Our History

About Sherwood Companies

Our story began in 1934 in Kansas in the midst of the great depression when the Sherwood brothers bought their first truck crane. Now, nearly 90 years later, we are a family of nine companies, serving clients all across the country. Sherwood’s leadership and growth is centered on our core values of: safety, integrity, teamwork, excellence, and results.

We specialize in problem solving, customer service, and the development of long-term relationships. The Sherwood family of companies has a proven track record of completing projects using traditional design-bid-build or design-build, EPC and other collaborative/alternative construction delivery methods.

We have a strong team of construction professionals and the capability to both manage and self-perform on small and large projects of various types across the Midwest, particularly in the Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado and Nebraska markets. We serve both public and private sectors by delivering critical civil infrastructure projects to our customers and the communities in which we work and live including, but not limited to, urban expressways, bridges, underground utilities, concrete structures, asphalt/concrete paving and water/wastewater treatment plants.


Our Core Values






Sherwood Companies has the ability to self-perform many types of civil construction including earthwork and site prep, concrete and asphalt paving, civil and structural concrete, rock excavation, piling and sheet piling, subgrade stabilization, and water/waste-water treatment facilities. We also have a tremendous amount of experience with all underground utilities including sanitary sewer, water, storm sewer, and main electrical distribution.
Our Why
