Butz Family of Companies Ranks Among Top 400 Contractors in 2013

Allentown, PA, June 28, 2013 . . . The Butz Family of Companies earned themselves a spot on Engineering News-Record's (ENR) list of the Top 400 Contractors in 2013. This year, the firm ranked #270, besting last year's ranking of #273. Butz remains the only locally-owned firm to be consistently ranked as a Top 400 Contractor.

ENR uses construction revenue from the previous year as its primary grading criteria, making the Top 400 list a showcase of only the best and most profitable construction management and general contracting firms. The construction management entity, which consists of Alexander Building Construction Co., Alvin H. Butz, Inc. and Shoemaker Construction Co., enjoyed a 6.6% increase in total revenue from 2011, marking this the third year that they have enjoyed such an increase.

"We are thrilled with the continued growth and development of our company," says Greg L. Butz, President and CEO of the Butz Family of Companies. "The numbers accurately represent the expertise of our project teams and the commitment of all our employees toward providing the highest quality construction management."

Despite facing a struggling economy, The Butz Family of Companies have had much success in recent years and are quickly reaching revenue totals closer to those before the recession hit in 2008. This is in large part due to the three companies' ability to build long-term relationships and acquire repeat business.

Last year, the Butz Family of Companies oversaw more than 65 construction projects, including:

  • DeSales University Gambet Center
  • PNC Field
  • Philadelphia Housing Authority - Norris Apartments
  • Mount Nittany Medical Center - Lance and Ellen Shaner Cancer Pavilion
  • Gettysburg Hospital - Emergency Department Expansion and Renovation
  • LEAP Academy - S.T.E.M. High School
  • KIPP Philadelphia Elementary Academy
