Crawford, Smith & Sharp LLC has become Sharp & Robbins Construction LLC after a change in the construction firm’s ownership.
Dale Sharp and Dave Robbins acquired Reggie Crawford and Ben Smith’s shares of the firm, which specializes in multifamily and commercial construction.
Similarly, Crawford and Smith acquired Sharp’s ownership share of Engineered Medical Systems LLC, which builds medical components, devices and instruments.
Sharp joined Crawford, Smith & Sharp in 1994.
“Both my former partners were active in our medical manufacturing business, and hadn’t had daily involvement in the construction business for several years,” he said in a statement.
Sharp & Robbins Construction plans to expand its presence in Memphis, Nashville and Little Rock throughout 2010, a move that could mean the creation of several new jobs in these areas.
“As we gain market share, we’ll need new personnel at every level, from project management to field supervision, as well as hourly construction workers,” Sharp said.
Sharp & Robbins Construction is headquartered in Memphis, with a second office in Nashville. The firm is licensed in five states, including Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana, and is registered in Kentucky and Texas. The firm also is going through the licensing process in North Carolina and Georgia.
