The Lebanon-based contractor has made the Cincinnati Business Courier’s Fast 55 four years in a row, starting in 2013. The com- pany’s revenues increased nearly tenfold between 2010 and 2012, from a little over $500,000 to $5.7 million. By 2015, revenues topped $21 million, and they’re still rising. Not bad for college buddies who just happened to see The Great Recession as an opportunity, rather than an obstacle. “We never dreamed it would be anything big,” said Matt Smith, co-owner and president of SiteWORX. “We were pouring patios and doing whatever we could to pay the bills.” Today, the company provides site development services including mass excavation, fine grading, underground utilities, and concrete curb and flatwork. Much of its work is for residential developers around Cincinnati, and SiteWORX also now manages public improvement and commercial projects. Smith credits a lot of SiteWORX’s phenomenal growth to the expanding economy, noting more work is available than a few years ago. The company has also grown market share by building solid relationships with developers such as Fischer Homes and M/I Homes, who hire SiteWORX again and again for new projects. But another factor that sets SiteWORX apart is the company’s willingness to embrace cutting-edge, industry technology, including intelligent Machine Control (iMC) equipment from Komatsu. SiteWORX was one of the first companies to buy a Komatsu iMC dozer from Columbus Equipment Company, and it recently purchased its fourth D61i iMC dozer. SiteWORX was also the first contractor in the United States to purchase, and put to work, Komatsu’s new PC490LCi-11 excavator. Smith sees plenty of reasons to make such a significant investment in iMC. “As much as anything, it’s an accuracy thing. iMC allows us to present a far better finished product than we were able to before,” he said. Being perfectly on grade the first time means less rework and remobilizations and helps keep projects on schedule. Machines with intelligent control also help ease issues caused by the tight labor market, which Smith describes as “pretty desperate right now.” “I can take someone A winning combination makes for smooth site development: SiteWORX’s 25-years-of-experience, Operator Byron Brodt, Komatsu PC490LCi-11 technology, and a Werk-Brau 4.7 cu. yd bucket.
