After 109 years, Harold O’Shea Builders has not only built construction projects, but also strong relationships with its clients, CEO Mike O’Shea says. “It is the center of our strategic plan,” he says. “O’Shea is a differentiator when it comes to building lasting relationships.” Based in Springfield, Ill., O’Shea Builders specializes in general contracting, remodeling and renovations, and civil services. O’Shea’s great-grandfather, John O’Shea, founded the company in 1901 as a homebuilder. “He built one or two homes at a time,” Mike O’Shea says.

For nearly 80 years, Culpepper Con­struction has not only remained true to the markets in which it excels, but it has also strategically grown its reach to offer the array of construction services its customers demand. As a result, the Talla­hassee, Fla.-based company has developed a reputation for high-quality, reliable work performed throughout the southeastern United States.

When your name is Samson, people expect you to do all the heavy lifting. That certainly is true of Samson Electric Inc. As an example, in 1986, Samson Electric installed the electrical systems for a hotel run by Princess Tours in Denali National Park, where Denali or Mt. McKinley – the tall­est mountain in North America – is located.

Reliable Builders Inc. (RBI) was est­ab­lished in 1977 by Jong K. Kim, CEO and president, to rebuild residential homes in Guam after the island was ravaged by Super Typhoon Pamela in 1976. Begin­ning with one backhoe, one truck and two employees, the firm completed nearly 65 homes within its first seven years in operation.

Fargo Pacific Inc. (FPI) was established in 1975, and, although it has endured a few lean years, it has maintained a steady stream of construction work throughout its home on Guam since its inception. The past few years, in fact, have been especially fruitful for the general contractor, which puts it in a good position as the U.S. military begins to redeploy thousands of Marines and their families to Guam from Okinawa, Japan.

Although Dennis’ 7 Dees celebrates its 55th anniversary in 2011, its experience in the business dates back much further, back to 1927 when grandparents Bernard and Florence Esch launched a one-person lawn mowing business, and later lived their dream by owning a wholesale rhododendron nursery.  In 1956, their daughter Merle met Robert Snodgrass.

WELBRO Building Corp. Inc. runs the gamut in construction contracting services. Precon­struc­tion, construction and construction management, and even offering warranties and follow-ups on its services are on the company’s list of “dos” and “know-hows.” And while these services may seem typical of any construction company, what makes WELBRO unique is how they deliver.

Sloan & Co.’s reputation for workmanship and innovation has earned the West Caldwell, N.J.-based company a leading position among drywall and interiors contractors in the Northeast. “The type of work that we do is usually the more complex projects,” Vice President of Operations Eric Takach notes. “We have the ability to run a large project or multiple large projects on schedule, but it’s our people and team approach that sets us apart.”
