Morris, Inc. began business in 1970 and is owned by Milton and Dawn Morris and their five children.  Milton started the company by designing and installing intakes, pipelines, and pivots for farmers and other governmental agencies located throughout South Dakota, North Dakota, and Nebraska along the Missouri River.  Since this time, Morris, Inc. has grown into a diversified Highway-Heavy-Utility company performing various and complex projects.  We employ approximately 150 full-time employees and at peak times during the summer we employ over 200.

Morris, Inc. is a member of the South Dakota Associated General Contractors Highway-Heavy-Utilities Chapter and we pride ourselves in safe, timely, and efficient work.  We have an asphalt concrete laydown crew and an asphalt concrete plant that mostly stays in Pierre, but we do mobilize it to other areas of South Dakota when the opportunity arises.  cement plantWe also have a permanent concrete redi-mix plant located Ft. Pierre as well as a portable concrete redi-mix plant.  We make all of our own asphalt concrete and concrete aggregate material, along with all other types of aggregate base material for federal, state, local, or private construction projects.  Additionally, we produce aggregate material for large asphalt concrete paving mainline contractors on SD DOT asphalt concrete overlay projects throughout the entire central part of South Dakota.  Furthermore, we crush and screen gravel for most of the counties and Indian Reservations located in the central part of the state. 

Morris, Inc. also has several utility crews equipped with many different sizes of Caterpillar excavators, dozers, and compactors.  Additionally, we have gravel laydown crews, along with an earthwork and site grading crew consisting of Caterpillar scrapers, dozers, blades, and haul trucks.  It should also be noted that most of our earthwork and site grading equipment is equipped with GPS technology which enables us to be more efficient and allows the owner to save a large amount of money by eliminating surveying, staking and other associated engineering fees.  We have a full-time engineering technician/surveyor on staff that handles all of our GPS responsibilities.  As you can imagine, by performing all of this work we are able to provide the owner with a competitive bid package and complete these items of work in a very timely and safe manner.

Additionally, we recently constructed a manufacturing plant where we manufacture conveyors, screens, jigs, and other related aggregate producing equipment, along with having a full-service machine shop.  We are also capable of repairing pumps and rewinding electric motors.  Furthermore, Morris, Inc. creates specialized granite headstones, tables, and countertops.
