MidasMidas is growing rapidly thanks to acquisitions and new markets.

By Mark Lawton, Senior Editor at Knighthouse Publishing

In the past year alone, Midas Companies has acquired two firms and entered new markets. And it plans to keep growing.

Midas installs, rehabilitates and repairs underground utilities for water, wastewater, stormwater and industrial fluids. The company was founded in 1972 and focused on municipal work for decades, but since 2015 it has diversified into industrial settings and the federal government. “We have diversified our revenue streams, focused on smoothing out the market vacillations that occur in construction, making ourselves more valuable in the market,” CEO Dan Cathell says.

Boudreau Pipeline Corp.’s relationships with its vendors, customers and employees have allowed the company to thrive for the past 20 years. 

“I think focusing on people is the biggest reason for our success,” President Alan Boudreau says. “We understand that relationships are the most important thing in our business, and maintaining those relationships is our biggest motivator.”

Boudreau traces his construction experience back to 1996 when he purchased his first backhoe and started a company called A&B Equipment. Boudreau and his wife Christie ran the business out of their home and Boudreau served as its owner-operator.

After a year of working on his own, one of Boudreau’s clients asked him to bid on a pipeline project. Although he was not experienced with pipeline work at the time, he was awarded the project. This led to the launch of Boudreau Pipeline Corp. and the hiring of his first employee, Abel Macias, who still works with the company as a foreman. A few other employees have worked for the company for as long as 17 years, he notes.

The Fayetteville Outer Loop involves the construction of a new 6.8-mile stretch of interstate including 17 new bridges and more than six miles of new interchange highway. Included in the highway portions are three major interchanges, two of which serve as key entrances to Fort Bragg.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) awarded the project to Conti in late summer 2014 and work began that fall. The project is on schedule to meet its October 2018 completion date, despite an unusually cold and wet winter that saw two rare North Carolina snowfalls. “It has certainly compressed the project’s schedule,” Project Executive Chris Conerly says.

With a large market presence in the Northeast, Conti has found a great deal of success building distributed generation solar facilities. DG facilities are generally under 20 megawatts (MW) in size. “The DG market is unique in New England. Conti’s ability to leverage its extensive infrastructure, deep solar expertise and flexibility has expanded our opportunities,” Regional Manager Sean Harrington said.

“Contractors entering the DG market may struggle with inherent fast pace of solar projects [with] their intricate complexities,” he says. “Our turnkey services, $1.2 billion bonding capacity, cost management and seasoned leadership has led to The Conti Group’s leading position within this market. It has also spurred our growth into newer DG and utility scale solar markets in Minnesota, the West Coast and Southeastern United States.”
