The History of SWAT Construction

In January of 1986 Wayben Touchet and Steve Fizgerald opened SWAT Inc. Using a family run business model with 5 employees, including Wayben's wife Willie and son Reed, they began growing the business. They were focused in the oilfield and pipeline industry in Southeast Texas as a general construction contractor. In 1993 when Steve left the company Wayben took over full ownership and shortly thereafter his youngest son Damon "Deuce" joined. Wayben and Willie ran SWAT together for 18 years until their retirement in 2004 when Reed and Deuce bought the company. Our South Texas office was opened in 2011 and our West Texas office was opened in 2014.

Where we are today

Today we employ over 175 employees in both offices. SWAT was awarded the Chambers County Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Business of the Year in 2013 and Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Community Service in 2015. We remain dedicated on providing quality services to each customer.
