Our Company

In 1972, Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. began with a single piece of construction equipment, one employee and a straightforward business philosophy: being in business tomorrow means satisfying our customers today. Since then, our company has expanded to become a regionally recognized construction company with successful projects in five states.

With offices in Kansas City, Springfield, Mo., and Columbia, Mo., ESS continues to honor the principles of customer service initiated by Co-founder and President Billy Sapp. Employee-owned since 1999, our more than 500 employees are committed to meeting our clients’ need for excellence.

Our Vision

To be recognized as the leading infrastructure contractor throughout the Midwest region.

  • Clients will return to the company with future work.
  • Employees will be proud to work for Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. and will benefit from that association.
  • The company will expand its market share in all areas of endeavor.
  • The foundations of tomorrow will be built on the efforts of Emery Sapp & Sons, Inc. today.
