A BRIEF HISTORY
Since our establishment in 1948, H.G. Reynolds Company, Inc. has been dedicated to becoming one of the elite in offering construction services in the southeast. In 1948, Harry Graham Reynolds started H.G. Reynolds, a general contracting firm. A graduate from Clemson University, Mr. Reynolds began his business building small commercial buildings in Greenwood, S.C. Some of his early projects included a school in Rock Hill, a gymnasium in Edgefield, and a hospital in Walterboro. In 1970, H. G. Reynolds was relocated to Trenton, S.C., where it continued operation for the next twenty years. During this time, H.G. Reynolds defined itself as being a major player in the construction of medium to large size school facilities. In 1986, Mr. Reynolds retired and his two sons, Leland and Jeffrey, became 50/50 owners of the firm. Since their initiation as the company leaders, Leland and Jeffrey have established a dedicated company team that has been able to service the local construction market, and add several industrial and institutional clients to H.G. Reynolds’ list of clients, as well as continuing to construct school and prison buildings. In an effort to increase H.G. Reynolds’ services in the construction market, a division in Henderson, N.C., was established in 1991 under the leadership of Ken Long, a graduate of NC State University. The Henderson Branch contracts similar type projects with an added emphasis on water and sewer infrastructure.
For the past half century, H.G. Reynolds Company has successfully delivered projects ranging from housing up-fits to commercial and industrial structures. Although the mainstay of H.G. Reynolds projects is in South Carolina, we have delivered and still continue to deliver projects ranging from Georgia to the lower parts of Virginia. Licensed in South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia, the Reynolds project management team consists of seven project managers with over 20 years of experience. The project team is further enhanced through the dedication of the project superintendents and office staff. With over 20 project superintendents having experience ranging from 5 to 25 years, H.G. Reynolds maintains outstanding and professional supervision throughout all phases of our projects. H.G. Reynolds typically self performs 15 to 20 percent of the work that goes into a project. This percentage consists of building layout, foundation, and slab construction. By performing these stages of the building construction, H.G. Reynolds ensures sound building layout and foundation assembly.
The H.G. Reynolds Company, Inc., mission is to provide the best contracting services within the construction industry in an ethical manner with unparalleled quality, cost, and safety that exceed our clients’ expectations. As we progress through the new millennium, H.G. Reynolds’s vision is to become one of the leading competitors in industrial, institutional, commercial, and multi-family housing throughout the southeast while increasing performance by expanding our exceptional quality, dedication, and teamwork to the design-build project delivery system. The H.G. Reynolds Company philosophy is based upon customer satisfaction and commitment. Within the company infrastructure, quality and commitment are stressed towards the clients’ interests. Quality and commitment are also focused upon project team members such as subcontractors, architects, and construction managers. H. G. Reynolds recognizes that value for our client is achieved by being committed to the planning stages and maintained during the construction phase through effective quality control.
