Our History

Scott & Ritter, Inc. is the direct descendant of the utility division of Scotty’s Contracting, Inc. Scotty’s Contracting formed back in 1972 and the utility division separated as its own entity in 1982. That entity began with a contract entered into by Jim Scott and the manager of his utility division, Larkin Ritter, thus creating Scott & Ritter, Inc. In 1988, Larkin Ritter purchased all outstanding stock held in the company and became the sole owner.

Over the years, we have developed into one of the premier heavy utility construction companies in the region. We have evolved to perform much more than just utility work, including site development, grade and drain, demolition services, mechanical utilities, engineering solutions and much more. We have worked very hard to become solidified as one of the preferred civil contractors for many public and private institutions, as well as several municipal organizations.
