Our History

Desi & Alex 2015Arnold De La Paz, born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, founded The DLP Group 16 years ago based on the core values of hard work, teamwork, integrity, and commitment. Mr. De La Paz brought to the company twenty years experience in a construction-related industry. Mr. De La Paz advanced from entry-level sales in a small local company to corporate sales with one of the largest paint manufacturing companies in America.

From 1995-1999, he owned and operated a painting business increasing revenues ten-fold in that four-year period. From that success he made the next step and launched a general construction firm, The D.L.P Group, Inc in 2000.

Today, the company’s reach is national, and our people uphold its founder’s vision to provide valuable services to clients, build partnerships in the community, and deliver important resources such as schools, hospitals, state & federal buildings, and multi-purpose arenas.
