J.L. Dumas, president, said, "We are one of a few African American owned entities of this kind and magnitude in the country and the only one within the city of Detroit.
It's been a 30-year journey with ups and downs. For people entering the business my advice would be not to take things personally, treat your people well and keep evolving." Over its 30-year history, the firm has developed an impressive client base that includes automotive giants such as Ford, DaimlerChrysler and General Motors; large municipalities such as the cities of Detroit and Chicago, Ill.; educational institutions such as Wayne State University and the Detroit Public Schools; and an array of commercial owners including Detroit Edison and SBC, formerly Ameritech. With quality as a cornerstone of its operations, Dumas received its International Standards Organization (ISO) 9001 registration in 2000, an accomplishment that has helped to sustain and further develop excellent working relationships and alliances with major construction enterprises nationally. Dumas is a certified minority business enterprise (MBE) with several local, state and national agencies including Minority Business Development Councils in Michigan and Chicago. The firm also has working agreements, memberships in or affiliations with the International Ironworkers Union and International Operating Engineers Union, as well as unions representing laborers, carpenters and other trades. In addition to seeking out the best-qualified professional staff, J. L. Dumas is an advocate for employee development and community involvement. Dumas said, "Education is a life-long endeavor and it comes in many forms. I want the best people around me and if that means making an investment in their formal education, I'm glad to do that. Dumas also maintains professional affiliations with the National Association of Minority Contractors where he has been a board member for 22 years; the Association of General Contractors; the American Arbitration Association; Detroit Chamber of Commerce; the Chicago Urban League; the Great Lakes Fabricators and Erectors Association; and the Detroit Athletic Club.
J. L. Dumas' formal education and training at Wayne State University and the Lawrence Institute of Technology, as well as his keen business acumen, have been further enriched through his professional affiliations.
