Hubbard Construction Company celebrates its 100th Anniversary in 2020. The company was founded by Francis Evans Hubbard in 1920, and over the next century expanded to become one of Florida’s premier heavy civil construction contractors and asphalt suppliers. Today, Hubbard is made up of approximately 900 employees, with office locations in Tampa, Jacksonville, Lakeland, and Winter Park, Florida.
“100 years is a remarkable achievement and a major milestone in our company’s history,” says Tom Craft, Senior Vice President of Hubbard Construction Company. “We are excited to celebrate this moment, as an opportunity to reflect back on our accomplishments and the close relationships we have formed with in our communities. Hubbard’s legacy is entwined with Florida’s historic growth over the last century. This region is part of our identity, and vice versa.”
Throughout its 100 years in business, Hubbard has played an essential role in Florida’s growth and development. A founding member of the Asphalt Contractors Association of Florida, the company constructed the runway facilities at Orlando International Airport, and developed Cape Canaveral’s shuttle launch pads under contract by NASA in the 1950s. During the following decade, Hubbard helped to expand Florida’s roadway infrastructure with major contracts including I-10 in Lake City, the Florida Turnpike, and much of downtown Orlando.
Hubbard was involved in Florida’s boom period during the 1970s, developing sites for the Univ. of Central Florida and becoming a trusted contractor for Walt Disney World on projects including the Disney Monorail and Bay Lake Lagoon. As these and other developers brought increased traffic to Orlando and the surrounding areas of Florida, Hubbard met the need for more infrastructure with projects including the I-4 Expansion and construction of the East/West Expressway.
In the decades that followed, Hubbard expanded its business through acquisitions of Orlando Paving Company, Atlantic Coast Asphalt, Tampa Pavement Constructors, and most recently, a portion of Lane Construction now operating as Lakeland Paving. Hubbard also diversified its business lines to include landfill and material recycling services, which operate under Mid-Florida Materials business name.
Hubbard continues to serve Florida as a respected civil construction and asphalt paving contractor. Its founding commitment to providing superior quality and customer service remains central to the Hubbard name and identity. Hubbard is celebrating its 100th Anniversary with employee, customer, and community events throughout 2020.
