Specialty Contractor of the Year
BakerTriangle has been selected the 2018 Specialty Contractor of the Year in Texas/Louisiana by ENR magazine. ENR writes, “Originally founded in 1974 by Bob Baker as two separate companies—Baker Drywall and Triangle Plastering—in 2006, the two entities merged, becoming Baker Triangle. Baker Triangle’s regional revenue grew by $30 million in 2017, to a total of $181 million. That growth continues through 2018, as the contractor’s revenue is tracking 30% ahead of last year. While 2017 was “incredible,” Steve Baker, company chairman, says it could have been even better.“Although we grew $30 million, it could have easily been $100 million,” he says, citing the firm’s steady approach to expanding its workforce. “We like to serve our [existing] customers instead of expanding into regions where maybe the work is there, but it’s not necessarily our customer or our labor base. We want to be able to handle the needs that our clients might have instead of trying to just grow business.”” Next year will mark the 45th year in business for BakerTriangle.
