Company: Who We Are
Cobalt Construction is a fully licensed and insured building and contracting business. It is operated by husband/wife team Matt and Kim Camacho who believe that their hard working, family centered values are what have fueled their success. They originally started the company in Flagstaff, Arizona where both grew up. The company transitioned to be headquartered out of Bullhead City, but continues to offer services throughout Northern Arizona.
Matt spent his childhood years learning and perfecting the art of his father’s trade, masonry. Through years of hands-on experience he learned the importance of quality workmanship, and how every home starts with a solid foundation. Matt personally lays out and forms up the foundation of every home he builds.
Kim’s father owned a successful insurance agency where she worked, which formed her keen sense of business and customer service. A few years after obtaining her Bachelor’s degree in Business Finance from NAU, she joined Matt in the construction business. Although Kim handles the office side of the business, you will often find her tagging along with Matt on the jobsite or meeting with customers to help with design features and picking out the finishing touches on their homes.
A few years into his construction career, Matt recognized that it would take more than the skill set he had on hand to create the business he dreamed of, and he went back to college to get his Bachelor’s degree in Construction Management. His education has proved instrumental in helping him coordinate and complete large complicated projects as well as small ones. Matt has worked on everything from the every day homes, to large custom mountain and river homes, and even multi-million dollar apartment complexes as a project manager.
Outside of the business both Matt and Kim are active members of their community. Matt is also the varsity soccer coach at the local high school, and the president and founder of a not-for-profit soccer club serving the tri-state area. It is Matt and Kim’s heartfelt desire to provide a means for every talented youth soccer player to be able to play at a competitive level, regardless of their families financial situation. And through their non-profit, Rio FC, this has been made possible for many kids. As a bonus, their Rio FC teams are some of the highest ranking teams in the western region of the US. It is because of the customers and sub-contractors that Cobalt Construction is able to give back to the community through Rio FC, and make these opportunities possible for these youth players.
Matt and Kim are hardworking parents of three great kids, ages 7-16. It is not uncommon to find Philip, Julia or Lucas on the job site during non-school hours. Phillip and Julia run the bobcat often to earn extra money, and the little one Lucas just loves to visit the jobsite and “supervise” as any 7 year old would. They love being near their parents and are involved in day to day operations.
Matt and Kim pride themselves on their small town values and beliefs. They put huge emphasis on quality before quantity. If it wouldn’t be right by them, they believe it wouldn’t be right by the customer. They treat all their clients as they would friends.
