Our Mission

A reflection of our mission - we are providers of superior, passionate service leaving a positive impact on everyone we involve, while bringing honor to God - we are driven to help our employees grow professionally, but more importantly, help them become better fathers, mothers, and community members.

Never forgetting where we came from, we’re committed to giving back to the community that gave so much. Whether it’s helping local soup kitchens, volunteering at local rec. departments, contributing to scholastic scholarship funds, or joining local civic and economic boards, we support the communities we work in.

Core Values

Still relevant today, our success is based on the interaction of four core values:

We honor our customers, employees, subcontractors, suppliers, and the communities we work in.

We adapt work practices to keep our company on the cutting edge.

We are devoted to the safety of our employees, customers, and industry partners.

We make every decision with integrity, in alignment with our mission.

Our Story

Starting out as a fencing and barn builder, Joel Davis founded this company in 1997 after hiring a high school friend. Known for honoring a commitment and reliable delivery, their construction portfolio grew as light projects turned into heavier ones.

Following this, after seeing an opportunity to add value, heavy equipment was purchased, and in-house crews were established to perform grading and other services.

Several years later, after recognizing an industry need for safe and efficient facility and maintenance support, the company diversified to provide industrial services.

Now, overseeing three divisions across the Southeast, JDavis Inc. is proud to announce New Terrain Grading, JDavis Construction, and JDI Industrial Services.
