Richard E. Smith established the company in 1952. Since then, his sons and grandsons have joined, with Dick Smith serving as president and his younger bother, Dave, serving as vice president.

“We have contributed a large number of buildings” not only to Joplin but throughout the Four-State Area, Dick Smith said, with 8,000 projects completed across eight states.

“They were small at first, but they keep getting bigger and bigger.”

“It certainly is a milestone,” added Dave Smith. “We’re certainly proud to keep the same business open for that long and under the same name.”

As the years passed by, much of what the Smiths began to see was their own work shaping the city where their company was founded, and still operate out of today.

“It really makes me feel good to drive through Carthage, Springfield and of course Joplin, and see all the project’s that we’ve built and all that our company has done to contribute to the landscape, especially here in Joplin,” said Dick Smith, President of  Smith Construction Company.

 Smith is a family business, dating back to 1952 when Dick Smith’s father, Richard Smith started the business out of the family garage with just one other employee.
