Lee Hardy began his construction career with his family’s general contracting business, Hardy’s Construction Inc. where he was a fourth-generation family member and vice president for thirteen years. Hardy’s family business had its origins in 1950, when his great-grandfather, F. Lee Hardy, formed Lee Hardy and Son with the purchase of their first bulldozer. The company originally performed custom dozing work and soon evolved into farm-to-market road construction. As the generations of Hardy’s grew up, Lee Hardy and Son diversified into Hardy’s Construction Inc. which focused on highway transportation and local municipality projects.
The Phillips’ and Hardy’s were old family friends which led to Hardy’s Construction subcontracting work to Phillips Grading and Construction and laid the groundwork for a strong working relationship between these families. After Hardy’s Construction underwent a merger acquisition with another local contractor, Hardy remained for a five-year contract to support the estimating and project management divisions as a manager and consultant.
Following the completion of Hardy’s contract in 2007, he and the Phillips’ rekindled their working relationship, recognizing the unlimited potential for success when combining their talents, and formed Phillips Hardy Inc.
