Eleven Western Builders Celebrates 40 Years of Operation


Eleven Western Builders construction company celebrates 40 years

On January 25th of 2023, Eleven Western Builders, Inc. celebrated its 40th year in business. The company has been servicing the Western United States since 1983 and has come a long way since inception. Chairman and CEO, Rick Backus founded the company “with a dream and $2000 to his name”. After getting the company up and running, EWB solidified its name in construction, initially specializing in fast-track retail construction for the grocery and restaurant sectors.

Fast forward forty years, the company generates over $100 million in annual revenue and their areas of expertise have grown to include Shopping Centers, Hospitality, Car Washes, Quick Service Retail, and much more.

Brett Backus, Chief Operating Officer of the company, had this to say in a statement to the corporate family of Eleven Western Builders regarding the company’s 40 year anniversary –

“It is with great pride and excitement that I write to you today to celebrate our company’s 40thanniversary. For four decades, we have been dedicated to providing exceptional construction services to our clients… As we reflect on the past 40 years, we are reminded of all the incredible projects we have completed, the partnerships we have formed, and the growth and success we have achieved as a company. We are grateful for the trust and confidence our clients have placed in us, and we look forward to continuing to serve their needs in the future.”

EWB has been experiencing tremendous growth and success in recent years. Due to the increase in demand for their exceptional construction and maintenance services over the past two years, the company has established an office in Arizona and expanded their office and thus presence in Northern California. Leadership attributes the historical and continued success of the company to the fundamental core values that the company runs on.

  • Integrity at the core of everything we do
  • Commitment to delivering a consistent, professional and exceptional experience for each client
  • Quality we can be proud of
  • Commitment to providing a great place to work

To quote COO Brett Backus, one last time – “These are the principals that have been the foundation of our success over the past 40 years, and will continue to be the foundation that next 40 is built upon… On behalf of Eleven Western Builders, we extend our thanks and gratitude toward our clients and trade partners for their continued business and loyalty. It is not without you that we find ourselves celebrating this momentous occasion.”
