Swift Bros. Construction Co.

Founded in 1948 by Robert and Raymond Swift, Swift Contractors has grown from a small residential contractor to a successful commercial builder constructing some of South Dakota's best-known buildings. After both brothers served in WWII, Robert and Raymond joined Dick Aschoff and founded Swift Bros. Construction. They developed their standard of quality by focusing on residential construction. Swift Contractors history and growth has come from their many quality employees who have worked and built their careers with the company.

Ray and Bob Enter

Construction Co. has gone to Texas, Minnesota, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Alaska as well as all over the state of South Dakota. Robert and Ray Swift laid the strong foundation of standards and quality that is still present in every commercial project built today.
