The Judy Company was founded in 1922 by Philip S. Judy, a young and prominent geologist in the midwest. It was originally known as the "Air Made Well Company". Mr. Judy specialized in foundation investigations, water well construction and ground water supplies for municipalities and industry. He was an early pioneer of foundation consolidation by pressure grouting.

In the late 1920's, he performed the foundation work for Bagnell Dam, which forms Lake of the Ozarks. In the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's, he developed equipment and procedures for foundation grouting, and performed the foundation work on many of the dams and river structures that were constructed in that period. Many of the procedures and much of the equipment that he developed are still specified and utilized today.

In 1963, the company was purchased by Hugh Carr and in 1966 was incorporated as The Judy Company, Inc. At this time, The Judy Company turned primarily to the foundation consolidation of new dams in the 1960's and 1970's. Remedial work was also performed on older structures.

In the 1980's, as the need developed for remedial foundation work, The Judy Company responded by creating a specialty remedial division.


Since its incorporation in 1966, The Judy Company, Inc. has grown in sales, income and assets. The systems integration and grouting applications concepts utilized by The Judy Company have a continuing string of successful projects and unique equipment development capabilities; the company has been certified by the U.S. Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation for their work in dam and reservoir maintenance.

Over the years, The Judy Company has developed a reputation for performing quality work and has generated excellemt rapport with government agencies, industry, utilities, other contractors and engineers.
