A Community-Focused Mindset
GH Phipps Wyoming (formerly Delta Construction) has proudly served Wyoming since 1975. Our company roots stem from a strong foundation built over years of service in the southern Wyoming region, initially in Laramie and Cheyenne. Upon the acquisition of Delta Construction in 2010, the Wyoming company was offered an exciting opportunity for the Wyoming employees to hold ownership in the company, something that wouldn’t have been an option previously.
GH Phipps Construction Companies has a long-standing reputation for constructing projects that make a difference in people’s lives–it was a natural fit for Delta, as goals were aligned with a focus on our communities. The wealth of knowledge and backing of such a company strengthened our ability to provide this great state with a premium service to our clients. GH Phipps Wyoming is still the same Wyoming-based resident company we have been throughout the years.
Delta Construction Established
Ed and Marguerite Graham founded Delta Construction. After serving in the Army, Ed worked for Deal Lumber Co., which later was renamed Deal Wallin Lumber. Ed purchased the lumber company and merged it to Delta Construction, Inc. Ed partnered with Ted Gertsch of Gertsch Baker Engineering & Design Partners until 1979. The Grahams were with Delta Construction until 1993, at which time Paul Hoffman became the new owner. Gregg Orr followed Paul in 2007.
GH Phipps Wyoming began implementing an official Safety Program along with computer-assisted services.
Gerald’s investment in his people and his company was consistent through the years. After Gerald’s passing in 1993, the company’s assets were transferred to a profit-sharing trust to establish Gerald’s legacy. In 2000, the trust became what is now the ESOP plan.
Delta Construction Acquisition
Greg Orr was the owner of Delta Construction at the time of acquisition. The values of the two companies were closely aligned, allowing the transition to GH Phipps Wyoming to go smoothly.
