In 1991, following a successful 21 year-long career in his family’s business, Hal Hays founded Hal Hays Forestry with 1 bulldozer, 1 excavator, and 1 truck, and began work in forestry services, wildland firefighting, and ecosystem rehabilitation.

In 2002, seeking more challenge, Hal established Hal Hays Construction, Inc. (HHCI) to provide heavy civil construction, utility work, road rehabilitation, recreational area development, and wetland restoration to county and local governments.

 

HHCI…Award-Winning Design Build Firm

By 2007, through hard work and perseverance, the HHCI team was successfully designing, constructing and modernizing critical facilities and infrastructure for all branches of the Department of Defense, US Homeland Security, US Veterans Affairs, US Forest Service, and the National Park Service.

Our portfolio grew to include hospitals, airfields, utilities, roadways, training camps, secured facilities, bomb targets, hangars, towers, aircraft wash racks, armories, barracks, battalion headquarters, electrical transmission, bridges, dining halls, and educational facilities.

Whatever the mission called for, HHCI answered!

 

HHCI…Fast Growth & Industry Recognition

Over the following years we continued to grow and diversify, adding many Fortune 500 firms and Public Utility agencies as clients, representing some of the largest customers of general and civil construction in the world!

In 2011, HHCI graduated to ‘large business’ status following its highly successful SBA 8(a) and HUBZone programs, HHCI’s hard work generated 33 five-year contracts for general construction and civil work, valued at $3.3B in potential program value; dedicated and accomplished team members; and hundreds of satisfied clients.

By achieving these great results our team earned recognition from leading publications like INC Magazine and Engineering News-Record for our fast growth and industry accomplishments. Even during challenging economic times, HHCI proudly earned “Top Contractor” and “Fast Growth Company” rankings numerous years in a row.

 

HHCI…the Next Generation, Onward & Upward

HHCI celebrates the next generation of leadership from the Hays family, Kirby Hays, our CEO & President. In the footsteps of his father, and with experience in all aspects of business from labor to project management to operations, Kirby is already contributing to our success.

Just one example is our newest division, Heritage Trucking, a materials and equipment transportation firm, already serving some of the largest rail constructors, road builders, and rail lines in California.

In true entrepreneurial spirit, Kirby always stands ready for the next opportunity to serve a key industry.
