||Matthews Construction Co., Inc. founded in 1955 by CEO Bobby E. Matthews, is one of the leading general contractors in the southeast. Bobby remains active in the company and is supported by his sons Gary E. Matthews, President, and Nathan A. Matthews, Executive Vice President. Grandsons Andrew E. Matthews, preconstruction and Brian Roberts, Project Management, continue the family tradition of providing honesty, integrity and a guarantee of quality workmanship on each project, providing hands on contracting from start to finish.
We believe the greatest asset of our company is our people. With nearly 70 full-time staff, the average employee has been with Matthews Construction for over fifteen years. We continually retain an in-house staff of engineers and skilled craftsmen who understand all aspects of a project from design through construction and delivery to our clients.
The headquarters and corporate office remain in the original Conover office, but in response to steady growth and expansion of territory, Matthews Construction opened a full service office in Charlotte, NC in 2001. We sincerely feel that our company separates itself from the competition by remaining one of the few general contractors with self-performing capabilities. Our people have the capability to do all aspects of concrete work, masonry, carpentry, steel erection and plumbing. This unique ability in today's construction marketplace provides our clients with a team member that will deliver a high quality project, within the established budget and delivered on a "fast-track" basis.
In the construction industry, repeat business is the best indicator of a general contractor's capability. We are pleased to report that our firm typically averages over 50% of annual volume from repeat clients. Our extensive experience gives us the ability to construct a diverse variety of facilities. We have a full range of experience commercial, hospitality/recreation, industrial/distribution, multi-family/mixed use, healthcare/office, religious, education and interiors.
