Energy and Construction

Providing Historical Perspective

The history of the United States is steeped in a relentless drive for progress. Looming cooling towers of nuclear power plants dot our country while barges ply bayou country and offshore rigs populate the Gulf Coast. Write Stuff has had the privilege of chronicling the history of the finest corporations within the energy and construction industries.

At Write Stuff, we know that corporate success doesn’t happen overnight. It begins with the men and women who tirelessly strive for greatness—overcoming obstacles and making many personal sacrifices. We aim to bring these gripping and often colorful company stories to the printed page through research and extensive interviews with current and former company employees.

Our company history books on Kiewit, Rowan, Ingersoll-Rand, Ashland, Universal Forest Products, Noble Drilling, Parsons Corporation, J. F. Shea Co., Halliburton and its subsidiary Brown & Root, and others tell engaging stories of great entrepreneurs who risked fortunes and bruised knuckles to meet a growing country’s energy needs.
