Our Story

Jeff Martin
Jeff Martin, Founder

A Man and a Vision

In April 1992, a young Jeff Martin approached his father, Glenn, with the ambition of starting a contracting business. Jeff had an aptitude for business from an early age but more importantly, he had a dream of a better life for those around him. The father-son duo cleaned out an old coal chute in the back of a JC Penney store to make into an office. They began helping families around Sedalia, MO, with their home improvement needs. What seemed like just a couple of guys digging ditches at the time would turn into a much bigger undertaking.

A Vision to Reality

Our place in the contracting industry works as a means to serve our customers and dedicate ourselves to making their homes and lives better.


We are one team working together. We share the same passion to pursue constant improvement for ourselves and one another. We aim to provide one experience for our customers – exceptional. We advocate for the one community of those who have impacted us and give us the opportunity to impact others.

We are Foundation Recovery Systems.
