Three Generations of Excellence

Every project we engage with is the culmination of three generations of craftsmanship. Our founder, Hubert Acton, began his career with Disney, then founded his own specialty construction company with his son, Ken Acton. Ken furthered his father’s legacy and moved the firm to Las Vegas, Nevada. His son, Scott, started working with his father at age 16, and eventually became a notable entrepreneur in his own right, receiving national accolades as the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Small Business Person of the Year for Nevada. Today, with every nail driven, every surface sanded, and every finish perfected, Forté Specialty Contractors continues a legacy of innovation that is unmatched in this industry.
