About Guy Yocom Construction, Inc.
Guy Yocom began a life-long commitment to the construction industry in 1978 when he began placing concrete slabs in the Inland Empire. Despite starting out with a project team of only five and with his home serving as the office and equipment yard, Guy’s attention to quality and client satisfaction allowed for larger opportunities and challenges. Guy Yocom Construction made its first move into commercial construction through the tilt-up building industry. Within ten years GYC became the leader in the industry and remains at the forefront today. Not afraid of new challenges, the company ventured into the cast-in-place structural concrete industry and has established a successful second division that is quickly becoming one of the industry leaders.
