Alexander Building Construction Co. Celebrates 90 Years
Harrisburg, PA, June 25, 2018 . . . Alexander Building Construction Co., a member of The Butz Family of Companies, is pleased to announce that the company is celebrating 90 years in business. Today, Alexander is a leader in the construction industry in Central Pennsylvania. Alexander has been consistently ranked over the last 30 years among the nation’s Top 400 Contractors by ENR, McGraw-Hill's construction industry magazine, and is a part of one of the largest and most reputable construction management firms headquartered in Pennsylvania.
Alexander was formed in May 1928, by H. B. Alexander, a civil engineer, out of his home on Vaughn Street in Harrisburg. The company continues to operate its main office from the same location. The firm has grown steadily over the years from a small, general contracting enterprise to one of Central Pennsylvania's largest construction management firms with offices in Harrisburg and State College. Additional notable milestones include:
"Alexander's success stems not from short-term gains, but from long-term relationships," says Rick Seitz, President of Alexander. "Although employing some of the freshest new talent in the business, we also value the experience of our veteran construction managers and superintendents. Our growth over the last four decades is due to our people, first and foremost."
"Alexander is dedicated to superior project delivery in an atmosphere of teamwork and open communication in all our business relationships. We continue to be recognized for providing the highest level of professional service resulting in exceptional project delivery for our clients," says Seitz.
"In addition to our people, one of the things that sets Alexander apart and allows us to compete, not just with other local firms, but with larger national firms, is our ability to respond to market needs through increased use of technology and innovative approaches such as Lean Construction," says Christopher Magent, General Manager of the State College office and Director of Business Development for The Butz Family of Companies. "Incorporating technology and Lean methodologies into our projects allows us to provide Target Value Design and to complete our projects faster and more economically."
Alexander will be celebrating its 90th anniversary through June 2019 with special client events in both regions, social media posts, e-newsletters featuring employee memories and the launch of a new website. Additionally, The Butz Family of Companies is celebrating the 75th anniversary for Shoemaker Construction Co. and the 175th anniversary for Alvin H. Butz, Inc. Year-long celebrations are planned for all three companies.
