Joslin Construction is, quite simply, dedicated to the client. Ray Joslin founded the company in 1973 with the goal of delivering exceptional site construction services to the construction industry. Over the years we’ve adapted the services and products we offer to better meet the individual needs of our clients, while still maintaining the same quality we began with. By doing business the old fashioned way - with hard work, responsibility, and above all else, integrity - Joslin Construction has grown to become a respected leader in the site construction market for Texas.
Each member of the Joslin team is humbled by the trust that our clients put in us, and thankful for the blessings we’ve been granted. We embrace the belief that “to whom much is given, much is expected” (Luke 12:48) and take pleasure in giving back to our community. Joslin Construction proudly supports a number of local organizations including FFA groups, sports teams, ministries, and many others.
Joslin Construction, founded in 1973, in Porter, Texas, is a family owned and operated company. Joslin began primarily in site utilities by doing maintenance and simple improvement projects for larger municipal and city utility districts focusing on quality work and building relationships with our clients. Joslin found opportunities to expand the business to the commercial market and began the growth of the utility division. In 2010, the earthwork division was added to the company, focusing on large infrastructure projects for industrial clients, school districts, hospitals and large retail clients. In 2014, we expanded again by adding the concrete division, which allowed Joslin to promote a turn-key service for all site infrastructure projects.
