Healy Long & Jevin (HLJ) began its concrete operation in 1978 but traces its construction roots back to 1891. The family-owned general contractor spent a century building much of Delaware, and HLJ now also serves Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland.
Working through down economies, HLJ learned to operate lean and broaden horizons with new clients, new markets, and broader scopes — even when that meant pursuing smaller projects. Services include excavation and pile driving, cast-in-place, post-tensioning, filigree, architectural concrete, foundations, pumping, demolition, and floor flatness testing. The company received a Golden Trowel in 2010 for a Boeing factory in Ridley Park, Pa.
HLJ regards suppliers and subcontractors as a valuable asset. As materials supplier Timothy Karaso of Penn-Jersey Building Materials puts it: “HLJ has given our company the opportunity to participate in various projects from complex structures to intricate buildouts. The organization is fully committed until the job is done and the customer is happy.”
