Overview of Fisher Sand & Gravel and Fisher Companies

Jul 01, 2019Angela Murphy

Rewind 100 years and you’ll find yourself at the beginning of what is now known as Fisher Companies. Since that time, we have worked tirelessly to provide superior service to clients in order to achieve 100 percent customer satisfaction. With an emphasis on safety, integrity and strengthening the communities we work in, Fisher Companies has found and continues to find success in the construction industry.

Originally founded in Midland, Michigan in 1925, Fisher Companies was just a single-company operation on leased land in a gravel pit. We started work as a ready-mix concrete supplier and sand-and-gravel operation in our early years, providing materials to contracting services in the mid-Michigan area. After 22 years, Fisher Companies found its first official home on purchased land from the Dow Chemical Company. At this point Ralph Fishers three sons had taken over after World War II and saw a large potential for growth.

Less than 10 years later and continues today, Fisher companies continues to expand. With Ralph Fisher’s vision that a sand and gravel company should include concrete services, the company began to grow and hasn’t stopped. From concrete to transportation to aggregates to golf clubs, we have found areas of need across Michigan and filled them. Although we’ve grown, we continue to provide the highest quality of services to our customers. Because we started with just a family, we strive to provide family-friendly service and personalized customer service, with the benefits and capabilities of a large corporation.
