davis & Floyd:

A Proud history that’s
Prepared Us for the future

Across the life of our company, Davis & Floyd’s leadership, employees, and engineers have always focused on one thing—the people in our community who will utilize what we design throughout their daily lives.

It all began with two men—Emmett I. Davis, Jr. and Phil Floyd—who had a dream to enhance the lives of South Carolinians. Their vision continues today with an incredible team of over 150 individuals who carry on those principles to better our communities, not just for this generation, but for the generations that will come after us.

This year we celebrate our 66-year history of engineering excellence. It has prepared us to tackle the engineering challenges of the future.

We invite you to join us on the journey.
