The company quickly established a reputation for excellence, providing personalized service and high quality construction standards, which in turn motivated repeat business and strong customer relationships.

Over the next few years, the company successfully completed an increasing profile of new construction and renovation projects, ranging in scope from public buildings to retail outlets; banks to hotels; and from schools to distribution centers. Our strong backbone of experience and network of growing clientele has increased our project scope to include a portfolio of hospitals, assisted living and multi-family housing; and we now perform work throughout the Southern United States.

Today, EBCO is one of the top general contracting firms in Texas. Our corporate headquarters have remained in Cameron, TX. EBCO is known for their service excellence, specialized skills, and outstanding safety record in commercial construction.
