Omni Construction was founded in 1980 by Danny Lee. Working from his garage, he spent the first two years doing small remodeling projects and rental property maintenance. By the third year, focus shifted to insurance repairs and the business grew steadily. In early 1986, the company moved to 305 Enterprise St., Longview, Texas, but a railcar explosion in December 1987 destroyed that building. By midsummer of 1988, the present facilities had been built at the same location.
Omni Construction has continued to provide disaster relief services to East Texas during such events as tornadoes in Ore City, East Mountain, Kilgore, Henderson and Marshall. An ice storm in the mid 1980’s paralyzed East Texas. Omni repaired dozens of homes damaged when frozen water pipes ruptured. When a train car exploded in West Longview, doing more than six million dollars worth of damage, Omni was a primary contractor in the repair efforts over a twenty-five mile damage radius. When fire broke out at the Lively Olds-Cadillac dealership, doing hundreds of thousands in damage, Omni rebuilt the facility in less than three months. Bodacious Barbecue West on Hwy 80 was closed down when a speeding truck ran through the building destroying the front, dining area, and kitchen. Omni had them back open for business in only eleven days. When a large hailstorm struck East Texas in 2000, there were 20,000 homes damaged. Omni repaired hundreds of them in the first year alone. A large ice storm followed the hailstorm, sending trees onto rooftops from Longview to Marshall. Again, Omni Construction provided disaster relief for homeowners and businesses.
Omni Construction has also contributed many hours of labor and many dollars in support of such community projects as Operation Clean Sweep, Kids View, Buckner Charities, Windridge, and the Inspiration House. The Company has volunteered for projects at local churches, schools, Gregg County Fair grounds, the Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Development Corp., Disability Services of the Southwest, Junior Achievement, Longview Ambucs, Great Texas Balloon Race, Rotary Park, Truman Smith Center, Greater Longview Soccer Association, Dixie Youth baseball fields, and many others.
Omni Construction has grown from $50,000 in annual sales to over a million, employing hundreds of craftsmen and laborers since 1980. The company has completed over 5,000 construction and consulting projects. Repairs have been made to structures damaged by fire, flood, storm, wind, hail, tornado, lightning, explosion, vehicle collision, vandalism, poor drainage, falling trees, ice, burglary, black water, foundation settlement, sub-slab leaks, toxic mold, insects, vermin, domestic pets, farm animals, gunfire, and a dead possum.
Omni Construction has been the designated repair contractor for such insurance companies as CAN, Commercial Union, General Accident, USAA and others.
