Est. 1953


For over 60 years Bowden Construction has specialized in the construction and installation of oil and gas plants, pipelines, and compressor stations.


Founded in Tyler, Texas in the early 1940 by Mr. William H. Bowden. Bowden Construction Company has served the Natural Gas Industry for over 50 years. The first completed contract dates back to December 4, 1942, between Mr. Bowden and the West Texas Gas Company for the installation of two Type 10 Twin Bessemer Compressor Units.

As the company grew, Mr. Bowden's son, Billy Bowden, and a young chemical engineer named Otis Hunter bought the company. In 1953, Otis Hunter bought Bowden Construction and incorporated the company.  Hunter Senior ran Bowden Construction until in 1994, Mr. Hunter's sons bought the company and became the present owners.

Today, Bowden Construction is regularly involved in the construction of grass-roots compressor stations and large scale gas processing plant projects and has continued to build successful relationships with our clients in the oil and gas industry.
