Our History

Glover Construction was founded in the early 1950s by John Glover. With a commitment to integrity and a strong work ethic, Glover Construction is one of the largest mass excavation firms working on the east coast today.

Glover Construction was founded in the 1950s by John Glover, who started his life of hard, honest work during the Great Depression by hauling sand to his grandmother’s smokehouse for a penny a load using a goat-drawn cart.

When the senior Glover was older, he began work in the earthmoving and logging business before buying his first Cat D2 and building what would eventually become the Glover Construction of today. His two sons followed him into the business and, later, his granddaughter.

Over the years, other professionals have joined the Glovers to form a leadership team with unmatched experience and a loyal and dedicated group of employees.

While Glover Construction has grown into one of the largest mass excavation firm working on the east coast today, a few things have not changed. The work-ethic, pride in the Glover Construction name, and a commitment to always doing an outstanding job have remained constant.
