Blois Construction celebrates its 45th year in business
Oxnard, CA (August 25, 2010) – Times are tough in the construction industry but here in Oxnard CA, Blois Construction is celebrating its 45th Anniversary as a company. Founded in Goleta, CA in 1965 by Bob Blois, Blois Construction, Inc. ®, based in Oxnard, CA, has retained the same core values and practices – an emphasis on quality of service and integrity as the backbone of its daily operations.
Blois is a heavy civil underground contractor and has been involved in a broad range of projects – sewer, water, storm drain, concrete structures and channels, treatment facilities, pump stations, etc. – in a variety of markets – commercial, industrial, school, infrastructure and residential – in Southern California. Project sizes can vary from $100,000 to $30 million.
Jim Blois, president and second-generation owner of the company, assumed control in 2003 in a buy out of his brother, Steve. Since the buy out, Blois has experienced significant growth and has effectively transitioned as a company to deal with the associated opportunities and challenges. With an emphasis on collaboration, teamwork, communication, and learning, Blois has made great strides in further strengthening its capabilities and competitiveness over both the short and the long run in the construction industry. As part of the milestone achievement, Jim Blois stated, “We are proud of the history and tradition at Blois and look forward to many years of service to the region.”
At the heart of Blois is the quality and character of its people, and the equal respect that is given to everyone, regardless of their position in the company. Everyone at Blois takes pride in its history of successful and safe projects and its reputation as a quality provider in the marketplace – neither of these would be possible without the collaborative and professional effort of all of its employees.
