Meet The Owner – Kevin Sasser
At the young age of 18, Kevin Sasser created a business locally known as Sasser Construction, a residential and commercial construction company. He soon began building luxury homes and in the mid 90’s he expanded into commercial development. It was during these first 20 years the Sasser name became synonymous with “Quality Workmanship” and “Unwavering Client Satisfaction.” A young, hardworking entrepreneur provided him with a wealth of experience, but at the time Kevin had no idea how all of this would prepare him for the eminent failing economy in 2009.
By early 2009, it was obvious the construction industry was slowing down significantly and headed toward disaster. “Disaster” is precisely the route Sasser traveled. At a staff meeting 4 years ago, Kevin recalls saying “We understand construction, it is just that simple.” Looking to diversify the construction company, Kevin realized disaster restoration companies had very little to offer devastated homeowners and property owners in the way of reconstruction and new construction. Having built his entire reputation by being “hands on” for every project, the disaster industry welcomed the Sasser name and his approach. It was that same year when the Disaster Mitigation and Restoration Company were formed to join forces with Sasser Construction. The two companies offered Restoration Services, Content Storage, Construction and Electrical services. With only 12 employees, 24 hour Emergency Service and a desire to develop the same reputation of quality and service, Kevin and his staff “did it all.” Employees were trained and certified in water, fire and smoke restoration, structural drying, odor control and carpet cleaning.
In order to operate more efficiently and in an effort to be specifically associated with positive affirmations of hope, restoration and rebuilding, all of these services were united under one company. Sasser Companies was incorporated in 2011 and now occupies a 55,000 sq. facility and has expanded into multiple divisions. Currently there are over 100 employees and over 60 trucks/vehicles/trailers equipped to handle any given job.
Kevin Sasser is dedicated and compassionate about growing and managing his company. He is the Owner and President, but you can usually find him on job sites working alongside employees and driving to emergency calls in the middle of the night. Kevin’s philosophy to maintaining a successful business has always been going above and beyond which yields maximum customer satisfaction.
