GT Nix Construction -
A family owned and operated company since 1986
Gary Nix owner and founder had always dreamed of owning his own business. After years of experience in superintending projects for other companies & while on the Intermountain Power Project in Delta, Utah, he decided to go into debt and purchase his first piece of equipment. He started with a John Deere 302a landscape tractor.
Shortly after Gary started on his own, he decided to move his family and company to Mountain View, WY, where GT Nix Construction continues to grow and expand their services.
Gary has earned several top honours at equipment rodeos, including First Place two years in a row in Reno, Nevada and top honours in Salt Lake City, Utah. He also serves on the Bridger Valley Electric Associations Board of Directors and the Wyoming Rural Electric Association Board of Directors.
In 1994 Gary was awarded the Citizen of the Year Award by the city of Mountain View, and in 1998 he was awarded the Wyoming Small Business Person of the Year Award, by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
Gary's wife, Tanya Nix, co-
Gary and Tanya had always had a dream of having a son to carry on their work and company. In 1982 their wish came true, Jace E Nix was born. Gary and Tanya started teaching him the business at an early age. Jace continues to work in the family business.
Jace has also followed in Gary’s foot step and in 2011 competed in the Case Triple Threat Rodeo in Salt Lake City and won first place in both the wheel loader and backhoe competition and fifth place on the skid steer. This giving him best all around, that sent him on to the North American Finals in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he competed with the top operators from the US and Canada. Jace and Gary have both, in recent years, placed in top spots in smaller equipment rodeos on both the excavator and wheel loader.
By maintaining the company as a family owned and operated business, we believe it has allowed our company to excel by keeping the pride and integrity in our work. It has also allowed us to stay competitive with larger companies through the tough economic times.
Over the years GT Nix has served many clients for example Solvay Chemicals, Tronox, Union Pacific Rail Road and many more.
