History of Astra Group

  • 1994

    Astra Group, Inc.

    Ian and Andrew Lindsay founded the company on March 7, 1994. It operated in the basement of Ian's home until they leased, and subsequently purchased, their first office space in Woodstock, GA. Since our inception in 1994, Astra Group, LLC (our parent company) has played an integral part in building up the Southeast’s infrastructure and public spaces. In our 25 years in business, we have completed more than $800 million in construction projects.

  • 2006

    Astra Grading & Pipe, LLC

    Our management team developed a growth strategy focused on building a multi-disciplinary construction services firm with large in-house infrastructure, earthwork and utility installation capability; subsequently, AGAP was formed.

  • 2014

    Astra Construction Services, LLC

    ACS was established as the Job Order Contracting (JOC) and ezIQC arm of the company in 2014.

  • 2019

    Astra becomes part of Equix Infrastructure Services, Inc.

    Equix invested their capital, knowledge and resources into Astra to allow for our future expansion. Although the Lindsay family no longer owns Astra, Andrew remains as President to lead with the same passion he has always had for the business. Equix’s leadership team and investors have a proven track record of successfully growing and expanding the capabilities of construction companies, and provides the necessary support and capital to help Astra continue to grow.
