Messer Construction Co., a Midwest and Southeast-based commercial construction manager and general contractor, is pleased to announce the opening of its tenth regional office in Raleigh, N.C.
“Raleigh and the entire Triangle area have become a focal point for successful growth in the Southeast, with even more on the horizon,” said Bob Williams, vice president and region leader of the Raleigh office and operations. “This is a place where our employees not only want to do work, but a community where they want to live, raise families and give back.”
Messer is no stranger to the Carolinas. The 100 percent employee-owned company also calls Charlotte, N.C. home. For the past eight years, Messer has been dedicated to expanding the vibrant landscape of the Queen City, working on top projects at Atrium Health (formally Carolinas Healthcare System), CaroMont Health, Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Siemens, UNC Charlotte, Sharon Towers, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, Johnson C. Smith University, and many others across the region.
The company has had its sights set on the Triangle for the last several years, activating a plan for entry that began in 2017. In the last six months, key employees living in Raleigh and surrounding areas have been working in the market to build relationships with the subcontractor and business community and establish the company in the region. The legwork paid off, enabling Messer to sign an office space lease in Wade Park in June.
After beginning 86 years ago as a small, family-owned business, Messer has evolved into a billion-dollar, 100 percent employee-owned company. The structure change in 1990 allowed all employees to become stockowners of the company, giving everyone a seat at Messer’s roundtable. This move has been a catalyst for Messer’s growth and the driving force behind the company’s commitment to build better lives for their customers, communities and each other. More than 25 years later the company’s workforce increased tenfold, its annual revenue multiplied by more than eight, and it saw swifter expansion into new regions.
Messer specializes in aviation, health care, higher education, industrial, science and technology complex construction and employs more than 1,100 people within its Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, and Tennessee operations.
