Harmon Construction Celebrates Milestone Anniversary

Harmon Construction officially turned 30 this week (July 11, 2017). Tim Harmon founded Harmon Construction in 1987. He and his wife, Janet, moved to Kansas City from Seattle, WA in 1986 to build the General Motors Fairfax Assembly Plant. After settling here, he saw opportunity to start a company where integrity, respect and professionalism would set it apart in the construction arena. Under Tim’s leadership, Harmon has achieved that goal while setting a steady pace for controlled growth.


“On August 18, 1987, only three weeks after ‘hanging our shingle out,’ we had won a contract to build a maintenance building for The City of Lenexa for $168,900. Our pencils were sharp that day beating the next bidder by a slim margin of half of one percent. This set the wheels in motion, validated our business plan and gave us confidence to charge forward.” – Tim Harmon, president


We believe the success of Harmon has come by building Relationships Before Buildings and delivering on our promises. It’s a time-tested traditional approach to business that has served our clients, associates and shareholders well since the beginning. Over 90% of the Harmon clients are either repeat business or referral.


When asked what Harmon means to him, 28 year Harmon veteran Joe McManus says, “[Harmon is] a great bunch of people that enjoy working together and are always willing to help each other out of a bind.”

    Congratulations Tim on you and your teams success!!!

    We are so happy to have been a part of your history and I am hoping contributed to your
    safe operations!
    I am still in the business of providing consulting around both OSHA and DOT requirements with safety always our priority.
    However, we have expanded our offering with a cloud based safety management system called Compliance Safety Manager.
    In our system, we track many things including Personnel, Training (in person or utilizing our cloud based training partners to deliver and track OSHA safety or driver training), background checks, drug testing and monitoring, asset management, maintenance, repairs, accidents, injuries and really just want to help “simplify safety”….we believe anything monitored improves.
    Please let me know if you or someone on your team would be available to for a free demonstration of CSM.
    Again, congratulations and I pray that God will continue to bless the work of your hands.
    Best regards,
    Brenda Craig
