Cape Romain Contractors specializes in marine construction and heavy highway bridge services.

Cape Romain Contractors specializes in marine construction and heavy highway bridge services. Cape Romain has 70 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,Cape Romain Corporate Office 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 toward construction than ecology. Binks DuPre passed in 1979, and 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 it further, earning it a reputation as an honest, hard-working, and dependable company.

Anthony "Sonny" DuPre Jr. became president in 2002 and served in that position until 2015. His brother Andrew G. DuPre became president in 2015. Andrew and Sonny both represent third generation ownership and management. Horry Parker and Sonny DuPre are both Vice Presidents and together with Andrew have over 80 years of marine experience. Cape Romain still maintains the honorable reputation that was forged by its founders; they have never failed to deliver on a contract.
