Giving Back

Batson-Cook’s commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live and work began with our founders, W.C. Batson and Edmund Cook, who helped the people of West Point, Georgia, rebuild their lives and homes following two natural disasters - a tornado and a flood - which occurred not long after the company was founded in 1915.

Over the ensuing century, the Batson-Cook family has honored its founders by being as passionate about giving back as we are about building! We strive to live by our core values of doing the right thing and caring about people. Our employees are leaders in their communities, and our company does not step away from an opportunity to help improve life for those around us.

At Batson-Cook: We live by our values;

We strive to make meaningful contributions; and We embrace our company’s civic conscience.

We are Batson-Cook.

Our philanthropic endeavors are largely employee-driven. Needs, causes, and organizations that are close to the hearts of our people are supported by Batson-Cook and our parent company, Kajima, through financial gifts, corporate-sponsored events, and allowing for personal time off to participate in philanthropic programs. Whether it’s a company-funded event, a hands-on community activity, or an individual pursuit, the employees of Batson-Cook are encouraged to connect to their communities by giving back.
