The Log Cabin Democrat is presenting a series of businesses that have a unique story to tell. To view the publication from June 15, which includes the first 50, click here.

Nabholz is a Conway company built on a solid foundation of hard work, integrity, family and community.

Celebrating its 65th anniversary this year, Nabholz continues to operate with a service-first mindset — always taking care of its customers, employees and communities. 

Nabholz team members show pride in their work, whether it involves a $43 door repair, construction of a world-class museum, tornado relief efforts or installation of a 120,000-pound piece of machinery.

Bob Nabholz started the company in 1949 when he built a home for his bride-to-be. 

Today, Nabholz has more than 800 employees in 11 offices in five different states. The company has been ranked among Engineering News-Record’s Top 400 Contractors for 28 years straight, most recently at No. 158.

With a diversity of expertise and experience uncommon in their industry, the Nabholz team can work on a wide range of projects, large and small. 

And they don’t just build buildings. Nabholz’ services go far beyond building construction and include professional industrial services like equipment moving, rigging and installation, environmental assessments, consulting and abatement, excavation, utility work and highway construction for both public and private clients, architectural millwork and cabinetry fabrication and installation, emergency service and maintenance and a whole lot more. No matter the size or scope of a project, Nabholz has the experts on hand to get the job done.

Also, the Nabholz team prides itself on taking on some of the country’s most complex and challenging projects. 

For example, when building Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the company utilized materials and methods never before used. 

They also installed the oscillating orchestra pit for the Miami Philharmonic Symphony — quite a feat considering that the 18 articulated platforms had to be installed so that they would raise and lower in absolute silence during performances.

When it comes to keeping the team happy, Nabholz has a winning plan that incorporates wellness and education as two key components. 

The company has a very successful corporate wellness program with four full-time wellness staff members. 

In addition, Nabholz University offers in-house training for employees with programs like Leadership Nabholz and Arkansas’ first U.S. Department of Labor-approved in-house carpentry apprenticeship program. 

For more than 40 years, Nabholz University has been successful in keeping the best of the best in the construction industry right here in Arkansas.
