Shelby Erectors, Inc. has been in business since April 1, 1997. The company is the sole entity of Jennifer Nix, who serves as the Owner and President. We’re a labor subcontractor that specializes in bridge construction – specifically, the installation of reinforcing steel and Stay-In-Place metal decking.
Shelby Erectors, Inc. became a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) certified Disadvantaged Business Entity (DBE) on August 6, 2010. This distinction is analyzed and renewed annually and must be qualified for in order to maintain its standing.
Shelby Erectors currently has over 200 employees that are on job sites across the state of Florida. We maintain contracts that range in length from several months to over six years and vary from thousands of dollars to millions.
Commitment to Technology
Shelby Erectors takes great pride in our innovative methods of operation. We have a commitment to technology and make sure we’re always moving forward with the times. Therefore, we’re a completely paperless company and provide our Supervisors and Foreman with tablets and applications on their smartphones. This allows them to submit all forms to administration and contractors electronically.
We take pride in our Safety Program which is a priority in our daily operations. Our Safety Program is also highly innovative and paperless. It provides information through technology that is both succinct and accountable. For example, anyone can obtain our safety certifications on any job site for any employee via barcodes. Our commitment to safety and technology go hand-in-hand in propelling Shelby Erectors, Inc. to a higher level in our industry.
Shelby Erectors has taken the initiative of maintaining an apprentice training program. As a result, we’ll attract new workers to our craft. We have employees who are certified instructors with the NCCER Craft Training Program and teach apprentices the Reinforcing Steel craft – both through book learning and fieldwork.
We have partnered with Adaptive Constructive Solutions, Inc. (ACS). This organization recruits United States Veterans to enter our program and learn a new craft after they have returned home from their service to our country.
First and foremost, Shelby Erectors is a family owned and operated business. We strive to have every employee feel like they’re a part of a family operation that’s moving forward for the greater good of the construction industry.
Jennifer Nix takes great pride in the fact that her husband, Jack Nix, serves as her consultant and field operations manager. Her son, Jackson Nix, and her son-in-law, Cory Martin, are an integral part of field operations.
It’s her sole goal that this company thinks “Safety Always” and “Everyone Goes Home.” Above all, we aim to elevate the integrity of the construction industry through technology, training, and innovation.
