Company History

Paulson Construction was established as Paulson Excavating

in 1977. Early projects were primarily for private clients. As the company grew, underground utility projects for Pacific Bell and Pacific Gas & Electric became a specialty. Additionally, public work for cities, counties, special districts and the State began to grow. The company employs 15 key individuals with the work force expanding to as many as 75 according to project needs. Because of the company’s longevity, and the many satisfied customers, Paulson Construction has become one of the most reputable construction companies of its kind.

In order to be a respected and trusted citizen of the business community, Paulson Construction maintains a firm commitment to full compliance with all laws and regulations and to the highest standards of ethical business conduct. Our commitment to policy compliance and business ethics is unwavering.
