Family Business

Durr is proud to be in its 3rd generation of ownership and management. Founded by Edward Durr in 1955, the company has since been owned by Durr’s daughter and is now owned by her children. As a family business, the company still honors the original values Mr. Durr instilled in it over 60 years ago: integrity, safety, quality, teamwork, commitment and faith. These values ensure an ideal environment for our clients and our Durr team.

Woman-Owned Business

Durr has been woman-owned since Durr’s daughter purchased the business almost 40 years ago. We take great pride in having female ownership and leadership. We also enjoy welcoming more women into the construction industry.

Durr is certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) as a Woman-Owned Business. As a certified WBE/WOSB, we are pleased to help our customers with their supplier diversity programs.

By including women-owned businesses among their vendors, companies and government entities demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.
