Jasper Celebrates Growth

BATON ROUGE, La. — Since ranking No. 1,743 on Inc. magazine’s 500|5,000 list in August, Jasper Contractors has continued its rapid growth throughout the nation. The company is now bringing multiple jobs to the Baton Rouge and New Orleans metro areas as part of its nationwide expansion efforts.

The 2012 Inc. 5,000 list is ranked according to percentage growth from 2008 through 2011. Jasper Contractors’ three-year growth amounted to 163 percent in gross sales and reflected earnings of over $42 million in revenue in 2011.

“We are honored and excited to be recognized as one of the Inc. 5,000 fastest growing companies in America,” said Brian Wedding, CEO of Jasper Contractors. “The sustained growth we have experienced within the last three years, despite the ailing economy, stems from our stringent focus on quality products, workmanship, and the highest level of customer service. Jasper is determined to become one of the premier contractors in the country while continuing to provide jobs and contribute to economic growth.”

Jasper’s expansion comes at a critical time due to the devastating effects of Hurricane Isaac leaving many homes with significant damage. Consequently, the increase in home insurance claims has brought along an influx of work.

“To ensure that we have enough manpower to match the rise in business, Jasper recruiters will be hosting job fairs and conducting interviews until our hiring goal has been met,” Wedding said. “Since appearing on the Inc. 5,000 list, we are approaching 2013 with a great deal of optimism and looking for the best candidates to join our team.”
