Mr. Joseph M. Fahey founded J. M. Fahey Construction in 1971. After establishing a solid foundation by gradually pursuing larger jobs in the early years, the Company entered the cold milling market in 1979.
In 1984, J. M. Fahey Construction Company acquired its first asphalt plant in Kansas City, Kansas. This plant allowed Fahey to work closely with municipalities in Johnson, Wyandotte and Leavenworth Counties, and the Kansas Department of Transportation, on their hot-mix asphalt requirements. J. M. Fahey Construction Company next acquired a concrete paving spread that provided additional capabilities for high-type slipform concrete paving in 1988. Fahey is especially proud of the fact that our concrete paving operations have won local and national awards for quality in each of the last five decades.
During the summer of 1988, 900 acres of quarry ground was acquired in northern Cass County, just south of the metropolitan area. Beyer Crushed Rock Co. is the Fahey business entity at this location. Beyer is a major aggregate supplier to Fahey jobsites and asphalt plants in addition to supplying hundreds of customers throughout the area.
Fahey purchased a second asphalt plant in Kansas City, Missouri in the spring of 1989 and established a Missouri side asphalt presence. The 1990’s were a period of acclimation and growth for Fahey. Key personnel joined the Company and a new headquarters building was constructed on the Grandview property in 1999. The Fahey website was introduced in 2000.
J. M. Fahey Construction Company has grown in size and stature since 1971. We are proud of the work we do in providing highway and heavy construction infrastructure to the citizens of Missouri and Kansas. We are equally proud of the aggregates and asphalt materials that we supply to our customers throughout the greater Kansas City area.
J. M. Fahey Construction Company has worked for over five decades to earn our reputation as a quality construction organization. Our goal is to continually improve our Company…as we address the opportunities and challenges of the next fifty years!
