Many of our owners and employees are the second- and third-generation in their family to work for Congleton-Hacker. Construction is our passion, and we take pride in the work of our firm.

An owner of Congleton-Hacker is involved in every major project we do because your project is a top priority for our company.

We’re here before the job is started, so you know you’ll get the best subcontractors for the best value. We’re here during the job, so you know you’ll have continuity from pre-bid to the opening of the facility. And we’ll be here long after the job is through.

We combine tech-savvy craftspeople with a blend of general contracting and construction management, so our superintendents have the sophistication to manage a project combined with a hands-on knowledge of how to build.
