Smith Brothers, Inc. was founded by the hard working Smiths just around World War I. J. Edward Smith, the eldest of the brothers, began a business  building piers around the West River.

Smith Brothers, Inc. grew the old-fashioned way, by elbow grease. Smith Brothers, which grew to include six brothers and a partner, became legendary for their hard-work and high quality. In the 1950’s, the State Roads Administration of Maryland tapped Smith Brothers as one of its leading contractors, and for half a century they built and repaired many of the highway bridges in Maryland.

Today, Jeff Smith handles the day-to-day business with operations manager, Preston Hartge. The next generation of Smith Brothers, Inc. stands on its solid reputation providing barge rentals, tug service, contractors’ supplies and yard rental.
