In the late nineties, an unexpected offer came to J.B. A construction company (Superfos) wanted to expand into the Jacksonville area and wanted to buy J.B. Coxwell Contracting. After discussing the matter with his family, J.B. agreed to the sale. He stayed on as a consultant and his son and son-in-law remained as employees as well. His wife and daughters chose to leave. The new company had similar values and beliefs as J.B. and things went well.
