About DXI from its website:

After logging 50 years in the construction industry, we recently updated our name from Dixie Construction Company, Inc. to DXI Construction to reflect our growing capabilities. But that does not change our history. From humble beginnings as a small paving company in Harford County, MD, we now cover the Mid-Atlantic region, spanning Washington, DC and Virginia, to Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and even West Virginia. And along the way, we’ve become one of the area’s top site-preparation construction companies.
