Metcon, a Native American-owned business was founded in 1999 in Pembroke, NC.  Met-con which stands for (Metal and Construction) was conceived as a General Contractor specializing in panelized metal studs & truss.  In their infancy Metcon worked primarily on housing and related panelized projects throughout North Carolina.  They quickly grew and transitioned into a full service commercial General Contracting operation still incorporating metal framed systems whenever possible.  The UNC system higher education bonds of the 2000’s were a catalyst to Metcon’s growth as Metcon was the primary contractor for the UNC-Pembroke campus.


Metcon’s operations have continued to grow opening a regional office addition in Raleigh, NC in 2011 and now in Charlotte and Columbia in 2013.  With over 650 successful project completions Metcon delivers General Contracting and Construction Management services for Higher Education, K-12, Medical, Mission Critical, Industrial, Commercial, Corporate, and Government Entities throughout North and South Carolina.  With their proven success, Metcon was recently recognized by the U.S. Department of Commerce as the 2013 National Minority Contractor of the Year.  Metcon is N.C’s largest homegrown minority construction firm.
