our history

Our History at DEB Construction

DEB Construction, LLC. was founded in 1975 in Anaheim, California by Yakub “Jake” Vali, a structural engineer, and his two partners, a designer and a builder. Together, these three partners established the DNA of our company, as well as our name: Designer, Engineer, Builder. DEB Construction started out completing small residential and commercial jobs.

In 1978, Jake Vali, already the driving force of the company since its founding, bought out his two partners and took over sole ownership of DEB Construction. Our company also opened a branch office in San Jose, California later that year.

DEB Construction Places a Special Emphasis on Service

Our Commitment to Customer Satisfaction

We have built our business steadily and organically by focusing on gaining the complete satisfaction of each client we serve. Our goal is to provide the most outstanding customer service available among construction companies, helping to foster loyalty and repeat business. DEB Construction is proud to be large enough to offer complete, full-service commercial general contracting capabilities, while also being small enough to offer personal service to every one of our clients.
