20 Years… and Counting

Over the past two decades, Quanta has become the leader in the specialty infrastructure services industry through innovative thinking and safe execution, which has woven our company into the very fabric of the utility space. We continue to hold this position by building the industry’s strongest and safest teams, anticipating and capitalizing on macro industry catalysts, and maintaining focus on a multi-year plan. Throughout our history, Quanta’s executive leadership has implemented this approach, which has allowed us to grow profitably and dramatically since Quanta’s inception.

John Colson is the visionary founder of Quanta. Not only did he shape our company, he shaped our industry. Under John’s leadership as CEO from 1997 to 2011, Quanta’s revenues increased more than 1,000% to $3.6 billion.
John hired Jim O’Neil in 1999 to lead Quanta’s operations integration group. Jim rose through the ranks and became Quanta’s CEO in May 2011. Under Jim’s leadership as CEO, Quanta’s revenues more than doubled to $7.6 billion.
Duke Austin’s long history with Quanta began in 2001 when Quanta acquired his family’s business, which is now one of Quanta’s largest operating units. Duke took on increasing responsibilities and was named CEO in March 2016. Since then, Quanta’s revenues have increased 47% and adjusted EBITDA has increased 72%, both of which were at record levels in 2018.

Today the people of Quanta stand together as a workforce of more than 39,000. The vast majority of these employees are our industry-leading craft labor force, who bring the skills required to safely deliver execution excellence.

In 2018, the markets that Quanta serves were healthy and growing. We capitalized on opportunities by continuing to foster our entrepreneurial business model and collaborating closely with customers to develop infrastructure solutions that meet their needs and help them better meet the needs of their customers. Our goal is to continually evolve to make them better. We solidified our regional structure, which allows us to better serve the evolving needs of our customers as their service lines and geographies expand. This has allowed us to move forward as one, but with the agility to adapt to market conditions and seize opportunities.

20 Solid Years

Quanta has operated through multiple market cycles over the past 20 years. Regardless of economic conditions, we have remained steadfast to our long-term vision and strategies, which has driven stable overall growth throughout our history. We are pleased to report that 2018 was the best year so far.
