HOW WE GOT STARTED
Throughout middle and high school, Brody Baxter spent evenings and summer breaks doing construction. “This is where I started learning the trades” he reflects. After graduating high school, Brody began working for a framing contractor. It was there that he started working with his cousin, Sean Monaghan. Together, they learned all aspects of construction.
Brody enjoyed construction and business so much that he got his contractor’s license and started Baxter Builders in 2002, only one year after graduating high school. His first employee was Sean who is now General Manager and Lead Estimator. “Sean’s work ethic and management skills would become a crucial part to our company’s success. We went to work framing custom homes all over central Oregon. Our crew typically averaged about 4 to 6 guys. Our areas of expertise was in framing which led us into general contracting custom homes and commercial projects.” says Brody.
As the Economy started to slow down Brody had to start spending more time looking for work to keep the guys busy. “I started working in my home office more just bidding jobs and drumming up work, while Sean was running and managing all the work in the field.” Residential work had almost come to a halt, so they started bidding on commercial and public works projects. After they landed several commercial jobs, the company started to grow and by the end of the recession Baxter Builders had grown to about 60 employees.
The company quickly grew to about 90 employees which is where they are today.
“I believe that hard work, integrity, knowledge, professionalism, and great communication skills have all helped to make this company what it is today.”
