Building an Eckman Legacy

Construction has been in the Eckman family for close to 100 years. Edward Eckman started as a general contractor in the 1920s. In 1938, Edward’s son Harvey founded Harvey W. Eckman Construction. The company built service stations for all the major oil companies in most of the western states. Harvey’s philosophy was placing the client’s needs first and providing the highest level of integrity.

Harvey passed both his love of construction and his philosophy on to his son, Gary L. Eckman. Gary grew up going to job sites and started working in the field at a young age. By the age of 25 he was working as a superintendent for Harvey W. Eckman Construction.

Eventually, Gary bought Harvey out and started what we know as Eckman Construction today. Gary remains the CEO/ Owner of the company. He has passed his legacy on to his sons, Eric and Cooper Eckman.

Today, Eric is the President of Eckman Construction. His son Zach is a Project Manager with the company, and his daughter Tiffanee is Senior Financial Manager. Gary’s son Cooper is a licensed contractor and Project Engineer.
