Residents of Ajo may have begun to notice the sights and sounds of Markham

Contracting's construction equipment working north of Solana Avenue, and east and west of the railroad tracks. Markham Contracting is preparing to install nine miles of six-inch and eight-inch water mains to provide new services to nearly 700 homes.

But who is Markham Contracting?

Established more than 33 years ago by Michael Markham Sr., Markham Contracting is a family-owned and Arizona-based general contractor. Now in its second generation of leadership, Michael Markham Jr., and Heather Markham, son and daughter of Michael Markham Sr., say they are successfully leading the company into a new era.

Owning and operating a large fleet of heavy construction equipment, Markham

Contracting specializes in civil construction projects. This includes large-scale earth-moving activities, roadway paving operations, and wet utility (water line) installation, similar to the project in Ajo. Recent notable projects completed or under construction by the company include Phoenix International Raceway and Mesquite Solar Power Plant.
