About Us

Company History

William Taylor & Co. was started in January 1954 by William W. Taylor, Jr., a sole proprietorship specializing in single-family residential construction. The company grew and developed a reputation for custom homes with the very best quality available in the industry.

During the 1970's, Taylor continued to build custom residential homes, developing a strong construction team and added commercial construction, including metal buildings and tilt-wall concrete construction. The company also developed a volume of business in negotiated Design-Build Contracts. The company successfully completed Motels, Townhomes, Apartment Complexes, Office Buildings and Retail Centers.

In January 1981, Ford Taylor joined the construction business and formed a partnership. Since 1990 Ford Taylor has fulfilled the role of managing partner and directed daily operations of the company. In January 1992, a Corporation was formed to improve and simplify the accounting procedures, reporting, and placed the company in a position to handle larger multi-million dollar bonded contracts. William W. Taylor Jr. served as Chairman Emeritus from 2004 until his death.
