January 1948 – January 2013
Steve Watkins founded Watkins Industries in 1978 with his father Jesse. Watkins Industries has grown and evolved into what is now known as Watkins Services, Inc. Steve began his construction career working for his father as a teenager, and over the years developed one of the most trusted and respected names in the construction and remediation industry. Later in his career he began to be requested as an expert witness and repair cost estimator for construction litigation cases and thus began what became his true passion. He became one of the most trusted and respected construction consultants serving SC and NC.
That legacy continues today. Steve’s son, Steve “JR” Watkins had been working side by side with his father for many years. JR, now in the position of company president, is fully committed to continuing the same high standard of excellence set forth by his father.
