Stewart & Tate Celebrates 80th Anniversary
February 4, 2015 —Stewart & Tate Construction, an award-winning construction firm based in York, celebrates its 80th anniversary this year.
Founded as the York Construction Company in 1935, Stewart & Tate has experienced strong, steady growth over the course of the last 80 years through its offering of quality services and its strategic acquisitions. Beginning in 2003, the purchase of Richard D. Poole, LLC, now Stewart & Tate Construction, entered the firm into the commercial building construction business—the purchase also included Henry H. Lewis Contractors, an Owings Mills, MD construction management firm specializing in institutional construction and historic restoration projects. The strategic move established Stewart & Tate in the region’s commercial and institutional building construction markets with a deep resume of flagship projects.
Today, Stewart & Tate serves customers throughout central Pennsylvania and Maryland and has grown to employ more than 300 personnel.
“To this day, Stewart & Tate is still driven by the entrepreneurial spirit and ethics instilled by our founder, Robert H. Stewart and my father, Eugene C. Tate” said Tim Tate, Stewart & Tate President and CEO. “We have grown to become a regional leader in sitework, industrial, and general building construction who relentlessly works to build projects of the highest quality and provide a superior construction experience for our clients.”
Currently the firm’s projects include the restoration of the Washington Monument in Baltimore, the construction of over one million square feet of warehouse space, the completion of a new manufacturing facility for Carlisle Construction Materials, and the construction of three new buildings for the Maryland School for the Blind.
