Leighton A. White ~ Founder, Company Vice President, Semi-Retired
In 1978, Leighton White had a special “project” on his mind - to create a custom farming business that would provide services of the highest integrity and quality to its clients. The company quickly progressed into providing complete sitework services, and in keeping with the commitment to his initial vision, Leighton built a team of intelligent, hard-working employees dedicated to safety in the workplace. Early on, he saw the value of creating a network of loyal employees, suppliers, subcontractors, and engineers to provide an effective, above-standard response to our customers’ needs.
Leighton brought to this “project” a 25 year career in the Real Estate/Engineering Department at PSNH (now Eversource). He specialized in real estate acquisitions, powerline layout, and coordination with field engineers and surveyors. In 2005, Leighton White received the 9th annual New Hampshire Construction Industry Ethics Award. To this day, he remains very active in the company, sharing his consulting, marketing, and financial expertise.
The company name itself portrays his stamp of approval on this ongoing “project”!
