From the RBJ…Building firm aims to grow key markets

Taking a bigger piece of growing markets for retail, education and multifamily housing construction and expanding its operating territory are goals for R-J Taylor General Contractors Inc., which does business as Taylor, the Builders.

The Penfield-based general contracting firm marks its 30th anniversary this year. Its expansion will focus on the Southern Tier and Ithaca regions, said CEO and co-founder James Taylor.

While there are plans to grow, the business will continue to focus on customer satisfaction, he said.

“Clients can’t afford to have people come back for repairs,” Taylor said. “Things have to be done right the first time.”

Started in 1984, the company was co-founded by Richard Taylor, James’ father. He worked for small- to midsize regional businesses that did not have internal construction departments. He was named president in 1986.  read more at the RBJ…
