Saulsbury’s first company, Saulsbury Electric, was founded in 1967 by C.R. “Dick” Saulsbury in Odessa, Texas. After emerging as a strong, capable contractor with a reputation of integrity, hard work, and a commitment to “getting the job done right,” Dick Saulsbury expanded the Saulsbury organization, establishing Saulcon, Saulsbury’s construction company, in 1980. With the creation of Saulcon, Saulsbury became the only organization in the Permian Basin capable of providing total construction services: general construction and instrumentation and engineering. Following the success of Saulsbury Electric and Saulcon, Saulsbury Engineering and Construction was founded in 1994, representing the final step in establishing Saulsbury as a multi-industry, full-service organization, which would eventually become the basis of Saulsbury Industries upon consolidation.
