This recognition is a direct testimonial to the dedication of our exemplary employee-owners,” said David B. Walls, President & CEO, Austin Industries. “Because of the ownership mindset of our people, we continue to excel throughout the country and across our diverse projects.”
The publication notes the improvement in the construction section overall, as the industry has rebounded well from pandemic-related shutdowns and supply chain constraints.
Congratulations to all Austin employee-owners on this important national recognition!
