volks constructors

Volks Constructors is a diversified heavy industrial contractor providing manufacturing, field services and industrial specialties to the petrochemical and related industries for nearly 50 years. In an age of increasing specialization, we are a true “one-stop shop” that continues to excel through our strategic locations, commitment to safety, insistence on quality and record of on-time delivery. The cornerstones of our management philosophy are:

  • Customer Driven
  • Controlled Growth Strategy
  • Continued Diversification
  • Commitment to Our People


The Volks story began in 1973. In 1980, AKM, Inc. was formed, with Volks Constructors as a merit shop division. The AKM name came from “All Kings Men” and the term Volks is German for “folks” — a nod to the “people-focused” mentality around which the company was formed.

Over the past 51 years the Volks family has seen many changes in our industry and company. The construction market in the early 2000s presented great challenges, but through proper management and dedicated personnel, Volks emerged a stronger company, exceptionally committed to delivering the services our clients expect.

Client expectations have provided us with an enormous opportunity to continue our growth. Over the 51 years of being in business, Mr. King has proven that “folks” is what has made — and continues to make — Volks successful.
