In 2006, Newport News native Devon Henry purchased the Silty Lady, a small construction business that was located in Portsmouth. The company was appropriately renamed Team Henry Enterprises, LLC and moved to Copeland Industrial Park in Newport News. Since then, Team Henry has grown into a successful contracting company specializing in construction management, environmental, marine and emergency response services.
Team Henry Enterprises works on both government and private-sector contracts, managing road construction, mitigating wetlands, and establishing emergency shelters for FEMA.

Team Henry has won numerous awards for its outstanding work.
