Bowen History

Bowen stands as it is today based on the hard work of countless team members. Bowen’s first project was a wastewater treatment plant in
Brookston, IN (pictured above).

Since 1967, Bowen has been providing opportunities for people to grow through construction. Bob Bowen founded the organization with the belief that focusing on people and sharing opportunity was the right way to grow a business.

Today, Doug Bowen carries this legacy forward. Bowen employs over 275 full-time employees working across the country and stands by its core purpose of growing people.
