SAN ANTONIO - The company was founded in 1989 with $2,500 in his checking account and a pick up truck. Today, D.L. Bandy Constructors is looking at reaching over 30 million this year. David Bandy, president of the company was originally headquartered in Austin. He then moved his headquarters to San Marcos for over 20 years until last October. The mid-sized commercial company is now headquartered in San Antonio, but still have an office located on Highway 21 in San Marcos.


    Robert Harrell, operations manager, has been with Mr. Bandy for 12 years. Starting as a superintendent, in five years became the operations manager. Harrell says the company has been molded the right way. “We’re a big team; we’re a big family. We call them Bandy guys.”
    D.L. Bandy focuses primarily on K-12 schoolwork. In fact 85 percent of their work is school related projects. Projects with Judson ISD, Hondo ISD, and Northside ISD are being completed. “These guys get it done. They take care of the owner and they take care of the project,” says Harrell. He recognizes the people who work here all come to realize everybody’s pulling the wagon together.
    Harrell mentions, although the employees are scattered out and everybody is on different jobs sites throughout south central Texas. It’s good to all come together and communicate their goals. “We try to bring the company in as a whole two or three times a year to let everybody know from A to Z what we’re doing, how we’re doing, where we’re going, and to confirm and reassure what our beliefs and values are.”
    This year D.L. Bandy is rebranded with a new website and logo. “The new one is fresh and it marks our period of growth and how we are coming into our own and more of a significant force,” says Harrell. The company’s effort to become a bigger presence in the San Antonio market is a goal for this year.
    D.L. Bandy Constructors is a commercial construction general contracting company. – lv
