In 1966 Francis Maxwell founded Hub Foundation Co., Inc. His son Jim joined the company in 1969 and took over management and ownership of the company in 1981. Jim transformed Hub from a pile driving company into a drilled shaft company and, more recently, into a full service drilling company.

Maxwell Family

Jim's sons Jeff and Greg joined Hub Foundation after graduating from Tufts University in the 1990s, and now work as the chief superintendents and field managers. Jim's daughter Alissa joined the company full-time in 2002, and now serves as Treasurer and estimator.

In its four-decade history Hub has completed nearly 800 contracts under diverse, and sometimes difficult, conditions. Over the years Hub has evolved from one of New England's largest pile driving outfits to become a leader in the drilled shaft market in the Northeast United States.
