About Us

Kevcor, Inc. was founded in 1978 by Harvey D. Attra, PE, in Fort Worth, Texas, and began its operation with minority investments in energy. The company grew through two major recessions in the "oil patch" while successfully acquiring and turning around distressed operating units that expanded Kevcor capabilities into civil and environmental construction. After completing his military obligation, B. Cory Attra, PE, joined Kevcor as a project manager responsible for engineering and site operations in west Texas. The company had expanded into the region through environmental remediation, design/build, and early involvement in evolving public-private-partnerships.
