Irby Construction Company is proud to be ranked #16 among the top 100 Mississippi-based companies by the Mississippi Business Journal.

The list ranks companies by total sales revenue. Irby Construction Company has been steadily moving up the ranks in recent years. In 2019 Irby Construction was #23 and in 2020 the company was #21. Irby Construction’s ranking is based on revenue of $750,000,000. The company’s actual revenue at year end exceeded $800,000,000.

The Mississippi 100 list is produced annually by the Mississippi Business Journal (MBJ) and is based on Mississippi Business Journal (MBJ) research. Information was provided by company representatives and market analysts and MBJ research. Since its inception in 1989, this list has been the only definitive ranking of the 100 most-successful privately held businesses in the state.

“Irby Construction is honored to once again be included among the most successful companies in our state,” said Andre Foster, Vice President, BD and Major Projects. “Our diverse scope of services has allowed us to grow with our industry into new areas. For example, we’re building more and more infrastructure to support clean energy transmission.”

Compiling the Mississippi 100 is a yearlong process. The MBJ utilizes numerous resources to identify the thousands of privately held companies in Mississippi then narrow it down to and verify the top 100 revenue producers. The release of the list is highly anticipated each year, particularly among the prospective private companies. Those businesses that make the ranking routinely tout their inclusion in press releases, marketing materials and on their websites.

Irby Construction Company builds infrastructure for the power industry. The company’s portfolio of projects spans more than 75 years and a broad spectrum of services including: transmission, distribution, substation, renewable, emergency restoration, foundation, outdoor lighting, and telecommunication projects.
