Georgia’s been on our mind for more than 75 years, since our company’s founding in 1946. In that time, we’ve helped build countless infrastructure projects that shape the face of our home state.

Safety is the foundation of our mission to help people build great lives. Without it, no other part of our company stands. Our safety culture is strengthened by the practices and discussions that take place daily among our teams—like Job Safety Analysis, Near Miss Reporting, and certified safety training. C.W. Matthews protects its team members’ safety so they never have to compromise the lives they’ve built for themselves and their families.Learn More
