The Kings are skilled carpenters -- in the early years, they were in
the field on a daily basis and doing all the construction work themselves.
Word quickly spread about the quality of the buildings, and soon their
business expanded to the point the Kings had to move into the office to
manage the the operation. But, occasionally, John & Merv can’t resist
getting back out to a job site to spend the day building alongside the crew.
Elmer runs the family farm and works with the business when he's needed.
Today King Construction's organization has grown to include more than 100 people.
In addition to our construction teams, we have an in-house staff to manage engineering, drafting, project scheduling, materials purchasing and all of the administrative functions that go along with a complex and active business.
We utilize the talent and skills of our own highly-experienced and well-trained
crews, all recruited from the Amish/Mennonite communities surrounding our
office and shop facilities in New Holland, Pennsylvania.
Over the years, we've grown a team of 10 crews, so we're well-prepared to
manage multiple projects of any size.
One of our strengths is the longevity of service within our entire construction
team. Our construction supervisors have an average tenure of nearly 20 years,
our crew foremen average more than 10 years, and most of our crew members
have 5 years of experience. This continuity and longevity is almost unheard of
in the construction industry, and it's a primary reason why our buildings are
known for their fine detail and superior craftsmanship.
To maintain our all-important quality control, we provide all the framing and
finish materials for each of our projects. We also build all of our components: stalls, grilles, aisle doors, Dutch doors, cupolas and an assortment of fittings
for the barn interiors. In addition to carpentry, we have our own mason to
complete the stone and stucco work that is often an integral part of our designs.
Over the past three-plus decades, King Construction has completed nearly 2000
projects throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Our company now builds
