About Us

For 40 years, Appling Brothers Company has faithfully served Middle Georgia with top notch site development, grading, excavating, and many other construction site services.

Founded in 1976 by the Appling Brothers, the company was eventually purchased by Al Bridges. Appling Brothers is now operated by his son, Darrell Bridges. Appling Brothers is a family-oriented company, and we take great pride in our reoccurring clients and business. We serve a multitude of industries including education (K-12 and higher education), residential, medical, commercial, municipal, and many more.

Unparalleled Professionalism & Customer Service

At Appling Brothers, we believe that our professionalism is second to none. From the moment we begin a project until we leave the construction site for the final time, our goal is to provide the customer with unparalleled professionalism and customer service by our thoughtful and hard-working staff. Our team is made up of experienced, skilled tradesmen who are dedicated to delivering high-quality work for each project we take on.

The materials used by Appling Brothers are the safest, most environmentally friendly in the industry. Our materials comply with the U.S. Department of Transportation and exceed minimum state and federal regulations. By combining high-quality materials with high-quality work, we give our clients the best finished product in the industry.
