The Construction Resources, Inc., family of businesses was born in 1970 when Fred Hires, Sr., bought out his partner’s portion of Atlanta Marble Manufacturing, Inc. For the next 31 years, Fred developed and expanded the business from its original focus on cultured marble to include several other businesses under the Construction Resources, Inc. mantle.

Fred’s sons Mitch and Sonny learned the business by working after school and during the summers and took over in 2001  perpetuating their father’s legacy.  The Hires share in the leadership of the Construction Resources family of businesses.
