Henderson and Coker Company, Inc. is currently owned by brothers Scott and Mitch Henderson. Mitch and Scott started working for the company as boys. They received their first payroll check at the ages of 11 and 12 years old working for seventy-five cents an hour. At that time, the company was owned by Rod Henderson and Harold Coker.
Rod and Harold worked for a local general contractor as project managers. They became close friends during that time. The contractor they were working for defaulted on projects that Rod and Harold were managing. Eventually, the company failed and Rod and Harold were left wondering what would be the next step. Both men were tenacious, hard working individuals driven to succeed and had young families to support in 1969.
They combined to buy equipment from their former employer and formed a company called Quality Concrete and Engineering. Several of the former employees who were left unemployed went to work for Quality Concrete and Engineering. The company successfully completed the jobs working for the bonding company.
From there, they eventually formed Henderson and Coker Company, Inc. in the early seventies. They served as licensed general contractors specializing in commercial construction. They built numerous schools across the state of Alabama and other commercial structures. Three other companies were formed along with the construction company. Included in those companies were Bominite of Alabama, a decorative concrete company, Area Concrete, a ready mix operation, and Granite Products, a granite mine. They also formed a partnership that contained various properties and rental developments.
Mitch and Scott continued to work for the company when they completed their college educations. Scott graduated from The University of Montevallo with a degree in business. Mitch graduated from Auburn University with a degree in building science.
