About Us

We don’t hire people to build great roads—we build roads to hire great people.

Robert “Bob” Ellsworth started Ellsworth Construction in Northeastern Oklahoma in 1974. Beginning as a paving and sealcoating company, our specialties have expanded to meet our clients’ growing needs over the years—allowing us to become a total site solution.

Over the past 45+ years in service, we’ve been obsessed with two things:

  1. The happiness of our employees’ families
  2. Delivering the highest-quality and lowest-stress road construction project services for our clients

Quality Starts From Within

The secret sauce of Ellsworth Construction is in our family of dedicated and hardworking professionals. All of our team members’ input, regardless of division or skillset, is heeded and contributes to our decision-making process.

Safety is Paramount

At Ellsworth Construction, there is no such thing as corner-cutting—and our philosophy of safety exemplifies this to the highest degree. As a company obsessed with employee well-being, protecting our family of professionals is critical. Additionally, our dedication to safety extends to those directly or indirectly involved with our construction projects. Our commitment to safety has resulted in a maintained zero-accident culture.

How Do We Maintain Safety?

Training

All of our foremen have completed the advanced OSHA 30 Outreach Training Program, as outlined by the Department of Labor. OSHA 30 incorporates safety training surpassing many industry standards.

Safety Meetings

The operating protocol required of all Ellsworth Construction crews requires daily safety meetings where the day’s work precautions are carefully reviewed and verified.

Our History

Ellsworth grew out of as “Ellsworth Bros truck lines”. Levoy, Charles and John started the business in 1946. Their first big contract was hauling asphalt for the Ok State Highway Dept in 1951 which began construction on the Turner Turnpike and grew in the 50’s and 60’s transporting materials for the expansion of Tinker Air Force Base.

From there, Charles’s son, Bob branched off on his own doing more sealcoating and pavement maintenance.

In 2004, Bob’s son, Nathan joined the company and we became the full service road construction company covering total site solutions.
