About Us

A Family Company

Jacob grew up on a farm in Harrowsmith, Ontario. His father taught him the value of hard work. From a young age, he demonstrated leadership qualities and took an interest in building and working with his hands. 

This led naturally to his dream to be an entrepreneur. In 1998 he started his own business as a carpenter and subcontractor. He earned his carpentry license and the respect of his teachers and clients with his skill and determination. His goal was to educate himself in all aspects of building.

This now allows him to handle jobs of any size, as well as deal with management and scheduling of contractors and sub-trades. His business has steadily built up to be the reputable and reliable organization it is today.

Over the years clients and referred customers have come to know and expect the kind of reliability and workmanship that Beckwith Contracting delivers. Clients can expect a job that meets and surpasses the standards required.
