For over 30 years Wells Brothers Construction has prospered because of its consistent leadership. The Wells family has held a steady hand over the company's operations and continue to plot a successful course for the company.


The groundwork for Wells Brothers Construction can be traced back over 50 years to Marvin T. Wells. Terry Wells (President and Founder) began his earthwork career with his father, Marvin, before he finished middle school in the 1960s. In 1978, Terry purchased a single bulldozer and ventured out on his own. 


As company prospects grew, brothers Dave and Gary joined the team, and Wells Brothers was formed. Wells Brothers Construction flourished by being a large contributor to the areas livestock farming boom of the 1990s and began to provide site work services in 1992. The earthwork crews began completion of master-planned communities in 1998. 


By 2005 the company had grown exponentially and construction efforts were directed to the expansion of Camp Lejeune and Fort Bragg. Terry’s son, Rock, was added to the staff in 2007. As generations work together they continue to provide quality heavy civil services in numerous markets.  



To build long-term relationships, through sustainable construction and commitment to ensuring project success for everyone. To build these relationships we approach every project determined to provide quality, timely, and valuable solutions at every stage of the construction process. 


To be the region's leader in water, sewer, and stormwater construction and maintenance, while continuing to provide superior development services.
