Who We Are

TOMCO was founded with a rebellious spirit and objective; to provide excellent general contracting services in a fair, client-first and employee-first way.

Our mission is to provide client-focused general contracting and construction project management services for high-end retail and commercial clients. ‘Constructing Tomorrow’ is ingrained in our culture.  We have a forward-thinking approach to our business and believe our continued success will be achieved through meaningful connections, honesty and integrity.  We are committed to being masters of our niche by having the best team, a strong base of subcontractors and by providing a constructive and productive working environment that supports positive client relationships.

Our goal is to build long-term relationships with our valuable business partners.   With our clients, this means becoming a master of their brands and providing fair pricing with consistent, quality workmanship and service. It also means keeping them happy through the process.  We don’t want to partner with every retailer, we want to be a great partner with the retailers we work with.  With our subcontractors and vendors, it means working with them towards a common goal and providing them with the tools they need to be successful.  We are also committed to the excellence and growth of our team members.  We accomplish this through fair pay, continuing education, frequent constructive reviews, cross-training, team building and peer driven training.

Our commitment is to remain socially conscious by donating to employee nominated charities and participating in company-wide local initiatives such as volunteering at local food banks, food drives, and supporting local emergency and animal services.

History

TOMCO was created in 2015 with the purpose of engaging in retail construction with an emphasis on building and maintaining relationships with our clients and subcontractors in a way that the standard model does not allow.  The goal is to create and grow a business built on ethical business practices with our business partners.  This is achieved through an engaging corporate culture that focuses on the continued advancement of all team members.
