A Legacy of 'Playing in the Dirt'

Today’s version of Morgan Contractors Inc. – with 50 employees and over 100 pieces of heavy equipment – began in 1948 when Cecil Morgan Sr. launched a home-grown success story with one big bulldozer and a little start-up capital.

What most people call “site grading, excavation, street improvements, storm drainage and building demolition,” the Morgans refer to as “playing in the dirt.”

Earthmoving Projects of Today

Morgan Contractors’ resume of projects includes site work for commercial and industrial projects, Montgomery County Schools and Fort Campbell military installation. The company has been engaged in hundreds of miles of Interstates, highways and local roads including every major traffic artery into Clarksville. It helped set the stage for commerce with site grading for malls and shopping centers. After the tornado of January 1999 destroyed sections of Clarksville, Morgan Contractors cleared the destruction and assisted with rebuilding.

Today, the company is led by Cecil Sr.’s four sons who joined the business in the 1970s: David Morgan, President; Gene Morgan, Vice President; Don Morgan, Vice President; Cecil Morgan Jr., Secretary-Treasurer.
