Merrick Construction's Founder, Max Milton Merrick

In 1948, Max Milton Merrick started our heavy highway construction business with the purchase of one used dragline and 3 employees. During his leadership, he placed an emphasis on family values, honesty, integrity, safety, quality, & timeliness.  Consequently, our reputation as a good business has helped us perform projects in a range of $10 to $30 million with a labor force of approximately 80 employees.

Merrick Construction, LLC, License # 568, partners with the Louisiana Department of Transportation, the United States Army Corps of Engineers, and various municipal government agencies to produce projects that are safe, within the owner’s budget, and are ahead of schedule.  Our projects include the construction of utility corridors, airports, boat launches, box culverts, highways & bridges, wastewater treatment plants, levees, floodwalls, and pumping stations.  

Our foundation and continued success is a direct result of our employees.  Our people make the difference and separate us from other contractors.  If you consider yourself a competent “A” player who is defined by your honesty, integrity, efficiency, productivity, and persistence, then join the Merrick Team and make yourself the next big difference maker in this award winning business’ successful future.
