About Barrett

The Beginning of Barrett Industries

In the 1850s, our founder, Samuel E. Barrett, saw the need for new and innovative solutions for America’s expanding roadway system. Throughout Barrett Industries’ more than 160-year history, his innovative spirit has driven our ongoing efforts to meet the needs of our customers. We are proud to always rise to the challenge, whether it involves paving an Interstate, constructing a new regional airport, or finding ways to preserve the country’s four million miles of paved highways.

Today, Barrett Industries is a family of subsidiary companies that work together to provide a diverse range of services to meet customers’ paving and construction needs. Throughout our operation, our employees are committed to providing our customers with unmatched products, services—and solutions.

Barrett Industries is a subsidiary of Colas USA, part of a larger group of companies under Colas SA – the worldwide leader in transportation infrastructure construction and maintenance.
