Our History

Staker Parson Companies was formed in 2001 when Staker Paving and Construction Company and Jack B. Parson Companies became partners.

In 1927, fifteen-year-old Jack B. Parson boarded a train and headed off to help his father build roads. That summer’s experience developed into a lifelong passion. After learning to operate every piece of equipment in the fleet, he was promoted to foreman and gained a wealth of experience in the construction business. In 1952, he founded Jack B. Parson Companies in Smithfield, Utah, and the company grew to become one of the largest providers of aggregates, asphalt, concrete, and general contracting services in the region.

In 1969, Stuart, Val, and Gordon Staker founded Staker Paving and Construction in Salt Lake City, Utah. From its humble beginning, the company grew to become Utah’s largest asphalt producer and paver.  Staker Parson’s Beck Street asphalt plant in Salt Lake City is one of the nation’s top-producing asphalt plants.

Staker Parson Companies is now the Intermountain Region’s leading construction materials and services provider employing over 2,600 people at more than fifty locations in Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada, and Arizona. We are a multiple year winner of Utah’s Best of State medal and have received numerous awards for our commitment to quality, service, and innovation.

From the parks you play in, to the roads you drive on, you can count on the Staker Parson team to deliver quality products and projects safely, timely, and efficiently.
