About Us

Atlantic Contracting and Material Co., Inc. is a fourth generation general contractor serving the Washington Metropolitan Area, specializing in heavy and highway construction. We are proud to have been part of the development of many of the region's most notable public and privately owned construction projects.

Starting out as R.T. Madden Company, we have deep roots in the early 1900's building gravel roads in Wisconsin. We paved city streets, curbs, gutters, and progressed to highway paving.   R. T. Madden's son, John, joined the business in the 1950's and became president in 1963. He expanded the business to include aggregate crushing and recycling, materials, and demolition. Over the years, R. T. Madden Company won several paving awards and was a contributor to West Virginia's road building initiative in the 1970's.

John Madden relocated in 1984 to the Metropolitan Washington Area renaming the company Atlantic Contracting and Material Co., Inc. and working on many key federal and regional government projects. John’s son Tom Madden, joined the business in 1984, became president in 2003 and expanded the business to include excavating, grading, and underground utilities. John's son Michael Madden joined the company in 1992 and grandson Matt Madden in 2011.
