Brothers help build company and modern Decatur by Decatur Daily

A great read by Bruce McLellan with the Decatur Daily on our company’s history and growth over the years featuring our president and CEO, Jack Fite, and our founder, Bob Fite.

“If not for a slippery, reptilian house guest in Hartselle, Fite Building Co. in Decatur might never have become a business that generated close to $180 million in revenue in 2023.

It might not have almost 200 direct and contract employees. It might not have been co-founded by Bob Fite and Bill Hendrix before being led today by Jack Fite.

And Fite Building might never have helped shape the look of Decatur’s riverfront and downtown by serving as general contractor for the Ingalls Harbor Pavilion, Cook Museum of Natural Science, Renasant Bank Decatur Gateway and Alabama Center for the Arts.”

What Our Clients Say

"Fite put together a great team of construction and design to deliver a first class Air Cargo building facility at the Huntsville International Airport. The coordination with the project manager to handle design and construction related issues found to be very helpful in managing our workload. The attention to detail from their subcontractors was a cut above what we’ve been accustomed to in the past.

Fite made a somewhat apprehensive client happy with the Design/Build scenario and we’ve continued this model for several projects due to the success of the Air Cargo Facility."
