Who We Are
The Springfield Contractors Association was formed in 1953 with the purpose of improving relationships and conditions and promoting quality throughout our industry. Our 400 member firms represent the broad scope of our local construction scene and employ nearly 10,000 people in our area, which is expanding to include the entire Southwest Missouri region.
It is the mission of the Springfield Contractors Association to further the interests of the local construction industry, while at the same time providing a safe work environment for employees and the general public. We further strive to cultivate working relationships with local government agencies, community leaders, architects and engineers. Fulfillment of this mission is pivotal to the development of our community.
