Our Story

Lori Perry is the sole owner of Diamond Contractors, Inc. Though Missouri-born, she spent most of her childhood in Hobbs, New Mexico. She then attended college at Graceland University in Iowa before moving to Missouri to begin her family. She began her construction company in 1994 out of a small upstairs bedroom in her home.

Coming from a background of hard work and a strong appreciation for personal integrity, Lori has built a construction company on those very same principles. She leads with the philosophy of “excellence from the ground up,” and believes that beginning strong helps you finish even stronger. That is why she insists that excellence and precision define each step of Diamond’s construction process, from the beginning of each project, all the way through its completion. It is that motivated approach that has gained Diamond Contractors its dependable reputation among its client base, including multiple national retailers. They know Diamond produces outstanding finished projects that reflect meticulous attention to detail, and that approach has maintained Diamond’s long-standing relationships with each of their clients.

Helping Lori to fulfill her ideals for Diamond Contractors is the participation of her family, who share her vision and work ethic. Her three children and their spouses have been an integral part of establishing and growing Diamond Contractors. Inc., which currently operates in 42 states.

To Lori, family is the number one priority. Her children and 5 grandchildren all live locally in the Independence area, and she greatly values spending time working, playing, and travelling with them all. Together, they make Diamond a true family business.

Although Diamond has now grown to include over 40 employees, they still maintain the same close-knit, family atmosphere that has become their signature strength.
