Our History and Growth

The John H. Allen Construction Company was founded in June, 1974, with one employee… John H. Allen.  The first year sales were approximately $21,000.00.  The business was operated out of the owner’s home.  In 1977, John H. Allen Construction moved out of the home office and into its first office at 425 E. Chester.  That move was the turning point in the Company’s increased business.

Business owner, John H. Allen, began building a solid customer base with local insurance agents to handle their property losses.  Insurance restoration business helped carry the Company through the winter months and was virtually recession proof.

As the need for additional office space and storage increase, John H. Allen Construction Co. relocated in 1979 to its present location at 156-A Airways Boulevard.  In 1979, John H. Allen Construction Company became incorporated.  In 1980, the Company added a retail sales division by opening Allen’s Custom Interiors.  This new addition increased the Company’s buying power and helped to maximize profits.

Over the next three years, additional employees were added and an estimator was added to our sales force.  The Company now had nine employees.  In 1986, the decision was made to acquire a local plumbing company that was going out of business.  American Plumbing Co. became another division of John H. Allen Construction Company., Inc., and two more employees were added.  The next four years John H. Allen Construction Co., Inc., Allen’s Custom Interiors, and American Plumbing Co. operated together and became a full service contracting firm.  In 1990, a major decision was made to have a corporate name change and operate all services under one name…
