30 Years of Serving the Kansas City Metro
Harmon Construction Celebrates Milestone Anniversary
Harmon Construction officially turned 30 years 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, and we’re looking forward to the next 30 years and beyond!
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.”
We are appreciative of our team, advisory board, clients, partners, friends, and families who played the big role of supporting us throughout the years. We respect you and can’t wait to see what the future holds for all of us. Thank you.
Join us for a celebration at Harmon Headquarters on September 26th! (4:30-6:30)
