Mount Construction Founded
Dave Smith, a 23-year old vocational student, founded Mount Construction while living in a hotel room. Though trained in carpentry, Dave wanted to take a different path. He leaned on his relationships to perform house line clearing and excavation work.
Quickly adding utilities, concrete and paving, MOUNT moved largely to the public sector in 1994. From there, the business evolved into a utility center contractor with nearly 30 employees. In addition, MOUNT grew the day-to-day operations providing emergency services to multiple water departments, sewer divisions, and several southern NJ municipalities.
