Anyone can be in business for years but it’s the backbone of the business and the impact on the industry it serves that makes it a lasting and valued partner to customers, employees and peers. In celebrating 25 years as an industry leader in Arizona, Achen-Gardner continues to live out the core values (the backbone) established by founders Doug Gardner and Sanders Achen – “Our customers deserve the best and our employees make it possible”.

In 1989, Dennis Troggio (President) accepted the opportunity to start and lead the General Engineering Construction Division of Achen-Gardner, Inc. and expanded the business into the heavy highway arena. Twenty-five years later, what once was a division to a parent company is now a successful standalone operation – Achen-Gardner Construction, LLC.

As a heavy highway general contractor, Achen-Gardner Construction specializes in underground wet utilities, pipeline rehabilitation, roadway improvements, heavy civil infrastructure, site development, and streetscapes. Achen-Gardner Construction is also the exclusive installer of Reline America Inc.’s Blue-Tek Ultraviolet Light Cured-In-Place Pipe liner system in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. The company has two offices located in Chandler and Tucson with 110 employees combined.
