Company History

Founded in 1968, EMJ has built over 500 million square feet of construction projects located across the nation. Edgar M. Jolley, Founder, started with the idea that completing projects on time while building relationships should be the cornerstone of all EMJ projects. That philosophy has resulted in sound business principles, solid reputation and has fueled our growth to be recognized nationally as one of the best and most capable general contractors in the United States.

Today, you will find EMJ's name as the builder of record on all types of projects including airports, education, entertainment, government/civic, grocery, healthcare, hospitality, industrial/warehouse, Native American tribal communities, office buildings, parking, lifestyle/mixed use development and retail, renewable energy, renovations, worship centers. Our diversity, success and reputation are the result of our commitment to maintain those philosophies and values that we had when we started.

We build excellence from coast to coast.
