The Kearney Companies’ has been owned and operated by the Kearney Family since 1956.
Kearney first made a name for itself as a small earthmoving company in the early fifties. Prior to entering the construction business, Wes Kearney, founder of KCC worked for a leading boiler plant manufacturer that required him to travel extensively. Not wanting to leave his wife Joanne home alone with their three young sons, Bryan, Barry and Bing, Wes Kearney quit his job. That day he purchased his first bulldozer was the day he began what would become the Kearney family of companies.
Wes Kearney wasn’t a stranger to hard work and dedicated himself to long hours each day and often six and seven day work weeks. Wife Joanne worked alongside him handling the invoicing and company paperwork. As people of great integrity combined with a strong work ethic, Wes and Joanne built their companies and established long lasting relationships throughout the community.
