Because Austin Industries is 100 percent employee-owned, our employee-owners have a stake in the company’s success, and the company has a stake in theirs. The result is a corporate culture that cares about the development and well-being of everyone on the Austin Industries team.
It’s an exciting time to work at Austin Industries, where we are currently approaching 100 years of service in the construction industry, building landmark projects across the United States since 1918.
Austin is 100% employee-owned, meaning our staff is eligible to participate in an Employee Stock Ownership Plan, or ESOP, which provides Austin employee-owners with an increasing shareholder value in the company, in the form of company stock or cash contributions. With the ESOP, you share in the benefits of Austin’s growth and profitability, something most companies – including our competitors – don’t provide.
The benefits of being an ESOP company make Austin a unique place to work, in more ways than one. Besides the retirement benefits and financial future, employee-owners at ESOP companies are shown to enjoy:
Working for Austin is not simply “any other job.” It’s a special work environment where our employee-owners aren’t just working for a paycheck. They are working for each other, for our customers and communities, and for the success of the company.
Employee-owners are covered by a comprehensive benefits package, which includes group insurance, 401(k), and an excellent employee stock ownership plan (ESOP). Read more about our benefits and ESOP.
"For almost a century, it has been our employee-owners who have been our greatest asset. They are the core of our business."
David Walls, CEO and President
“When employee-owners say Austin is “my” company, they mean that in a real, tangible sense. They own it.”
Bill Solomon, Austin’s former CEO & President and Austin ESOP founder
“The strength of Austin is its people. The employee stock ownership plan assures that the company's continued success will directly benefit the people doing the work."
