The company first opened its doors in 1986. Earle Glidden Jr. started the company immediately after leaving high school, and Glidden began with a pick-up truck, a loader backhoe, one dump truck, and five employees, focusing mainly on residential foundations, driveways, snow plowing, and small paving repairs. The company continued to add field employees, estimators, a construction manager, and several additional pieces of construction and paving equipment through the 90s and early 2000s. Glidden continued to grow in the commercial and municipal construction side of the business, and today, it is among the biggest construction companies in Maine.
The number of services the company can provide has grown over the years to the point where Maine residents expect every service under a single roof where construction and excavation are concerned. They provide sewer and drain repair and installation, water line repair and installation, curb installation, sidewalk installation and reconstruction, and roadway repair and installation. The company has an extensive list of notable past projects that any Maine resident would likely be familiar with. This list includes projects like the reconstruction of the Bank of America parking lot and improvements to drainage in the town of Raymond.
The company has an equally impressive record when it comes to its paving services. These include commercial parking lots, private roadways and subdivisions, airport runways and taxiways, and more. Their list of successful paving projects includes Route 136 in Durham Maine and the runway overlay at the Portland Jetport.
