Cape Romain has 65 years of history providing these services to government and public clients including the South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia Departments of Transportation, the US Army Corp of Engineers, the US Navy, the US Coast Guard, and South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia Ports Authorities, Water Authorities, County Administrations, along with many private owners and associations.
In 1946, Andrew “Binks” DuPre and his brother James H. DuPre founded Cape Romain Contractors to provide complete biological, topographical, and ecological services in the development of fish and duck ponds and in the promotion of conservation practices with all kinds of wildlife. Andrew had been the long time manager of the Cape Romain and Bulls Island national wildlife refuges, and James was a graduate in Civil Engineering from The Citadel. Their company was believed to be the first of its kind in the nation.
As Cape Romain Contractors succeeded in the coming decades it gradually shifted more towards construction than ecology. Binks DuPre passed in 1979, his son Anthony “Tin” DuPre, who had grown up in the business, took over the helm of Cape Romain Contractors. Tin DuPre took an already reputable company and expanded the company further, earning it a reputation as an honest, hard working, and dependable company.
Today, Anthony “Sonny” DuPre is the president of Cape Romain Contractors. He marks the third generation of the family-run business. Horry Parker and Andrew DuPre are both Vice Presidents and together with Sonny have over 75 years of marine experience. The company has expanded greatly under Sonny’s direction and now carries a bonding capacity of over $50 Million. Cape Romain still maintains the honorable reputation that was forged by its founders; they have never failed to deliver on a contract.
