From humble beginnings in Smithfield in 1952, Staker Parson Companies has grown to become one of Utah’s leading suppliers of quality sand, rock, landscape products, ready-mixed concrete, asphalt, paving and construction services. The company is a 13-time Utah Best of State medal winner, former Utah Manufacturer of the Year and is the Engineering News Record’s 2015 Mountain States General Contractor of the Year.
The company’s history began in 1927 when 15-year-old Jack B. Parson boarded a train and headed off to help his father build roads. That summer’s experience developed into a lifelong passion for Jack as he quickly learned to operate every piece of equipment in the fleet and gained a wealth of experience in the construction industry. In 1952, Jack founded Jack B. Parson Companies in Smithfield. With a vision to supply quality construction materials and expert construction services, the company grew to become one of the largest of its kind in Utah and Idaho.
