Our History

How It All Started

Morgan Corp. began as Morgan Landscape Company in 1945. Its founder, Ladson Morgan, was a World War II veteran and native South Carolinian. Morgan Landscape Company offered ground clearing, repair, and site preparation to clients in and around Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Now known as Morgan Corp., Ladson Morgan’s modest company has evolved into a diversified heavy construction company with hundreds of employees. Morgan Corp. continues to grow, with offices in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia, servicing projects across the entire Southeast Region.

Although Morgan Corp. is now one of the largest grading companies in the Southeast, it remains a family business. Stewart Johnson continues to oversee as Chairman of the Board and his son David now serves as CEO. Together, they work with the rest of the Morgan Corp. family towards a bright future, striving to uphold the company’s core values of safety, quality, and productivity.
