JT Construction was founded in 1993 by James Tebou. Originally a one-person decking operation, the business has expanded to a full-service construction company with six employees serving clients across Massachusetts.
While in high school, Tebou worked at a local dairy farm selling mulch and hay to contractors for erosion control. After completing his bachelor’s degree, he began working for a company installing mulch and silk fences.
With entrepreneurial aspiration, it was not long before Jamie started his own construction company. His high standards for cleanliness, environmental consciousness combined with years of experience, led Jamie to seek alternative methods of erosion control and filtering In search of more efficient techniques, he experimented for years on his own.,
Jamie would go on to purchase the original Silt Sock Machine. With proven results and ongoing concerns with job site erosion, Jamie expanded the company – opening Massachusetts Environmental Products- and filling a void in the industry.
Those experiences in the construction industry led Tebou to begin selling and manufacturing silk socks.
