As one of the nation’s leading general contractors, Aristeo prioritizes safety, integrity, excellence, and getting the work done – the right way. We’ve earned our reputation of reliable and collaborative partners as we plan, manage, and execute our customers’ largest strategic programs nationwide.
NATIONALLY RANKED GENERAL CONTRACTOR
Founded in 1977 as a small excavating and concrete contractor, Aristeo started with humble beginnings: only $10,000 and a truck. Now a full-service general contractor, and the nation’s largest women-owned general contractor, Aristeo is ranked in the top 10 nationwide in the manufacturing and renewable energy industries, and the top 5 in automotive.
As the industry has changed, Aristeo has remained true to the core values built into the foundation of our business decades ago. Because of our commitment to safety, quality, integrity, and excellence, Aristeo remains a chosen partner to globally-recognized customers in the manufacturing, commercial, power & energy, and industrial markets.

Aristeo is committed to the overall development of the construction workforce, prioritizing apprenticeship and outreach programs in partnership with local skilled trades unions, universities and industry organizations.
In addition, Aristeo provides a rewarding environment full of opportunities for personal and professional fulfillment across our team, including our in-house training program, Aristeo University. Thanks to our commitment to workforce development, Aristeo has been awarded the AGC of Michigan Cornerstone Award for Workforce Development three times in the last few years.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
Aristeo strives to strengthen diversity in the workforce by prioritizing inclusivity of the entire potential working population – across backgrounds, experiences, and industries. It is also critical to emphasize inclusivity throughout our workforce via a friendly, welcoming culture and transparent, open communication policies. Aristeo is proud to have been recognized for our efforts in the DEI and supplier diversity arenas, including the WBE of the Year and the Corporate Volunteer of the Year Awards by the Great Lakes Women’s Business Council, a feature on our diversity and inclusion efforts in TAUC’s The Construction User Magazine, and the Diversity-Focused Company Award by Corp! Magazine.
