MJ Price Construction Co., Inc. was founded by the late Marion Jackson Price and Barbara Inscoe Price of Roanoke Rapids, NC in 1971. The business began with 2 Flatbed Dump Trucks, 1 back-hoe, 1 Tractor and 4 full time employees and was primarily focused on General Building Contracting.
Over the years MJ Price and his wife, Barbara I. Price made a gradual transition from the building industry into the civil construction arena while procuring more heavy equipment and trucks to expand capabilities and offer customers more diverse services. Mr. Price believed in performing quality work, at a fair price, in a timely manner while maintaining a safe work environment for his dedicated employees. By the late 1970’s, MJ Price was increasingly catering to large industry in the area such as Champion International Paper Co, Coastal Lumber, and Timberlands. Following the death of Mr. Price in 1997, Barbara I. Price continued the business operation until her death in 2010. Following the death of Mrs. Price, the business continued to be owned and operated by Lauren S. Price and her husband, Mason J. Price.
Today, MJ Price Construction Co., Inc has over 100 employees in the Roanoke Valley area and operates over 75 Class A trucks and over 200 plus pieces of heavy equipment in order to offer customers a number of different services in the site construction, site preparation, land maintenance, and industrial maintenance fields. Although, the business has grown and expanded from those first few pieces of equipment, it remains to be operated with the same morals, dedication and work ethic that MJ Price instilled over 40 years ago.
These values are still engrained in the company today which allow the performance of quality work in a competitive, timely, and safe manner while building and maintaining lasting relationships within the industry.
