Leadership & Experience

A.E. New, Jr.

Albert E. (Ned) New, Jr. Is President and sole stockholder of the Company. Ned majored in Economics at LaGrange College in LaGrange, Georgia. After completing his college education he joined the United States Air Force. Immediately thereafter, he joined a local construction company, Dyson and Company becoming chief estimator and senior project manager. Extensive experience was gained in multi family, wastewater treatment, military installations, governmental buildings, educational facilities and hospitals.

Ned left Dyson and Company to start A.E.New,Jr.,Inc in 1981. Early years were focused on educational facilities and military work in Northwest Florida. The Company's approach to construction is more vertical than most. The company employs many of its own employees to perform concrete work, structural steel erection, carpentry and door and window installation. On larger projects, where this is not practical, specialty foremen supervise subcontractor work in these trades. Both skilled and unskilled tradesmen are given paid time off and seasonal bonuses (when applicable) thereby effecting an extremely low workforce turnover.
