Hendrix Builders was started by Jean and Walter Hendrix in the mid-1970s following Walter’s earlier employment in heavy equipment sales and land clearing for local Columbia area builders. Walter continues to be active on a day-to-day basis.
Their son Steve Hendrix is married to wife, Althea. They have three grown children—son Clayton and daughters Casey and Chandler. Althea and Clayton are also involved in the company’s operation.
