THE McCARTHY STORY
Built from Humble Beginnings
It was over 150 years ago when an Irish immigrant named Timothy McCarthy began a lumber business in Ann Arbor, Michigan, building farmhouses and barns. The company he founded in 1864 is now a multi-billion dollar construction firm and one of the largest and most diversified commercial construction companies in America.
For 138 years, we were primarily a family owned business. That changed in 2002 when the company became 100% employee owned. Each of us now has a personal — and financial — stake in the company's future, and each of us now has a greater responsibility to each other to innovate and provide real value. The net result? An empowering environment that is entrepreneurial in nature, and is directed towards providing our clients with creative and value-oriented building solutions.
