Dexter stood apart from their competitors and was in high demand by owners and contractors. As the company grew, it continued to build bonding limits from the first project bonded at $343,000 to its current bonding program of 100 million dollars. Dexter's reputation for high quality and being able to meet demanding schedules was not only recognized by the contractors they were working for but also by the men and women hired to perform the labor intensive projects. It soon became known that to work for Dexter, an individual had to be above average and believe in the ideals on which the company was founded. Dexter is signatory to the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local 1 Connecticut, the Labors International Union of North America as well as Local 1 - RI & MA.
These high standards enabled Dexter to continually grow even through the recession of the early 90's and by 1994, Dexter was the largest masonry contractor in Connecticut. Dexter's company has continually been recognized by ENR Magazine as one of the top masonry contractors in the country, ranking 8th nationally in 2005 with a 2004 revenue of 34.6 million dollars. Bruce W. Dexter II, President and founder, recognized early on that in order to meet the needs of his customers and enable the company to steadily grow, he would have to hire knowledgeable individuals with industry experience and learn from them. This has proven to be vital to the company's success. Most of Dexter's approximate 200 employees have been with the company for at least ten or more years. This is remarkable in an industry that typically has a high turnover rate.
Having established such a strong company base and solid reputation in the industry, Dexter has become known as a company that can be called upon to meet demanding project needs such as the Foxwoods Resort and Casino, the Mohegan Sun Project Sunburst Expansion, and various educational facilities with fast track schedules.
