Alexander & Bebout, Inc. is Northwest Ohio’s premiere design-build general contractor! We’re family owned and operated. Together, Sylvia Alexander (Director and Co-Founder), Sara Zura (President and granddaughter of one of our founders), as well as Vice President, Brad Ream (who joined the ownership team in 2022), ensure we’re known for our quality, integrity, reliability and honesty. Pillars that were important to founders Tom Alexander & Gene Bebout.
Located in Van Wert in Northwest Ohio, Alexander & Bebout was established in March of 1965 with a focused specialty in farm silos and structures. We quickly expanded into building fertilizer plants and larger general construction projects. Today, we employ over sixty full-time employees who are skilled within the commercial and industrial fields.
We’ve been a design-build construction company for nearly all of our years in business. In 1970, Alexander & Bebout became a Butler Builder® – which makes our team your local, trusted (award-winning) Butler Career Builder for Butler Manufacturing and the pre-engineered building solutions that they offer. The strength of our relationship and our experience and expertise of their pre-engineered buildings has allowed us to service the needs of our clients wherever they arise. Although Alexander & Bebout, Inc. services primarily Northwest Ohio and Northeast Indiana regions; it has also provided buildings and projects in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, South Carolina, and New York.
We are proud of our many awards, but what we are most proud of is our staff. The Alexander & Bebout team recognizes and is committed to quality, integrity, reliability, and honesty. With an outstanding management team and outstanding seasoned skilled craftsmen, Alexander & Bebout, Inc. has grown continually for more than 50 years. Over 71% of our employees have been with the company for over ten years. We think that says a lot – about the experience you’ll receive while working with us and about the way we treat our team. Both are like family
