The Tradition of Building Excellence
Metcon has been building excellence for our clients since our inception. North Carolina owned and operated since 2000, we have grown from a small local general contractor into one of the most capable and trusted providers of construction services. As the Carolina’s largest minority owned construction firm, we have a unique perspective that is invaluable in our industry. True to our Native American Culture is an appreciation for the environment, sustainable construction, and environmental stewardship. To that end, Metcon is also proud to be a leader in the construction of energy positive buildings that generate more energy than they consume. Our company has completed more energy positive buildings than any other construction firm in the US and (3) of our energy positive projects have won national “Best of the Best” awards from Engineering News and Record. But more than our portfolio of projects and awards, is our people. Their dedication to exceeding our client’s expectations, their problem solving, capacity for technology and innovation, and uncompromised commitment to safety, make Metcon not only a great place to work, but a great partner for our clients. Our promise to you is to provide a quality, cohesive building experience resulting in a first-class facility. Every member of our team shares our mission to build lasting relationships, to develop people who lead, and leave a positive impact on our communities.
Aaron Thomas, President & CEO
Metcon is a Native American-owned business (Lumbee) founded in 1999 in Pembroke, North Carolina. Metcon, which stands for (Metal and Construction), was conceived as a General Contractor specializing in panelized metal studs and truss. As a young company, Metcon worked primarily on housing and related panelized projects throughout North Carolina. The firm quickly 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 was a catalyst to Metcon’s growth as a primary contractor for the UNC-Pembroke campus. Expanding their focus in Education, the company quickly became a leader, in not only University construction, but also K-12 facilities across the Carolinas. Today, Metcon remains headquartered in Pembroke, North Carolina, with offices in Raleigh, Charlotte, Fayetteville, North Carolina and Columbia, & Myrtle Beach South Carolina. Metcon recently opened an office in National Harbor, Maryland.
