Leaders of Hatfield Construction, Inc. now seek to expand and partner with area construction professionals
FLORENCE— Keiter Corporation has formally spun-off its excavation and site work division, Hatfield Construction Inc., into a wholly owned subsidiary in a move that President Scott Keiter said poises the new organization for growth. Historically, the division served only Keiter clients, but it will now scale up to serve many other clients in the industry.
Key leaders in the firm will be Bill Moynihan, director of operations, in charge of project management and field operations, and Dylan Courtney, director of pre-construction, who will oversee project development, estimating and sales.
“The businesses are run differently from one another, have different needs, and now have entirely separate management teams,” Keiter said. “We’re now able to position ourselves for continued growth, and we are excited about the opportunity for Hatfield Construction to develop new relationships with other contractors and builders in the region and partner with them on their construction projects.”
Hatfield Construction offers services including trucking and hauling, excavation, demolition, sewer and water, septic systems, land clearing, storm water systems and trenching for underground utilities. Keiter said the business also works closely with solar companies, assisting them with trenching and ground mount systems.
Hatfield Construction has approximately 20 employees in roles ranging from equipment operator and laborer to site foremen and management.
Courtney said, “Hatfield Construction ensures the same core values and quality of service as its parent company.”
Keiter added, “We bring a high level of professionalism to the table. We have a deep reservoir of talent on staff, and we’re always up for the challenge of complex projects.”
Moynihan has been with Keiter for eight years. He holds an associate degree in architecture from Springfield Technical Community College and a bachelor’s in building construction technology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
Hired last fall, Courtney holds a bachelor’s in business administration from Nichols College and an MBA from Washington State University. He is also certified in construction project management by Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Hatfield Construction offers a broad scope of services. Current projects include the development of an outdoor exercise “airnaseum,” or open-air gymnasium, at the Hampshire Regional YMCA; infrastructure upgrades to the Parsons House at Smith College, including a new elevator shaft; and excavation, storm water systems and other site work on Belchertown property being developed by the Cutchins Programs for Children & Families.
