Highlights of CCC’s History
In 1947 Merl Huebner and George Guthrie founded what would become a nationally recognized industrial construction company. While many of the early successes were in commercial construction, it would not be long before the industrial projects far outnumbered the commercial projects. That continuing trend has resulted in more than 90% of all CCC Group projects being “Industrial” in nature. Growth is a byproduct of commitment and customer loyalty. When combined with a family of employees dedicated to satisfying a client’s needs and solving serious problems, customer loyalty is created. CCC Group is fortunate to have forged relationships with clients that have spanned decades. Those relationships and the challenges that dedication often brings, have strengthened our company and fueled our growth.
To this day, we forge new relationships and welcome new challenges. Today, CCC is a nationally ranked company with 2500 employees, several regional and international offices providing multi-disciplined construction services to a wide variety of markets both in the U.S. and in select foreign locations.
