How We Started
The company's founder, Elwood Smith, started in the Masonry business in 1958 with his first Masonry Contractor's License (License C-29 #197887). In these early years, he specialized in residential and small commercial contracting.
By 1965 the business had grown to working primarily on large commercial masonry projects. At this time, Elwood Smith took steps to incorporate as E & S Masonry, Inc. (License # 275807). For 36 years, Elwood led the company personally, specializing in large, often complex masonry projects in association with
many of Northern California's premier commercial general contractors and architects.
In 1994, after 36 years of Masonry contracting, Elwood felt it was time for some help. He looked to
two long time excellent employees, Ron Bennett and Larry Kitchuck, who both shared the same
views of quality work and on-time completion as himself. That same year, Elwood incorporated as E & S
Masonry Corporation (License #562066) with these two men as partners. Elwood Smith
remained President, Ron Bennett became General Manager and Vice President, and Larry Kitchuck became Field Superintendent.
Present Day Leadership
As these three business identities, E & S Masonry has become one of the
leading commercial masonry contractors in Northern California. Our work can be
seen in commercial buildings and structures designed for such well-known customers
as Pixar Animated Studios, Nordstrom, Sears, Lucasfilm's Skywalker Ranch and Big
Rock Ranch, Chiron, Mills Peninsula Hospital, San Francisco Juvenile Hall and
many other San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California retail, hi-tech businesses,
colleges, libraries, schools, civic and government organizations. Please visit
