In 1928, Bill and Frank Baldwin purchased a $200 used dump truck and entered the hauling business. 10 years later, the brothers earned their first state contract for backfilling the bulkheads at St. George Island. By 1942, the company incorporated, adding a few more dump trucks, a bulldozer and a handful of employees. Then, in 1950, Frank’s son Tom purchased his father’s share of the company and took the business in a new direction: road construction and excavating. The rest, as they say, is history.
For more than 80 years, our family business has earned its reputation as a leading commercial and residential contractor by providing service and quality that is second to none. It is this reputation and dedication to you, the customer, that has allowed us to thrive. Today, Reliable Contracting – now under the guidance of Tom’s son Jay – is Anne Arundel County’s largest site-work contractor, with more than 400 employees, 100 trucks and 250 pieces of earthmoving equipment.
