Since its beginnings in 1978 at the capable hands of John Reams, our current Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Reams Construction has striven to deliver the highest quality of construction services to our clients in the Four Corners area and beyond. Here is an introduction to the people who make it all happen:
John Reams - Founder and CEO
John Reams got to know the land around Naturita first-hand starting in 1975, when he began working for different local mining families. He has amassed an incredible knowledge of the area through his own experiences as well as listening to the tales of those who went before him.
When he started Reams Construction Company, he used his wisdom and experience to quickly grow the company into the region's foremost excavation contractor. For the past 30 years, Reams Construction has proven to be a successful contracting business which has operated profitably. John's continued commitment to safety has earned the company several local and national annual safety awards.
John opened the Mining Division of Reams Construction in 1989, which performed work at the Ura and Rim Shaft Mines. Recognizing the need to explore uranium mining, he created Tomcat Mining Corporation in 2004. John's keen sense of business has again proven to be a success, as Tomcat Mining Corporation is now poised to become the region's and nation's premier mining contractor.
